Martin High School was a very fun experience in my life, if I could do it all over again...I definetly would! The teachers were all so friendly, easy to talk to and listened to what you had to say. I joined several clubs while in Martin High School and it was all very easy to get into and fun to spend time with. The principal was definetly a cool point, he always worried about us, he was almost like our second parent and I guess in a way he was. He would walk around campus and see how we were doing, not only that but he always bragged about us on social media saying how proud he was of us. He was definetly a reliable person and someone very friendly who would listen to your problems. The only bad thing about Martin was that during the past Martin got a bad reputation, I just want to say that the rumors are false and Martin is very friendly. After all its the flagship high school of Laredo!

Loved this school! It has the most down to earth people and coaches. I learned alot about school, life, and sports being here. Environment is always having you on your toes.
My experience with this school was pretty good, the attention that was given to us was very decent just I would like to see a change in unnecessary activities that just waste and take time that can used better, also I will say the food is very bad probably the only thing that completely its ruined however in terms of study there are pretty good classes like the magnet in case you want to study medicine however for engineers in this school in particular is very limited, however, services to go to another school are provided, dual enrollment is provided on this school but if you want to take them you must demonstrate and persuade the counselors to get them if not you don,t get this college benefit it does not matter if you are ready to take college classes
