Medical Academy For Science And Technology (M.A.S.T.) @ Homestead
Develops honesty: Neutral

The principal, Lisa Noffo, is someone who is very good at presenting a false image while simultaneously working against you. That school will never be the best it can be as long as she's at the helm. She sees the students as commodities to enhance her own image, but she doesn't care a thing about them. I overheard a conversation where she literally talked about bringing students in for bodies and then dumping those she considered less than acceptable to make sure that her numbers stayed high. This is not a woman that you want to have power over your children. The teachers do the best they can, but with a principal like that dragging them down, this school will never gain the kind of reputation that it could have. She is the absolute worst thing about that school.

My agency partners with this school and I've never seen brighter students. We deal with many schools and this one is one of if not the best in Miami. Kudos MAST.

The post about the AP World History Teacher is 2 years old. That teacher is no longer teaching at MAST @ Homestead. Opened for only 4 years, the school is in the top 15 in test scores across all subjects.

Mast @ homestead is an okay school, academics wise it's perfect, but when it comes to actually caring about the student as a person rather than a number they fail. I'm a student and I feel looked down upon by the office and administration. The principal is never around and doesn't show up at school events unless a picture is taken. But if you want an academically thriving school this is for you.

MAST Medical is a great school for any hardworking student. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers are outstanding. They all truly care about the students and it shows in their effort to make us better. This school, aside from academics, has plenty of activities including dances and spirit weeks to promote school spirit. MAST Medical is the complete package for any student that is looking to be academically challenged and spirited at the same time. I'd definitely recommend this school!

Excellent school and curriculum except AP World History. Teacher is a bit disorganized and has major chip on shoulder. Avoid at all costs. Exceptional principal and staff who truly care about their students. Just stay away from AP World History. Work is excessive and teacher comes across as a bit flustered. Not a teacher to cross or complain about.
