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.
Review Martinsburg High School
Graduated from Martinsburg in May 2016. Spent four years of my life here. The school needs major renovation to the facilities and its learning equipment. I know the sports teams use fundraisers to aid in uniforms and such, but what are teachers to do for everyday items, like pencils? Teachers end up using their paychecks to provide for their classrooms, where the school cannot. It's not where the school will not provide, but rather where they cannot provide.
I enjoyed Martinsburg High School for the opportunities in academics (particularly with honors and AP classes) that helped to prepare me for college. Generally, I had a better experience in high school than I did in middle school.
What could be better is that they could update computer technology, fix the bathrooms, stay on top of restocking bathroom items, and give students more freedom during lunch time (so they do not have to be restricted to the lunch room).
