Low Student-To-Teacher Ratio
Martinsville ISD has a district-wide student-to-teacher ratio of 12 to 1. This enables our students to have more one-on-one instruction with our teachers and helps our students achieve their full potential.
95% Enrollment in Career and Technical Education in Grades 7-12
Martinsville ISD has a diverse set of classroom offerings in career and technical education (CTE) with multiple programs in agriculture mechanics, animal science, floriculture, and family and consumer sciences. Our students have the opportunity to explore career opportunities in over 8,000 square feet of shop space or in our newly renovated culinary kitchen. Our students are able to learn job usable skills and trades with knowledgable faculty leading them to be successful.
1:1 Computers/Hotspots, State-of-the-Art Classroom Technology, and Network Infrastructure
Martinsville ISD has made a concerted effort to be ahead of the curve with regards to putting technology in students' and teachers' hands to facilitate learning in a digital environment. Each child from PK-12 is issued a computer or tablet as well as a content filtered mobile hotspot to access our learning platforms from home. Each of our classrooms is equipped with flat-panel touch displays, which support student collaboration and sharing on the screen. Our classrooms also feature amplified sound to promote clear communication and camera technology to record lessons for remote instruction and remediation. Our network infrastructure exceeds standards for bandwidth per student and performs well to allow our students access to the information they need in the most efficient manner possible.
Commitment to Safety
Martinsville ISD takes the safety of our faculty, staff, students, and community as one of our greatest responsibilities. As such, the Martinsville ISD Police Department takes proactive, multifaceted measures to ensure the safety of the campus property and its occupants both from physical security to cybersecurity.
Martinsville ISD has a number of extra-curricular opportunities for our students, which reach a diverse student population. These include student organizations, interscholastic contests, community events and more. We have student organizations that include Student Council, Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), National Honor Society (NHS), Christians in Action (CIA), and others. Interscholastic contests include FFA and FCCLA regional, state and national events, interscholatic academic and athletic contests, which include UIL academics, UIL One Act Play, basketball, baseball, softball, track and field, cross country, golf, and tennis. Community events include students competing in livestock shows across the state of Texas, as well as our much beloved Fall Festival, where students of all ages celebrate with the community, play games, win prizes, and eat their fill of carnival food.
