    Martin Van Buren High School has many outstanding experienced teachers. The A.P's that was left behind after the other principal was made to retire are still running the school as if she never left. The A.P. of safety needs to go because to many incidents continues to occur, marijuana smoking on the staircase down from Mr. Sochet's office is going on everyday. Parents express concerns of many safety issues that continues to be swept under the carpet. Teacher was pushed out of her classroom while students fight. Safety officers took their time arriving to the scene. Kids are still hanging out in the hallways. One program that is missing is Band. Mr. Sochet feels that having a band is too noisy!!

    Kids are being suspended for wearing a hat or not showing up for detention, mainly special ed students.

    The A.P. of English is not licensed in English. The A.P's do not respect the teachers and when you have any adminstration working as a team with the teachers improvement with students grades and behavior can change.

    Parent involvement plays a key role in kids education. Mr. Sochet has not demonstrated in any way that he is for parent involvement.
