My experience at Martinsville high school, has been incredible despite the odds.We have many clubs and sport teams that do fairly well.Speaking for me a varsity cheer captain I love this school and the spirit it brings to the fans. Honestly, this school has prepared me for the outside world teaching me more about my characteristics.This school being one on one really helped me and the students who needed that extra push.This school really works with students and tries to push them to do more and beyond my gpa is a 3.7 and I'm in every academic club gaining leadership skills for college.I honestly believe that my school will change the faces of the students,and make a better world.

At Martinsville high school you will have some good teachers and some horrible teachers. During all my time there the work never challenged me. I was one of the smartest people in my grade. However, I was NOT prepared for college coming out of this school. Granted, I am going into an engineering program, so it will be hard. But since the work at Martinsville was so easy, I never learned and study skills and that hurt me when I got in college. Overall, I was not challenged at this school.
There are teachers here that have come to this school as a last result for a job. The teaching staff is mostly okay and quite a few are awesome! but the administration is bad. For example, this school year the adminstration waited until the first day to give out schedules and they were messed up. The guidance counselor would not take any requests to change classes until after the first week. There are some teachers here that are qualified to teach certain subject, but the adminstration has them teaching another class. Not to mention, we are under Academic Review. Another thing my school does badly is that they waste money a lot. They built a greenhouse my freshman year and claimed it would be used the next year, but it's been around 2 years now and we haven't even done anything related to using it. Also, they bought around 6 TVS around the same area in the commons (which is redundant) I've actually learned more from other programs outside of school than I ever have here. People from other schools who have came here hate it too. honestly, you should send your kids to Basset or Magna Vista because they are extremely better this school.
