This school doesn't service 4th grade. Its an ok school. The current principal needs to be concerned less with how the community sees him, as a good ole boy, and more about the discipline issues he is not taking care of in the school.
I was not impressed with the school from the first day. There was too much emphasis on non-academic classes, they stressed the "great band" far too much for my comfort. The teachers are good, but the school doesn't offer more than one advanced class or any more electives than band or chorus.
My daughter was in 5th grade last year (07). Her teachers kept us well informed, sent us weekly reports, and challenged her. Both of her teachers have websites with their lesson plans, which helps a lot. The 5th graders have an assignment journal. Sometimes we bounced it off the lesson plans and found that she was missing an assignment or two. The teachers answer their email in a timely manner. Expect a lot of homework. My only complaint would be that the chorus was frustrating for my daughter and her friends. She said that the majority of the kids did not take the class seriously. I could tell during their performances. She is looking forward to sixth grade.
I loved Edgar Martin it was a great school.The teachers and staff were amazing and I loved my 3 years there.I would go back!Thank you Edgar Martin for making me a better student and an all around better kid!
