All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

Martinez is an excellent school. It provides before and after school clubs in music, choirs, physical education, art, karate, band, and academics. It has a lyrics to learn program, which uses music to help student remember important information in core subjects. Martinez has a top of the line stem lab providing cutting edge technology for student success in a highly technological market. Students at Martinez are taught leadership and to set goals, which are designed to make them independent and responsible learners. The school's approach is ahead of others in preparing students for a competitive life and work force.

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 (even so we came from a match/science/space focus school). The teachers at Martinez caught our kids up in no time :) One of the best decisions we made was to move to this school :)

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 a little better. It is over run by weeds and usually looks like it is way past due to be mowed. I know times are tight, but I see other schools around this area that are maintained to look clean and tidy, why not this one? It may be a great school, I don't know, but It is an eye sore from the street.

Excellent special education team! They work hard and truly care for our children. Unfortunately, we had to move last year, so my kids don't attend Martinez anymore. I wish I could have taken their SPED team with us! I have yet to encounter a SPED team that even comes close to comparing to their dedication. They are unmatched!

Excellent school, my daughter is in 4th grade and son in kindergarten. Very safe and pleased with standards to which they hold children, both in terms of behavior and curriculum. Principal was very receptive when we had a problem with another girl in my daughter's class and helped us come to an acceptable resolution for all. Drop off and pick up is MUCH better starting Fall 2010 when they added additional loop in back of school.

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 -- perhaps by implementing email and improving the school website to allow for better exchange of ideas and feedback. Parking and access to the school is in dire need of improvement.

My children moved to Martinez from a private school. I was very concerned about the move. The staff and children at Martinez welcomed my children and helped them through the first year. It was wonderful. I now have 3 children at Martinez and they love everything about it. There are a lot of activities for them to choose from and I always feel welcome to help in their classrooms or talk to the staff in the front office. We are very happy with Martinez Elementary and their staff.
