    "Martin has been a great experience for my grandson the past 2 years. He has had quality teachers, and the staff are all very friendly. As a retired educator, now teaching at the college level, I find myself referring to various strategies and creative ideas I have observed while volunteering at his school. There is a high level of energy and competence in every task performed. The front office could not be more professional and friendly, as well as other staff and faculty. I really appreciate the level of high expectations for the students,prepared teachers, and genuine concern obvious when you enter the classroom and observe. The only area I feel could use some evaluation and problem solving is the lunchroom behavior and noise level. It would benefit the students, lunchroom staff, and visitors. Overall, Martin has demonstrated all the qualities of a proficient, effective, and positive educational experience."

    "My son attends Martin Academy of Math and Science in Flowery Branch, GA. This school has offered amazing opportunities for him to learn with a real hands-on approach! They offer various models of learning, which meets the needs of every child there. I am so very pleased with his progress and wait with confidence to see what great things they do this school year! The faculty and staff could not be nicer, and the level of professionalism exceeds most other schools I've been involved with."

    "My children have been going to this school for many years. The school gets low test scores every year. Many of the teachers and staff are rude. The teachers clearly show favoritism towards certain students."

    "I have children that go to this school and have been disappointed over and over again by the teachers and administration. If I was given the opportunity to start over and pick another school, I would not pick this one for my kids. If you have children that require any educational modifications be prepared to deal with administration and teachers that are unable to make simple intelligent decisions. If you are tagged as an over involved parent and dare complain about the teachers, administration, or school then you will quickly find yourself and your children out casted at the school. Overall the teachers cater to the children in the gifted program, which incidentally get put into every club and get special treatment. If you have an average child, their accomplishments will not be recognized. Over the many years, there have been many situations of neglect towards my children. The administration at the school likes to bully parents and make them feel like their complaints are not justified and that the teachers there can do no wrong. My children have many negative experiences every year."

    "I have had both of my children in this school over the last 6 years. I have had a whirlwind of experiences both positive and negative here over the years. I am sad to say that the transition of this school to a 'Math and Science Academy' has been detrimental in an educational standpoint. My children have had some very caring and good teachers through their educational journey here, but the Administration doesn't seem to have a clue. From speaking with the staff, the high staff turnover rate is due to the poor leadership. Each time I have spoken with the principal she seems to be your conventional 'yes man', but doesn't really seem to know what her job responsibilities are or how to do them. The school cut the Art program out of its curriculum and replaced it with a sub-par arts 'n crafts time with an un-certified teacher among many other things. Perks of being an 'Academy' I suppose to the administration. I honestly believe children should be exposed to a broad spectrum of things at this age and I cannot fathom the benefits of the MANY recent changes. If you value your child's education, look to World Language Academy or any of the other great elementary schools in the area."
