We have 3 kids... 2 still attending The Masters Academy... 1 graduated from The Masters and is currently attending American Heritage. The Masters Academy is a great school... Small enough that they pay close attention, yet big enough to prepare my graduate for American Heritage... Top in the COUNTRY! The school has never been better managed then it is today! Mrs. Galasso is a great principal! The Disla Family

Wow, Great school! My 3 kids have been there since 5k. My oldest graduated 2 years ago from TMA & my other 2 are in elementary there. All "A" students. Our only concern was how would they do in high school. I'm happy to report that my oldest is still getting straight A's & currently attending Arch Bishop. I would recommend this school to others. Great principle, great teachers & small classrooms. Lots of personal attention & my kids have the grades to prove it. Take it from a parent that has been at TMA for 11 years & has 2 kids attending & 1 who graduated. This is the best school in the area! I just went to the state of the school address, its confirmed if all goes well with the City they will be building a high school. (hoping to be completed within 2 years). P. Sevigny Father of 3 :)

Don't waste your money! The elementary and middle school students are in portables. The school is located in a cow pasture that smells like manure. If they have to go to the main building for chapel or a class they have to wear ponchos otherwise they get wet. They don't have a gym, so the kids get exposed to the Florida sun. Technology is behind at this school, the computer room just upgraded to Windows XP from Windows 2007 that they used last year. The Principal is not easily accessible. There are kids in 5th grade who can barely read. Kids would be much better off in public school where the facilities and teachers are much better. Don't waste your money or your kid's time.

Posted today Report it When confronted with the bullying of our daughter by another student, the Dean stated that he could not issue a punishment, and suggested that if our family did not feel safe at the school that we take our children out! So our straight-A child, Member or the National Education Honors Society, School Choir, is a bullied girl, and we are told to remove her and her brother from the school. We had also paid thousands of dollars for this treatment. Wow! Not all of the teachers are deficient, so fell free to contact me anytime to discuss the school and eave a message at (954) 632-5692 (Tom Lanigan). I will return your call. Submitted by a parent

This school has been wonderful to my kids since 2k. It is a no nonsense type of school, but I feel that this teaches them responsibility and structure. They are very good at teaching Christian values and the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. The new principal is tough, but works very hard for the school and the kids... I don t know how good it is academically for the older grade levels because my oldest is now in 4k and we are moving away. I wanted to say thanks to TMA and everyone there who have been super nice and welcoming!

This is not for everyone .....if your child is new to schools do not send them there as they will not spend the time with them to show them the way.... 2 k ask to much of the children they expect them to be prim and proper at all times.... No room to be a kid! The principal has no idea what she is doing and has no idea how to talk to parents! Also way to many kids in the class rooms! No wonder they can't controll them or Handel them! I would not recommend this school unless your child is perfect!!!

The school is good for elementary because of the dedicated teaching staff. The middle school however is so so. Also, they have promised to build a new addition to the school since like 10 years ago and never have.

I've had my daughter in the school since 1999. The faculty is the best and the classes are small. The only 2 negative issues I have is they promised for the longest time that they will build a high school but no results and I also believe the security should be a little better, because even though they have a security guard walking the grounds, he can't be in 2 places at one time and anyone can walk into the building or the portables unannounced. Other than that I will highly recommend the school for thier academics.

I can't speak highly of this school enough. It is the best place to have your children attend because truly, their concern is your children! A very, very, loving environment where they actually do care. High on safety, academics, spirituality and all around. I have my daughter in this school. I am also a teacher in this school. I have worked all over Dade and Broward county and have never felt utopia.it is actually a little piece of heaven. We love it!

Great school. Excellent PK program. The environment is very nurturing and caring. I highly recommend this school to anyone. My child attended the PK-4 program and was ahead of most children when he entered the public school Kinder program. We would have kept him at this school had it not been for our moving away from Broward County. We are hoping to find another private school in Dade County like this one.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
