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.
I loved being in MCSD. I attended K-12 here and it has always had a high standard for education and involvement. The teachers love what they do, and that translates to the quality of education the students get. The amount of opportunities presented to students and families in the school district make it one of the best. The emphasis on arts, as well as sports, allow students to be well rounded outside the classroom as well as in it. The care that school administrators put into their schools and district is unparalleled anywhere else in the state. Thanks MCSD.
