    "The school needs to work on how to discipline correctly. There also needs to be a new system to get from place to place; small hallways cause jams as you walk to class."

    "MLK has a diverse and very friendly school atmosphere. I met people from many different backgrounds including culturally, economically, socially etc. Coming to this school at age 11, I was unsure on what was required of me in high school and beyond. But, with the help of the extremely caring and dedicated teachers, I was able to flourish in an environment that was both friendly, but underlyingly competitive. In my past five years in this school, however, I have come to learn and acknowledge MLK's faults. This largely includes the resources available to us as students. We are unable to expand the library and various online research tools to assist us in our studies. Additionally, the administration is largely uninvolved with the student body. Despite these shortcomings, however, MLK remains one of the best schools in Tennessee and strives to become better and more predominant with each passing day. My time in this school will forever remain an unforgettable and enriching experience."

    "Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet High School is a well-rounded academic magnet school. It is one of the top schools in Nashville, Tennessee and has won Blue Ribbon Awards! This school is a family, everyone here is united as one. The dynamics in diversity is unbelievably amazing. The school's teachers are phenomenal with their many degrees and doctorates. Their superb teaching and mentoring has groomed many fine MLK Alumnus. Our school's history is embedded within the fabrics of this country . This school not only has scholarly attainments but also a stunning sports team. Being a royal is everything and more. Being a royal means: Respect , Opportunity, Young Excellence, Authenticity, and Loyalty. I am proud to be a "Loyal Royal"."

    "Martin Luther King Jr Magnet provided me with just as good of an education as any private school and surpassed most schools in their math and science offerings. The school academically challenged me by offering a multitude of AP courses for college credit starting freshman year and allowed me to take high school math in seventh grade. The school was also highly diverse and a supportive and encouraging environment for learning and success. It was lacking in the arts department compared to most schools since it is a math and science focused school."

    "Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet High School definitely has changed from the time I was in 7th Grade till now as I am a Senior who will be graduating in 2017. The Diversity is great, but that's about it. Majority of the teachers are more worried about Test and being reviewed than the are actually teaching. Majority of the Coaches from the sports teams are piss poor and are not preparing students to play at the Collegiate level if they wish. The safety is great though, there are rarely any fights. The food isn't that bad, but of course it could be better. The facilities are improving, they are added onto the school and renovating the historic parts of the school."
