I would like to say this school has been a welcome addition to our area. I have heard so many people talking and bragging about how well their children are doing which made me interested in checking it out. This year my child is doing great. He is enjoying all the teachers and has made some friends who are as academically driven as he is. Thank you to everyone who makes this school so great!
I am a former massa student and i loved it there. Massa is a an excellent school and more advanced than most schools. Massa helped me to be where I am at and now that im in high school i am more advanced than other students. Massa taught us discipline and to be respectful, responsible, and reliable. Also the teachers were great in helping me with what I needed nd didn't understand. I am very grateful that I went to Massa. - Karyme Colores and Jasmine Oldham
The staff are friendly and helpful and the school has an open door policy. They always get right back to you and resolve any matter in a quick manner. Curriculum is highly acceptable and the children do well with it. Parents seem to be fairly involved with volunteering and knowing what's going on with their children in the classroom. I will say however, currently there is 425 students and they are crammed in there. I wish there were more space for them in the classroom and outside to play.
We didn't know what we were going to do when my son finished the 5th grade at a public school. As I looked into Open Enrollment at TUSD I felt very anxious for him. We passed MASSA every week and knew one of the students attending, so we decided to take a tour of the school. It was the best decision we made! The Dean of Students gave a tour and answered all of our questions. The reviews I read online showed that this school took education seriously and was not just another charter school. My sons (3rd grade and 6th grade) are almost finish with their first year at MASSA and we couldn't be happier. Both boys have excellent teachers that are true professionals and education is their priority. The setting is small and the students receive additional attention. MASSA website is helpful and the teachers list homework assignments every afternoon. The teachers and administration staff have an open door policy and met with us when my son had difficulties with the material or anything else that came up. They support parent involvement and keep us in the loop. Bonus, the students get along and are enjoying their time as children.
My brother attends the school and is incredibly successful in all of his studies. The staff is always very helpful and polite. This school is a wonderful school for anyone trying to advance their child's learning.
It is an awesome school, kids have an early exposure to sciences and math concepts.
Great school with a very big focus on preparing children for bright futures, My son was struggling at his previous school, and now he is reading, writing, and doing math. I am very happy that I changed my sons school, and I am delighted with the results.
MASSA has been a wonderful addition to south Tucson. Parents appreciate the academics offered and the quality of the staff. The administration is always friendly and available. My children enjoy going to school and learning.
I am so happy with MASSA, I've seen both my boys grow tremendously. I'm grateful that I was given the opportunity to enroll my boys and I'm excited to see my first grader doing so well after struggling so much at the other school. Mrs. Hunt and Mrs Rodriquez are amazing and make the school run smoothly.
This school is as great as ever, the faculty and staff is caring and always available. I have been with this school for two years and they have smoothed any bumps on the road that have come their way. I love that they are expanding to middle school with 7th grade this year because there are not many good school options on this side of town. Though at first nervous with the middle school on campus things are just as great and even better year after year. Thanks Mrs. Hunts and Mrs. Rodriquez for all your hard work! Parent Karla Aguilar
WOW! I am very glad I did the change my daughter is been in this school for two weeks and I can see a huge difference already! The school staff is genuinely and caring, I want to thank Mrs. Hunt for the warmth welcome and Mrs. Rodriguez for the leadership. Parent : Veronica A. Ramos
MASSA is a school worthy of recognition. From the annual Science fair to the everyday this school is concerned about its students. My son has been at MASSA for 3 years now and each year is better than the last. He actually enjoys school now, when before MASSA he did not. I offered to let him stay home a few weeks ago because he wasn't feel his best and he actually told me he wanted to go to school!!!! This school is very much needed on the Southside of town!
My son has gone to MASSA since day one. It is a wonderful school with a caring staff. It is not often that you find staff members in public schools that genuinely care about the success of their students. It is a pleasure to send my son to MASSA and he loves it too.
The staff is great. The teachers are young, energetic and caring. My child has been attending for 2 years. There was a problem with bullying, which was taken care of immediately when brought to the attention of the staff. We will be leaving the school at the end of the year because my child is going to full time GATE. Massa did its very best to accommodate our needs but we have stretched them beyond their capability. We will be sad to leave.
Programs are wonderful, safe environment. I am very pleased With Math and Science Success Academy, I have been so impressed With the curriculum, teachers and over all administration, I feel fortunate that My three children are attending a top notch school and receiving exceptional education. I want to Thank Ms. Rodriguez and Mrs. Hunt for their leadership, dedication and hard work, its outstanding. Parent: Ruth Aguirre
I'm a fourth grade student and I love MASSA. My teacher is great and knows alot of information. I am learning to play guitar and it's awesome. My principal helps me when I have questions. School is important to me. When I grow up I want to be a police officer. GO MASSA LIONS!
Math and writing standards in today's classroom's are becoming more and more clear cut and subjective. One can see why it can be a challenge to figure out exactly what you want your students to accomplish throughout the school year. Fortunately, my children were blessed with the opportunity to attend MASSA. This school goes above and beyond to make sure that my kids receive the proper instruction. MASSA excels in all levels and the staff and parent involvement is so strong. I feel at ease knowing my kids are taught to strive for their best. Erica Valenzuela..mother
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for giving my daughters the opportunity to attend MASSA this school year. I look forward to a great year and best education as well. I am very excited and know my daughters are in good hands. Martha P. Lopez, Mother
This is our first year as a part of the MASSA family. My son struggles with ADHD and we are doing everything we can for him. I could not imagine being at any other school & having to work through this. The staff @ MASSA & his teacher are amazing! They have helped us, comforted us, & guided us along the path we are on. In addition to this the quality of education & the well-roundness of the curriculum are superb.
The MAth and Science Success Academy strives to offer students from all backgrounds an opportunity to be successful in an advanced curriculum. After school homework help and tutoring is available to all students free of charge. MASSA offers a traditional classroom setting with small class sizes and highly qualified teachers.
