Martin Luther High School Reviews

Overall the staff have a strong work ethic & drive to help their students succeed. I did not ever feel like I would not receive help if I was struggling in a class. It is a small school so you basically know everyone & everything about them allowing it to be easy to make friends. The sports environment is amazing, the football games are always so exciting & busy, & usually every sport you plan has wonderful coaches & fans! I would say the small school environment does not really prepare you for larger colleges because it is not as easy to get one on one help with professors, but overall I felt fairly prepared for college.

The school gradually went downhill throughout the four years I attended. Classes have gradually become easier throughout the years, making the school lose its "college prep" feel. Administration shows favor and bias towards male and female basketball teams, and will not enforce academic eligibility standards on the basketball teams, while enforcing them on all other sports teams and all non-sports groups. Teachers can be hit or miss, with some challenging and engaging their students, and some making the classes ridiculously easy and non-engaging. AP class selection has been growing, with new additions to the options every year. Music and Fine Art departments are led by some very passionate teachers who truly enjoy their work. Administration will silence students if they feel as though they are being attacked. Overall, teachers are a hit or a miss, the administration is a joke, and you will get a better education for free from a public school.
Overall, it was alright. I found my 'home' and family to be within the arts programs, such as choirs, theater, and studio art. It was not uncommom for there to be a noticeable bias towards the sports programs, whether it was for promoting/encouraging them or supporting them financially. I would like to see more support for the visual and performing arts throughout the entire school as there is for its sports.

On an educational note, I wish teachers would move alongside with those who struggle in the class instead of those who excel. I found myself dragging along in classes because the teachers would move on when they knew/saw those who excelled were understanding the topics.
