I loved my time at Clark Advanced Learning Center (a Martin County School). The small school environment and personal attention from teachers and staff help promote an atmosphere that makes learning fun! The fact that Clark is located on the campus of Indian River State College makes it easy to take dual enrollment classes, and many of the Clark students graduate from high school with their AA degree. Clark has many clubs to choose from, and students can participate in intramural sports at other Martin County high schools. Every student is involved in an internship program during their Senior year which enables the student to gain essential job experience in fields that match his or her academic and personal interests. Clark is an amazing school, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to attend.

Excellent school district! Not only are the staff members very nice, I feel safe as a student. When I have struggled with subjects, I have always found it easy to go to one of my teachers as they are eager to help. The school district itself could use some work. Yes, I understand they want to "process monitor" students, but they should do it at a time that is more convenient to the students instead of doing it when students return from break, and have forgotten the subject completely.
If you are a minimalist, who just wants a superb education, go here. The schools are very good. If you're just interested in getting into good schools then you should definitely check out Martin County.
However, with that being said, many of the extras that other disticts have as pluses are certainly minuses here. First, the administration is absolutely clueless on what is good for the students. They feel as disconnected for the student body as the French royalty was from peasants before the French Revolution. This is across the board on things like sports, punishment, spending, etc. The culture around here is also not spectacular as with nothing to do man students either get high and drunk to pass the time until they can leave. I would love to more in depth and give examples but unfortunately I have a 1K character limit.
