My experience at Martinsburg High School have been okay. I wish they were better. The school is poorly kept bathrooms don't have doors, ceilings are falling, the roofs leaks when it rains and floods the school, the teachers aren't trained correctly, they don't know what they are teaching half the time. Some teachers are absolutely amazing. The programs aren't funded, free breakfast and lunch is provided but is very unhealthy, the kids are extremely rude, don't listen, and cause disruptions.

Martinsburg High School is extremely diverse. There are teachers and students from different countries, showing us their different cultures. It also has lots of clubs and after-school activities that can prepare you for college and help you mature. On the other hand, there's very little discipline to trouble students. There are lots of fights and physical/verbal altercations in between classes with nothing being done about it. Also, we have a number of teachers that didn't take college classes on the subject they are teaching.
My experience at Martinsburg High School was very displeasing. Since the first day of my freshman year, I knew the student around me didn't care about there education, and only wanted to do what they wanted to do. Throughout the years, the teachers never took control. The students only tried to pass, not the learn. The school mostly cares about football. They treat the football players like the kings of the school. The principals want the football players to play, so when they do get in trouble, they are let go of there punishment. The principals only care about the football program over their education. This school does not prepare you for the next leave of education.
