11 Parent Reviews for Martinez Elementary School

I am not sure how to begin other than expressing my displeasure of the seemingly lack of academics at this facility. The staff is more concerned at becoming a Franklin Covey school than focusing on what is critical: reading and writing! My child has been doing academics far beyond what her grade is currently ...  Read more

Martinez is an excellent school. It provides before and after school clubs in music, choirs, physical education, art, karate, band, and academics.

We moved to this school at the start of the year. Our experience has been excellent so far - the teachers are phenomenal, the principal seems to have a great handle on things and there is a team feeling in this school that is just "wow". Our kids were both behind in math and writing when we started here ...  Read more

Please take care of the school grounds! Let me start by saying that I don't have any children that go to this school and I don't work at the school, but I do live in the neighborhood right across from the school and I do wish that the Principal took more pride in the school by keeping up the grounds ...  Read more

Fantastic school. I can't say enough good things about it. PTO is very involved. This is a wonderful school and I feel very safe having my children there.

What a phenomenal place to teach! The principal is wonderful with students, parents, and staff, and very knowledgeable about curriculum. The teaching teams are learning to work together to meet grade level standards and provide interesting lessons to all students. WOW!

My son just started at Martinez so far I am not impressed the physical layout. They have open classrooms. The drop off and pick up is a compleat mess. I hope the teaches make up for it...

Martinez is one of the best elementary schools in D11. The teachers are great and test scores are well above average. Level of parental involvment in the PTA/PTO could be improved. Seems to be a lack of recruitment on the part of school officials. School could improve upon communication with parents ...  Read more
