this brand-new school has beautiful facilities. the ratio of staff to children is small, so the administration and other teachers can know many students individually. the atmosphere is happy and clean. this school has been so understanding of my child's needs. they are willing to let him work a grade level ahead in the subjects where he needs more challenge, and they work with him when his maturity still lags behind his academic skills a little. caring staff. i love the FREE MUSIC CLASSES, with instruments provided! if i had to think of one area of improvement, i would like some foreign language instruction. but, hey, MASSA is offering more benefits each year, so they will probably have this option available soon, also.
I'm very happy with this school because they have excellent academic level. They have a lot of activities after school. We have a lot of happyness to talk to the principal, teachers, and the secretary. I also like that they are whering uniforms and that they have alot of discipline. I also like it because the classes are small and the teacher pay more attention to the students. I would like that the school would have middle school and high school. So that the students can keep with the same system academe.
Before we moved to the USA finding a school was an issue (school in UK starts a year earlier). Pennsylvania turned out to be a disaster, our son, who could read, write and do math, was put into KG. We found a great parochial school where he excelled. The move to Tucson was as much a worry. We needn't have worried. He has been attending MASSA since its' inception. He loves school, We have never had to convince him to go. He enjoys the challenging curriculum. His teachers are very aware of the class and will advance the level as needed. His teacher is an excellent communicator, ensuring that we are always aware of the good and the bad. We have signed him up for next year and hope that MASSA follows its' sister school and adds grades up to 12th.
My son joined The Math and Science Success Academy in December 2008. As a parent, I have always valued my son's teachers and accredited much of his success as a student not only to him, but to the school environment as well. My son was delighted when he recieved an award from his teacher for his participation in class. As a former AmeriCorps member I have had the opportunity to help out at many schools. Our family believes that everyone must work together for our children to be successful. I enjoy contributing to the community and my son's school on a daily basis. I am always welcomed and accepted by MASSA as a parent volunteer. My son has always been a good student and I look forward to his ongoing academic success!
I am completely satisfied with how well teachers teach and how concerned they are with your child's education. They teach their math 1 grade ahead. I recently moved to Tucson from Pennsylvania and my 5th grader struggled since second grade in math. She said with the small class size and the way the teacher is willing to provide extra help if needed and teach them properly she is now getting straight 'A's' and that's includes 6th grade math. My second daughter started out in kindergarten but due to her knowledge from pre-school they promoted her to 1st grade and she is getting all 'A's' and 'B's' and she is doing 2ND GRADE MATH. They provide FREE after school tutoring from 3-3:30 pm. They also have an after school program from 3:30 to I believe 5 pm for only $150 a semester, hundreds less than you would pay a day-care or sitter.
