Brother Martin raises the bar for high schools in New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. The community of students, teachers, alumni, and family members all have a special bond. Also, graduates have gone to almost every college in the US.

Being a young man in the New Orleans area, there are many great private and public high schools you can send your son to. I am currently a freshman at Brother Martin, and I will tell you, there is a place for everyone here. I started here as a freshman, and I started out being shy because I knew no one, but on that first day an amazing kid came up to me and offered his friendship. I would say that this was my point of saying, this is where I belong. Brother Martin offers a multitude of leadership, academic, and athletic oppourunities for your son. We have nationally acclaimed academic games teams, state champion wrestler, and the best band in the city. If your child is a great muscician, this is the school for him. The two band instructors, Mr. Bailey and Mr. Caronna, are two amazing men who are great teachers. Now in your head if you are thinking I can not afford to send my son here do not worry, I myself am on the 'work-study' program and it is a great program that teaches responsibility. I am enjoying my year so far, and hope to have many more great years. Go 'Saders!

I am a student at Brother Martin and will be a freshmen in the fall and I believe that Brother Martin is one the best schools in the nation but there are some flaws to the school such as some of the students are very disrespectful to their peers, teachers,and other schools and 1 teacher in particular seems as if he doesn't care about teaching but instead semms to care about telling stories, watching youtube videos and just being upright irresponsible and immature. In my view point the school's admission process is very penatrable and it seems that the students that would make fine additions to the school are the applicants that are recieving rejection letters in place of the rude, homophobic, and unrly applicants. Brother Martin isn't all bad I just want the good stydents to be accepted and the students to leave.

BM is the best school and overall academically ready for student to become men. They truly encourages the boys to believe and be postive. Teachers are great! They care about your child and let you know what's going on with your child. They have one of the best parents/teachers conference I have ever been to and not only that it is every month so you are up to date with your child's grades and get to talk to the teachers. I truly believe BM makes the students to become successful in life. This is the school for your son if you want your son to become successful and well educated.

Brother Martin High school is perhaps the finest example of Catholic Education in the nation, and the accreditations, achievements, and history of the school back that statement up. Brother Martin is a paramount figure of education in New Orleans, and is one of the highest-rated schools in the nation.

When I first attended BM as a brand new freshman, I hated it for the first two months to be honest. I longed to go back to my old elementary school where things were familiar, but couldn't. As time wore on, I began to love BM. As a graduate of the class of 2002, BM is like a second home to me that I will never forget. Now, I bleed Crimson and Gold and make every effort to attend games and be involved at the school. When my time ended there, my heart sank and still aches to this day that I will never again relive those days. Some of the bets memories I have are from that school and the friends that I made there and still hang out with today. A famous BM saying goes, 'You don't come here to make a living...you come here to make a life.' Brother Martin is an excellent school with great teachers, a fantastic athletic program, superb academics, and an atmosphere that is second to none. I highly recommend this school to anyone considering it, as your child will learn what it truly means to not only be a man, but extremely well-rounded.
