I feel as though the Martins Ferry City School District is pretty satisfactory in both its staff and programs. The teachers are good at teaching their subject. The programs available are examples like The Staying Clean Club, The Tech Club, The Wilderness Explorer Club formally known as the Paranormal Club, to name a few. The punishments for breaking the rules are fair for the most part. The Martins Ferry handbook states all of the rules and regulations, for example, no holes above the knees, no bullying, no weapons on school property, etc. As today is my last day at Ferry Schools, I decided to leave a review for my home school, Martins Ferry, Home of the Purple Riders.
