What is Martin High?
A group of dusty-red buildings situated in a grove of maple and oak trees in northwestern Tennessee - this is Martin High. But there is more to Martin High than merely these empty buildings. There are students, filling its halls with laughter and the sound of slamming locker doors. There are the hours of classroom instruction, the central reason for the existence of the school. There are organizations, whose high ideals create better citizens for the world of tomorrow. There are faculty members, influencing our scholastic and moral development. And, above all, there is a spirit belonging to Martin High alone, a spirit which is felt in every area of Martin High life.
