Martin County School District Reviews

I graduated MCHS in 2015, from the dual enrollment program. I have to say that most of my teachers were less qualified than my current university professors. I had a financial investor for physics, a former middle school teacher for American history, the former head of quality control for Pratt and Whitney for Statistics and my Calculus I and II teacher was probably the most aggressive educator I have ever had, comical in her intensity, but effective, memorable and understood her subject as well as any professor I have ever had. The biggest downside of MCHS that I had, when I went to University of Florida, I felt that my professors were grossly under-qualified compared to my high school teachers!
Review Martin County School District
Over the course of 7 years, my various experiences as a student has lead me to voice that although it upholds the standards and rewards of many policies, it could be much improved, specifically in issuing more equal disbursements of assets to school organizations and the way in which district policies dictate the classroom environment. Being apart of many clubs I've noticed sports reap the highest endowment due to the recognition and reputation it receives, and yet many smaller clubs are struggling because not enough money is being applied. I also find the lack of opportunity classes could be providing due to the newly implemented regulations of class coursework jurisdiction. Teachers are being forced to limit their instruction, which only causes students to lose interest. It begins to feel like the grade is what is so important, not the actual information. If these two areas could be improved upon, the Martin County School System could really benefit.
My experience with the Martin County School District has been a bit of a wild ride, with plenty of highs and lows.
I have had a wide variety of teachers over the years, some have been incredible. My middle school teachers, specifically, always pushed their students to be there best. The teachers provided challenging work, and creative projects that engaged my classmates. However, upon arriving in high school, I was much less impressed. Many of my teachers seemed to be disconnected from their students, and didn't appear to take a personal interest in helping them succeed. They treated it as if teaching was simply a task, and not a way of helping the students learn and achieve bright futures.
Aside from that, I have been mostly very impressed with the education provided by the Martin County School District.
