St. Martin High School is a pretty decent school for its size. There are teachers here that care about their students, but they make up the minority. The food served is disappointing and does not take into account the health of the students. I often pick the salads as an acceptable alternative. The rivalry among classes is laughable; pep rallies hosting inter-class tournaments do not the legitimate support to be engaging. The club and activities scene is also subpar. If the school has a BACC club, what is stopping the formation of an LGBTQ+ club? The administration apparently, as testimony from multiple students in several attempts suggests. The saving grace of the school are its students. I have found some of the most important people in my life at this school, and, although this is not an uncommon statement, I believe this reflects onto the student body. Overall, St. Martin is pretty average, but could be alot better in all demensions.

St. Martin High School is amazing. The principal is top notch and cares about each and every student. The school is very welcoming and everyone is kind to one another. We have so many amazing clubs. Whenever a student wants to start a club, our principal is ready to find a sponsor to make it happen. We have a very diverse student body and our school feels very safe. St. Martin has great athletics and an amazing crowd. We have a brand new football field and track, as well as a new baseball and football field house. Since I have started in St. Martin High School, we have won two state championships in dance and one in both bowling and cheer.
I had a great time there. When I attended, it was a melting pot of diversity. Bullying instances felt as if they were few and far between; I have a mentally disabled sister who made great friends while she was also there. The academics impressed me; we were actually one of the first schools to allow students to take college courses during their senior year!
The only thing that I found to be a problem was the favoritism the principal exhibited. For this reason, I found the vice principal to be better suited for her position, since she treated most punishments with objectivity.
