I do think the community is great and I was mostly happy with the kids, teachers and parents my kids were surrounded with. My only complaint is that the principal does not communicate with parents when there are situations with the kids.
I do believe there are many teachers who are great and really work well with the kids, but some need to retire. There are two teachers who are uncredentialed and the principal does not seem to care even when parents raised doubts.
This school and the program that it embraces, Workshop Way, are both an amazing asset to any child. The school and its community coupled with its core beliefs and fundamentals provide each and every student with an atmosphere for not only excelling in academics but in skills for life! I highly recommend this school to any parent interested in a quality educational foundation for their children!
I've had my kids at St Martins for 7 years now, and I've seen huge improvement in curriculum and school leadership over the past 3 years. As a parent, being involved in the school is very important. St Martins provides many areas of parental involvement. Those parents complaining about lax academic standards at St Martins need to involve themselves more to see what really is going on, which is excellent teaching and students graduating with top testing marks- to get into high schools of their choice with honors! I love this school as do my children (7th grade and 2nd grade) I would highly recommend it for those interested in attentive teachers and a small but involved school community.
