We provide reading coaches and tutoring activities. Teachers take professional development to tackle these sort of issues and many are ESOL accredited. Also, a good proportion of our teachers have passed the FELE accreditation and are approved administrators, hence they are knowledgeable about accommodations and opportunities for teachers. We also work closely and an on weekly basis with the counselors,
I'm a student here, and the environment is incredible, the teachers and staff are dedicated. Teachers and students are a lot closer than in normal schools offering a more personal learning experience which makes it easier for any student to do good in school. I'm enjoying my time in this school.
My daughter just transferred from a private school and the academic standards are very high. When you walk around the school you get a sense of high energy and love of school from its students. The curriculum is tilted towards the science, my daughter has 3 science classes this year. So far, she likes it... so I like it.
I had the worst expirience with the principal and staff at MAST. My child was suffering and being bullied daily at this school. We complained to the school and nothing was done. I would not recommend this school.
I detest this school. The entire educational system is horrible. I never learned anything in this school. Unfortunately, I am not struggling in college. I definitely regret the decisions my parents made, they ruined my high school experience. I would not recommend this school at all.
I definitely detest this school. The teachers are absolutely horrible. To be quite honest, I learned nothing throughout high school.
I love this school and would recommend it to any hardworking student. Also remember GO MAKOS!
Why are so m any of the reviews written in October 2009? They seemed all written by the same person. Even the use of caps and quick one-two line reviews. Who wrote them?
Great school. Unfortunately not for the adjacent communities such as Key Biscayne or Brickell. Ver few people know MAST, although located in Key Biscayne, is not the public high school for Key Biscayne residents. For whatever reason, Key Biscayne residents are still asked to attend Coral Gables Senior High School, a mediocre - "C-" rated school" located 11 miles away from their community..
It fully prepared me to enter college. I am in my first semester at UCF and I find that most of my classes are with uppper classmen. The teachers and staff at MAST Academy are fully committed to the students and want nothing more than for them to succeed. This dedication and devotion to excellence is why I'm proud to say I attended MAST.
it is by far the best high school in the country. the teachers and staff are just amazing people. the atmosphere is fun and easy to learn in. MAST is number one.
MAST Academy is a great high school that prepares students to get ready for college from their first day in school. We have three kids, our oldest graduated last year from Mast and doing really good in college. The other two are attending the same school and we only can say really good things about the faculty, the staff and the kids.
Small, safe school. Motivated faculty, staff and student body. Great, scenic location. Lots of technology! Swimming and kayaking for PE? Lunch on the patio by the bay. MAST Blast, lock-in, walking field trips! No uniforms. Really cool teachers. Smart and talented students. Tons of scholarship $$ for graduates. Yeah, it's worth the sacrifice.
I am a mentor to several students and I am impressed with the quality of the students who I have worked with from MAST
MAST is a wonderful, different highschool with more to offer than the state budget allows. A little extra money could go a long way
An amazing school, with many unique qualities. Physical Education offers a wide variety of sports while the classes offered are also a very large selection. Clubs offered range from National Honors Society all the way to salsa club. Great teachers, intelligent students, and just over all an amazing school.
This school promotes a great standard of education. Some of my peers have graudated from this school and have excelled in their respective fields of study due to the initial educational foundation set by this school.
I love Mast Academy because of the care and concern about every student getting a better education and that every child could go to college if it is what they want with working hard and setting goals.
MAST is a jewel. The model should be followed across the nation. Unique classes, small school size and 100% graduation rates are just some of the 'yeah I'm tooting my own horn!' toots. MAST rocks in a district that struggles in many areas.
