MMS is an excellent school. This is my daughter's first year at Martin and first year in a public school. Mr. Blair has shown an unbelievable amount of leadership and support to this school. The faculty has shown a great deal of professionalism in the classroom as well as handling the discipline of the children. The parent participation is fantastic. I find Martin Middle School impressive. The children at this school are very friendly and welcomming to new students. I'm proud to be a part of MMS. Debbie Veach
I believe Martin is an excellent school. This is my childs first year at Martin and so far everything seems to be working out well for him. The teachers that I have met care about my childs education and progress in the school. The discipline and structure are needed is great. Children of this age need that to keep them on track and focused on goals in life. JMO.
Martin is not a good school. The faculty show no interest in the students or their grades. We have not been pleased with Martin at all. Most parents I have spoke with noticed a severe drop in grades when their child attended Martin. Around Selma this school is called Martin Military and I see why. Students are not permitted to talk..even their lunch time is spent in silence. Students must walk to the right of every hallway or face being wrote up and turned into the office. I think the students would do much better with a little leeway and a faculty that actually cares. Knowing what I know now, my youngest child will not be attending this school. We would rather pay for private school then our child being taught at Martin. Just my opinion and the majority of other parents also. JMO
