This is a fair warning. Do NOT take your children here. I graduated 3 years ago and I hated it and still hate it. The teachers think they are the best and even yell and scream profanities at the students. Never in my life have I ever seen a teacher yell at a student that way. Whats more, the principal only cares about the money and doesn't help the parents when they are concerned with their children. My brother now goes here and he is always telling me how horrible it is. Because of this school, my brother no longer feels the same inspiration that he has before to continue studying and continue his education. Because of this school, he no longer wants to go to college. Please, please, please DO NOT send you children here. Send them somewhere much more caring and passionate.
I graduated from this school about 5 years ago, and remember what horrible experiences I encountered at this place. Now I have my sister in this school and she is suffering from panic attacks because of how much work is given to her. This school is horrible...has no good qualitites. Please do not send your children here. The principal and administration are rude and do not care for your child. All they care about is the money. My poor sister doesn't even have time to eat at school because of how crowded it is. This is ridiculous. This school should be closed or put under new administration.
Warning: Do not send your kids to this school. The administration is comprised of bullies who would rather scream at and insult concerned parents instead of answering their questions and addressing their concerns. What's more, my son went from being a top student at his elementary school to being completely unmotivated and apathetic in regards to education and school. If you are thinking of sending your child here and would like to hear how they treat a parent with legitimate concerns I would be more than happy to provide you with a recording of experience with the principle of the school and it's administrators.
Mater has like every other school it's bad qualities, like over population, pointless discipline (at times), and favoritism. But people should stop moaning about how horrible it is, because its as good as it gets in this town. And in all honesty it's certainly not the best school in the world or the U.S. but it's the best school in the city, seriously have you seen some of the other schools? What I like about Mater is that a lot of people have one common goal: getting into a good school and there is a competitive edge about everything which makes you want to try to be a better. Being top ten percent is an honor and people don't go around calling you a nerd or whatnot, they congratulate you. All in all it's a decent school, it gets the job done. Nobody should expect them to be perfect.
This is a for-profit school, meaning the money the get from the district they keep it in their pockets and they do not buy textbooks for students and place 45-50 students per teacher. THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE.
Im a freshmen at this school and i have been here since 6th grade. This school has both good and bad qualities. The good qualities are that they have very good discipline,and safety. There are security cameras everywhere and youll always find a security officer around. There are some teachers who go to amazing lengths to make kids understand and pass the subject. Personally i have always passed my classes with good grades. Also, everyones friends with each other. Now, onto the bad... the school lunch they serve is horrible. Mostly its either overcooked or undercooked. Some teacher show favoritism towards other students. Some teachers dont know where the heck theyre standing, and no matter how many complaints the office gets, they still dont get fired. The school worries about the silliest details on earth like having blue nail polish or boys having their hair too long(i dont mean that long, imagine the old Justin Bieber.) The classes are too crowded and the teachers spend have of the class telling the kids to be quiet. They dont have too many fun electives, like home ec. When the students are in high school, the staff doesnt care any more and lets them do whatever they want.
I'm a junior at Mater Academy and I would say that the school is decent in some cases, but they worry about things that don't have to do with education. I've seen people go to CSI and get detentions because they have a white line on their shoes or don't have the school's name on their sweater. Honestly, I think it's dumb for the school to be worrying so much about specific things we're wearing and not worrying about the education we're getting. A few teachers don't know what they're doing or aren't doing their jobs right. The food isn't great because they leave it cold or don't cook it right, and it's also too expensive. Sure the school's an 'A' school and give the impression that it's a great school, but in reality they are very disorganized and have a distorted discipline. Luckily, most of the people there are friendly.
