August Martin High School Reviews
I attended August Martin Highschool and I dont believe it is a bad school I graduated from the school has things that need to be addressed but all public schools do I am currently working as a Lab tech for a major hospital.It's not the schools it is the children if you go to school to learn then you will ..........Its up to us to enforce that in our children.
I warned the Deans at August Martin H.S. that their bad leadership will be a part of the school closing. The students there are so playful with the deans, because the deans play around often with the students. Upon visiting the school, the students are wondering around in the halls, cursing, yelling, etc. There are ALWAYS fights around the school, relating to the students who attend that school. My friend's teenage son attends there, and it is terrible that he can not read, or write properly. I agree with closing the school. If they school is not meeting the reading and math grades that was set, then why waist time and money on it?
August Martin has always been bad. I was there from 1982-1986. I learned nothing there to prepare me for life and work challenges. I failed math and gym an entire year and my counselor did not say anything to me until one week before graduation, to tell me I was not graduating because I failed math and gym! The teachers and staff have never cared and lack the education themselves to provide sufficient guidance.
this school need to be close.....a lot of studenst are failing classes ,,SMH ...August Martin is the worst school ever after jamaica high ......i will never send my child to that school never ..people in there are not educated nat all they don't know how to talk to people omg I hate that school with all my life
i don't think this school is a good school because , the people in there are not serious they take the students as a joke ..they don't care if the students are not graduate .....
From what I hear about this school I would tell everyone not to consider this school for their children....The students themselves will tell you that it is a terrible school for academics. The students don't care, they are unmotivated. One child said her brother attends this school and failed every class. What is going on at August Martin?
