Welcome to Bishop Martin High School

Bishop Martin High School is located in Orange Walk Town, Belize. It was established on September 2, 2002 under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Belize. When it opened at that time with Mr. Rene Constanza as the Principal, BMHS had only about 60 students in first form. It moved to the present location on San Lorenzo Road in 2004. BMHS now has a population of 306 students, drawn from Orange Walk Town and surrounding villages.


Students in first and second form follow a very similar curriculum, while third and fourth formers follow different academic programs. While subjects offered at BMHS are very similar to subjects taught at other schools, there are electives unique to BMHS. First formers study Successful Student Strategies, for example, while sophomores were introduced this year to Financial Planning and Budgeting. What makes especially fourth year unique is the presentation of a portfolio as part of the requirements for graduation in a subject called Capstone.

Education at BMHS is also focussed on Catholic tradition and the calendar is full of activities connected to the Church's liturgical year. Students looking forward to a BMHS education can be sure mission education and values are deeply engraved in the BMHS system.

Student Life

Students have much to look forward to at BMHS. There is a plethora of activities to engage the student, as well as a unique way of involving parents through service hours. From participation in clubs to involvemnet in fund-raising activities, at BMHS education is rich and fulfilling. Students play a very active role in BMHS life, and can often be seen participating in the campus scene.
