This school is beyond amazing, I've went to that school from 3rd through 8th grade, the staff members are absolutely kind & make you feel comfortable, they also know how to teach & have good discipline. The principle interacts very well with the kids & tries her best to make the school a better learning environment, not that it needs to be improved because its already great
Too much students per class; they are not optional classes, no music, no drama, not science laboratory, there are no lockers to dress, and the students have to go all over the school with the handbags of the books, the director has no leadership.
The teachers are strict but fun. As long as you don't anger them. But even when they're angry they aren't very tough. They make learning fun and understandable. This helps many students. The faculty is nice and hard working. I've been in Mater Gardens since 08-09 (6th grade) It's a really fun school compared to my last one, which was really fun too. This school is a great learning environment and thinks 24/7 about the students. I would know since my aunt is the vice principal, my cousin is a student, and my other cousin is a teacher. Just because they are my family doesn't boost my relationship with ANY of the staff. So my opinion is un-influenced. The teachers are also very creative. The school is peaceful and has a field large enough to hold the whole school population and more (a little over 1-2 thousand)
I have been in mater gardens 'home of the stingrays' since 4th grade and now i have been apart of this school all the way thruogh the 7th grade that should tell you evrything. this school has the best teachers ,principal and faculty i have ever seen . mater gardens deserves a 100% at evrything. 'Go rays!!'
