    "My teachers go above and beyond to teach my classmates and I about different topics. I am very engaged in class because my teachers make learning fun. They are very helpful if you have any questions or need any extra help. They make sure no child gets left behind. If a specific student needs extra help, most teachers would even give up their lunch break to further explain the lesson to them. The students are willing to learn and participate a lot. All of my teachers respect me and are non-judgmental. The grading policy is fair. If our grades aren't that high, some teachers will give us a chance at extra credit to boost up our average.They aren't just teachers, they're also our mentors that guide us into the right path."

    "This school has a lot of great teachers that actually care about their students. The school itself isn't that clean. There's usually trash in the middle of the hallway, or gum stuck onto a seat or door. Most students care about their education, but others just cut class and often get in trouble. This school does offer a decent amount of clubs and sports, but it lacks the funding that we need to buy new equipment, or supplies. My best decision I made in this school was joining Scholars. You need to have high grades and perform community service. We are involved in Jr. Achievement, every year since I was a sophomore, we volunteered our time instructing students at a local elementary school. I enjoyed teaching them, at the end of the day they didn't want me to leave, and neither did I. If I could do it all over, I don't know if I would go to Martin Van Buren again. This school isn't the best, but I made connections with people that I might not have made with in another school. Also in this school, I stand out more because I am in the top 10% of my entire graduating class."

    "Martin Van Buren High School is one of the great school now, because now this school provide lots of extra curriculums activities. Such as like after class which can help student to get some extra time to do what subject they need help with. Also some students can do community service and leadership."

    "This school provides a lot of extracurricular activities for the students. i enjoyed being part of the dance and cheer-leading team throughout the four years i have been in this school. However most of the students happen to be disrespectful. They don't show respect to teachers and their peers. The teachers at this school are great supporters. Most of the teachers show genuine concern for their students and their well being. If i could do it all over again, i would choose Martin Van Buren High School again because i really like the teachers and feel that they can help me become successful in the future."
