I went here for a while sophomore year. Old, sketchy school. If you're looking for diversity or decent people this is not the place to find them. Anyone coming to this school had better be white and have known everyone there since 1st grade or you will be treated rudely as I was, the entire school is one giant, small minded clique. The school is so small that half the students in one class are also in your next, so if you don't like them, tough luck!

Martin County West high school is a public school that allows any student to get the same education as the next. This school is full of highly trained professionals who are willing to help students achieve great things and want to be there to give them the boost they need to strive. Martin County West is known for excelling not only on their home fields and courts in sports, but also for pushing the limits in their test scores. MCW is overall an amzing school that has given me the knowledge and the life lessons that I will carry with me throughout my life.
Overall, sorta beat up, sketchy, and has been known to have many 'incidents'. There is a startling amount of substance abuse by students under the surface.
