Disappointed! Read the April 27, 2014 NY Post report....scared? Is it fear? Don't know what to do?

Posted January 11, 2012

My son graduated from Martin Luther back in 2005 when Regents were offered as well as some AP exams and he was challenged but now with my daughter in the same school I realize that the educational standards are not what they were back then...No Regents and teachers who are not adequately trained and prepared to teach at the High School level. I am really disappointed with this school.

My child graduated from MLHS this June/2011. I had another child that graduated several years earlier. I was disappointed to see the student's were not given regents exams. They were not as academically competive as the public school student's. I noticed that many of the graduates were not considered for 4 year colleges unless they were exceptionally bright. In terms of safety, I felt my child was safe away from the gangs and public school drama but as for the guidance people and college counselors, I feel they could have done a better job.

When my daughter attended MLHS, the variety or classes offered were not on par w/what she could have found at a Catholic HS. I have since found out that there are a few charter elementary & public hs which do not tolerate misbehavior, like bullying. Whereas, my daughter and her friend had to endure it at a private school like Martin Luther. And one time in front of a teacher and her class, w/o a word being said by the teacher.

Martin Luther offers an excellent education in an advanced placement curriculum. Classes are small and the teachers truly care about helping the students to succeed. We are all here because we love what we do and we care about children, and it shows.

Because students are taught about the love of Christ that the world so desperately needs together with excellent academics.

Small school, great kids, awesome faculty!

I love Martin Luther because of the family atmosphere. People here go out of their way to help and support and encourage one another. Teachers offer extra help for students who need it, students mentor and encourage each other and the faculty works together to get the job done! Our Alumni support the school, in part because of the great education they earned here, in part because of the friendships and wonderful experiences they had here!

I graduated from MLHS and now I work there. Great environment to learn in and not get lost in the big crowd. Teachers and staff care and freely give of their time to help you succeed in life.

Although I did extremely well here academically, I learned much more than the official curriculum could ever teach. The lessons that i have cherished through the years are the values and the knowledge that perseverence pays off tremendously..

Our daughter graduated from MLHS. She liked that it was a small intimate setting and her father and I liked that it was a private Christian school in our neighborhood. Unfortunately, she did not get to experience the benefits of an expansive curriculum in a larger high school.

Our local High school was not an option. Gangs , metal detectors etc etc. When we stumbled upon Martin Luther and did our homework we found it to be one of the best kept secrets.Small school, small classes , talented staff and good results. It baffles me why its not alls first choice . Personalized attention and concern. 500 kids vs other shools at 2-4000 kids where your just a number.Great academics and extracurricula.Best bang for the buck.

As a grandparent I am proud to say my grandson graduated in 07. It was one of the best experiences of both our lives. And my grandaughter now attends with several of her grammar school friends. You just do not get a better education than at Martin Luther.

As an Alumni and current parent of a child at Martin Luther High School I can feel that this school is excellent. The athletic, drama and music programs are great. The faculty and staff are dedicated, caring, and involved with the students. Martin Luther is a family of where everyone works together to get a great Christian education.

This is my sons second year at MLHS. Coming from a small catholic school I was a little bit hesitant about enrolling him in a Lutheran school. Let me say I have not regretted anything. The school is small yet has all a parent can ask for as far as extracurricular activities, homework help before/after school. The curriculum is challenging and the instructors are very caring and devoted. ML surpasses any other high school catholic or otherwise in the immediate rgmvm area. You should go for a visit and check us out.

I went to MLHS and I liked the experience. Small classes and teachers were available. But during my Junior and Senior years, alot of the good teacher left. But I loved the school. It was a safe place to be.

Martin Luther H.S. offers a unique environment for its students. As a former student (second generation), I experienced four years filled with love, care and support from the faculty and staff. The amount of attention given to each and every student due to the small class size was invaluble. The school reaches beyond general studies to instill morals and values in its students, important tools vital to the success of our future generations. I highly recommend that you consider this school for your child.

This school has been the best thing that happened to my son. Their college prep curriculum and after school activities is outstanding. Martin Luther is worth every penny!
