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.

This year, I will be a sophomore at Martinsburg High School. From the moment I walked in frehmen year, I loved this school.

The teachers here work hard everyday to help us understand ...  Read more

Martinsburg is a great school for those who want to achieve and do something in life. Most people put the school down, ignoring the kids who do care and achieve great success in school.

As the child of a military family, I have been in several schools and I must defend Martinsburg HIgh School as clearly the best school I have attended. It is a safe school, with caring teachers, and a diverse population. Like every school, some teachers rock while others just have rocks in their heads. ...  Read more

The administration is disinterested in educating the students. SAT scores overall have been low, and not much geared toward developing a pre-college curriculum to assist in the transition to college.
