Martin County Schools Reviews

Martin County Schools is in a small community. The Board of Education is made up of older people that do not understand what school age people go through. Many rules and regulations are made that do not reflect the school environment correctly. Younger people need to be added to the board to better understand the situation of the students. There is also little funding to provide to schools for arts programs or classroom supplies. Basically all funding is generated directly from school organizations but the county office tries to stop groups from having multiple fundraisers. Resources need to be received and board members brought in to create a better functionality within the individual schools.

My experience with Riverside was great! I loved the student-teacher connection and how the staff and counselors genuinely cared. Although my experience was wonderful, I would like to see the school welcome more clubs like chorus and dance into the school for the more creative students.
I have lived in Martin County all of my life. So I attended school in Martin County starting from 1st grade all the way through graduation. My overall experience as a student in the Martin County School system was a very pleasant one. The teachers were pretty amazing, they were easy to talk to and you could tell that they really did love to teach. I say that because people can normally tell if someone does or does not like their job because it ultimately affects their attitude on the job. Luckily for me I was blessed with teachers who loved their job and really did want to make a difference.
