My years as a former Martin Weiss student has showed me the how much the faculty and staff want the best education for their students.Their after school programs like math club help the children from the community have better chances in their future. Each and every teacher educates the children to meet high expectations in life.The athletic activities lave our children healthy and in good shape.PTA is a very importent part of the school.I recommend this school for your children.In doing so we are making the world a better place.
