Martinez Unified


The Martinez Unified school district in California serves 8 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 1 middle school, 2 high schools, and 1 alternative school. The district's schools exhibit a wide range of academic performance, with some standout institutions like Morello Park Elementary and John Swett Elementary consistently ranking among the top schools in the state, while others, such as Vicente Martinez High, struggle with high dropout rates and chronic absenteeism.

The district's high-performing schools, like Alhambra Senior High, boast impressive graduation rates, low dropout rates, and strong academic proficiency in English Language Arts and Mathematics. In contrast, some schools, particularly the alternative and certain elementary institutions, face challenges with high chronic absenteeism rates, which can contribute to wider achievement gaps. The varying free/reduced lunch rates across the district also suggest socioeconomic disparities that may impact student outcomes.
