Open Quote This school is complete tripe, I have went here for four years, and never once have I learned anything useful at all. Now I am attending Venture Alternative High School in hopes of maybe catching up with my friends, all of whome are graduating while I am 11 Credits behind. Thanks Martin High School. Close Quote

Open Quote I've had a couple of good teachers and made some good friends, but that's where the positive stuff ends. Discipline is lacking. Counselors don't counsel. Recently, the principal taught a regular class as part of an experiment, and nobody recognized her to be the principal! I think this suggests how involved the principals are. I dislike going to school everyday. Most teachers here are burnt out, and only show up for a paycheck. Also, there's the whole rich-kid snobbery thing going on. You need money here to succeed, whether that be in academics or sports. I'm a senior this year, and I long for graduation. Most of my education I earned through this school was either by accident, or in spite of this school. Thanks Martin High School. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
