Martinsburg High School Ratings & Reviews

**On a preliminary note, I would like to make the statement that my review is an evaluation on an absolute, rather than a relative, basis. My experience with Martinsburg High School has been one of cookie-cutter curricula and over-emphasized state testing. Fortunately though, the "teaching" (inculcation) process is well established, so there is little resistance. A majority of the teachers and administrators are highly unappreciative of their students' unique abilities, which ultimately leads to an "education" that is of little interest or utility for a child. Individualized education is something reserved for those lying on the extreme ends of the bell curve. The majority of students go through their daily lives with schedules consisting of their bare minimum graduation requirements, and little else. Let us not ignore the athletic and sport clubs that overrun the school. It seems that student athletes are both the idols and ambassadors of the institution, praised by teachers and their peers alike. Of course, this is along side the individuals who have scored a "distinguished" ranking on the WESTEST 2 and have their names etched on plaques in the main hallways.

The school has gone through many changes in the past years. Even though most of the students are not in favor of many of them, they have worked. The school is getting better. Some teachers are not at the standards they should be, but that is not fault of the school. I am currently a senior and I have had some phenomenal teachers and some horrid teachers. Overall I am content with my education I have received at this school.

This year, I will be a sophomore at Martinsburg High School. From the moment I walked in frehmen year, I loved this school. I have had a lot of very exceptional teachers, who taught above and beyond the curriculum. Over the years, MHS has received a bad reputation by the public, however our administration is top notch. If there is an issue with a student, they are right on it, and they make sure the problem is resolved. The administration has really stepped up with the "20 Essentials of MHS Students" banners, which hang throughout the facility. These banners include 20 etiquite tips, such as "Make eye conact when speaking to an adult", "Make visitors feel welcome to the building", etc. This is an excellent school that just deserves a better reputation.

Discipline, basic manners, and basic respect for others, start at home. Most parents blame school staff when their child lack in these areas. These parents should look into the mirror to find the root of the problem. If the parents who complain would worked WITH the staff , rather than against them, maybe there would be more harmony and problems solved. My oldest graduated from MHS, and my youngest is now a student there. We are very appreciative of their teachers, whose calling is to encourage these kids to be the best that they can be. Sometimes moreso than their own parents. A+ from me!
