One of my children graduated from Martino and another is there right now. We have had an excellent experience at this school. There are so many opportunities to get involved...the school actively encourages kids to form clubs. Teachers make learning fun...both my kids love/loved going to class.

I have had two children at this school, one current and one who is now in high school. The teachers and curriculum at Martino have met each of their needs and helped them thrive. The variety of elective courses is well above expectations, such as Spanish, Art, film making, fashion and design, etc. if your student does not wish to join the orchestra or band. The climate of the school benefits from clubs and sports which helps children transition from younger grades to high school activities. From a parent's perspective the teachers are all working well as a cohesive, professional team. The only area of improvement would be for the science teaching strategies, which is probably not the teachers but rather the district adopted and constraining curriculum. There are beautiful labs but experiments and hands on investigation is rare. Overall Martino is a very good school and the children are quite fortunate.
