Martinez, CA School District
Does anyone know anything about Martinez schools, and specifically the middle and high schools? We are nervous about the proximity to the oil refinery. We are considering moving over there, but its hard to get a sense of what a school is like. We have checked out greatschools reviews, but there is very little current feedback there. Where else can we get a sense of whether that will be a good place for our daughters? Do you have any personal experience? Help!
I realize this may not apply to your situation, but it may be helpful as a barometer of the district's attitude. The refinery was also a major concern; unfortunately, when we bought a house there we didn't realize just how close we were to it (it was hidden behind some hills and we didn't investigate the area enough.) If you decide to move there, I'd suggest looking into the Virginia Hills area off Alhambra, as that is considerably farther away from the refinery. We often could smell chemical odors coming from the refinery. To be fair, we did have some neighbors with older kids who liked the high school. Glad to be elsewhere
