    MLS Student

    The teachers at MLS always go above and beyond when it comes to my education. I feel comfortable with approaching my teachers with any questions, guaranteeing that I have no reason to struggle.

      MLS Student

      I like the individualized help I receive from the teachers and I made some great friends at Martin Luther.

        MLS Alumni

        I have been a fan of Martin Luther for many years, first as a student there and subsequently as an alumnus. Martin Luther provides an excellent small school alternative to the NYC public school system.
