    "I used to like this school but did always dis agree with them only teaching to the TAKS test. I have two types of students. One is honor role and the other has always struggled in class due to attention problem. Some of the teachers are very good and really care about their student but I have noticed the last couple of years an attrition of young teachers that don't have the same compassion for their students and if your student needs any extra help they make it quiet clear that they will not receive it. We were very pleased at the beginning when they had a new principal start, thought it would be good for the school but we see nothing from her. I wish school would teach like they used to because only teaching for a test to get your school funding does nothing for these students in the areas they are failing."

    "I understand all of you who have issues with the fact that Martin may have a focus in certain grades on the TAKS test. But have you taken your child to any other school? I work at a local university and one of the problems that we continue to encounter are students who are not prepared for our first year courses. Do you think this is an issue with the school or with the system? It isn't just the schools job to raise our children. If you feel your child is not receiving enough at their particular school, then go ahead and supplement the education they're receiving with additional classes or educational time with you. We can't rely on schools to raise our children if we want them to succeed. The students who do best are those whose parents are engaged and do what they can to help their student succeed."

    "I agree with the bad reviews. The school is very test driven. Everything is TAKS. If your child is smart and doesn't need to be taught for the test, don't send him/her there. HISD has great Vanguard and Magnet schools with the gifted program. They actually teach your child to think, not to take a test."

    "Have you read the Houston's Chronicle school report card? Martin didn't even make it to the 400 school list in the Houston area. I can tell you that the last ones on that list are not good schools, so where is Martin? Only 3 schools in the Alief district made it on the list. I am so disappointed!"
