Students in Martinez are served by the Martinez Unified School District, which has four elementary schools, two middle schools and three high schools. Parochial schools are also in reach for those looking for an alternative to public education. New Vistas Christian School and Saint Catherine of Siena School, among others, are located in and around Martinez. Students seeking higher education are in luck, too, as Martinez is near Diablo Valley College and John F. Kennedy University.

Unique to Martinez Unified School District is the adult learning center, Martinez Adult Education (MAE). MAE first offered evening classes to community adults in 1919 at the local high school, and by 1925, such courses were offered by the facility as stenography, typing, auto mechanics and American citizenship. In 1978, MAE settled into its current location at 600 F St. in Martinez on the site of Montecito Elementary School. For over 90 years, MAE has been a vital puzzle piece and continues to offer affordable education, training and apprenticeship programs to Martinez adults totaling 16,000 students annually.
