    "Martin Van Buren might not have the highest ratings but it is what you make of your high school experience that helps you to succeed. If you are cutting school everyday you are hindering yourself from getting an education that a student in private school is getting. Moreover, this high school has so much great opportunities and events going on all the time. For example we have a great robotics team, and a variety of clubs. Also, at Martin Van Buren there is a wide range of sports that could be played here either in teams or just for the fun of it such as volley ball, soft ball, cricket, tennis and we also have a track team. At Martin Van Buren there are also many AP classes that can be taken such as AP World History, AP US History, AP English, AP Literature, AP Spanish, AP Computer Sciences, AP Biology, etc,."

    "MVB was an okay school. I had good times with friends. The teachers were good. I'd like to see it get better, less ghetto. Less crimes and less cutting from students."

    "I like that the teachers and staff cares about the children future.If we have a problem we can easily talk to any teacher or staff about. And i would like to see more children being active to be apart of the school's programs ."

    "I started at this school halfway through my sophomore year in 2005. This was due to a safety transfer from Jamaica highschool. Now although it gave me a chance to continue school in a completely different atmosphere. I was in no way safe in that school. It became apparent of that when I realized the amounts of fights that used to happen daily. In the school itself there were too many gangs as well. I think overall that unless you were a part of a gang the school was an absolutely dangerous place because of the violence. Besides the administration not doing a good job to ensure student safety I feel that the teachers taught very well. I can actually say that one of my most important classes that I took from Martin Van Buren was typing and I never regretted it up to this day. I actually remember my typing teachers name (Mr. Rosenfield). Besides I give the school a 3 out of 5 because the teachers were good. It just lacked a safe atmosphere which is crucial for students to succeed."
