    Student Culture & Diversity: At Martinsburg High School, it is like any other school. There is peer pressure, but you have to learn to avoid it like at any other school. There is not the racial thing going on at this school. People do judge people but you learn to like who you are and get with the crowd that you enjoy being with.

    Resources & Facilities: The school has great people working for it. They are very helpful whenever you need to know something or if you just need help with something. The bus drivers that I have had were great, they could control the kids on the bus and get us to school safely.

    Health & Safety: Martinsburg high school has a great bullying program that they support. We get a lesson every week on bullying and how to prevent it. We are also well taken care of at school. People have there own groups of people that they like to hangout with. The school doesn't have to many fights anymore, so it has gotten better over the years.

    Overall Experience: The school I go to is a great school. There is a lot of students that are into the academics, but there are also a lot of the students who just like the sports sense we are the 4 time football champions. There is a place for every kid to get into between clubs and organizations, or just to focus on there school work and gain the best knowledge that they can from the teacher that teach at the school.
