Want to take a step back to the 50's? Martinsville is the place to do it. However, I'm not talking about milkshakes and high-waisted swimsuits. Known for being the city with the last running KKK group, MHS's admin team has fought a long fight to end the stigma around racism in the town. This has failed. As a transfer my junior year, I was blasted away by the amount of homophobia, racism, sexism, and downright ignorance displayed at MHS. When the school received a shooting threat with a date on the bathroom stall, they told all parents that there WAS NOT a shooting threat and definitely no set date. This seemed to work until students began posting photos of the threat from the bathroom wall. If you want your child to have a subpar education and be taught by some of the least equipped to be educators, send them to MHS!

My personal experience at Martinsville High School so far has been pretty great! I have made life long friends here and have had some pretty great memories. It also has it's down falls though. One is that there are hardly any windows. But to be honest, I think Martinsville High School is a pretty great school academically and socially.
I would really like to see a change in curriculum at Martinsville High School. The current curriculum is outdated. I would also like to see a change in how students are treated by administrators and teachers. There are plenty of instances in which teachers and administrators have been rude to students. The facilities could also use numerous improvements. The floors and bathrooms always seem to be dirty and there's paint chipping all over the place. Martinsville High School is a good school, but many improvements could be made.
