This institution is the pinnacle of educational excellence. The teachers treat every student as there own,its not common to find teachers who care so much and genuinely want to see every student succeed.

Mt. Auburn International Academy is a great school. I have been a student at MAIA since I was in 4th grade. Maia prepares students for college and help them prepare for the real world. Maia isn't only a school its a family. We motivate and help each other out no matter what grade we're in.I encourage parents to send there school to maia. We are heavy on anti-bullying and students education. We have a student life program that allow students to express who they are or simply find who they want to be. This school gave me the opportunity to travel overseas to see new things and meet new people. I love my maia family!!!!! J.J

I have 2 children that attend this school. So far MOST of the teachers are awesome! they really try and help the students get a good education. My concern is the grading system 8 grade has test and exams 4 days a week and im sure that is pretty stressful for the children.I understand that it is a college prep school and they really are trying to prepare these children for college but at the same time my daughter which is in the 3rd grade has no life anymore because of the tremendous amount of homework. most of the time it is 100 math questions 3 other papers and then a study guide to study for the test and this is monday through friday! The problem is that most of the time the kids dont get to bed until 11 pm sometimes midnight due to studying! BUT a child needs a decent amount of rest to function properly. Craming homework on these kids to the point where they barely get rest is not in the best interest of a childs education. It only benefits the school to say " HEY LOOK SEND YOUR CHILD HERE WE ACTUALLY WORK AND TEACH!" which is great but what about the students and the proper amount of rest and sleep they need to function the next work day! My 3rd grader is really stressed out!

This school is awful. Many of the teachers are good and try their best, but the student's lack motivation and discipline. The entire grading system is based solely on test scores, which makes homework pointless in the student's eyes. Similarly, there are no consequences for not participating in class, so students tend to talk the entire time (distracting other students as well). The students are pretty much given the answers to the upcoming tests and then allowed to retake the test if they fail. So why try to study or even listen during class if you are just going to be spoon fed the answers on the retake? Also, the turnover rate at MAIA is so high that the staff cannot support the teachers in discipling the students. Physical fights and destruction of school property should be grounds for some kind of discipline, but MAIA lack the staff to give detention or in-school suspensions. Furthermore, the teachers are powerless because the students know there will be no consequences. I do not blame the teachers for leaving the school as soon as they can (often times in the middle of the semester). This school is not setting the students up for success. This school is just awful.

Both of my kids where lucky to have *Mrs. Wright (Kg), I don't know what grade she teaches now but request her SHE'S AN AWESOME 5 STAR TEACHER in every way. WE LOVE HER !!! They have about 5 more like her. *Mrs. Wright should be paid to instruct teachers on how to care, teach, commit & respect all students not just favorites. 1st. I left MAIA because it began 2 hours earlier than the years b4, I live too far (Colerain Twn.) I hated waking my children @ 5:45 to get ready for school. 2nd. I agree, Principle Mr.Butler is nice, caring & respectfull BUT... he lacks authority, he appers to be frightented of mean teachers & Mrs. Douglas, she's rude + known to bully & embarass kids. Making kids pay.50-$1.00 to wear non-uniform is greedy & if they didn't have $ she would say loudly, "Call ya mama" even to KG kids. I kindly spoke with her 2-3X's about her rudeness but she would just say "I'll call u Ms.D". I paid $ to save some kids from further embarrassment by her. Even teachers paid for 1 or 2 unfortunate kids that got pass her judgemental eyes. Yes, Mr. Butler allows Mrs. Douglas rude self to darn near run his school (not good), he honestly needs a firm "Back Bone" & happy teachers .

I cannot say that my experience has been a pleasant one. The teachers are excellent. However, the administrative staff are irresponsible and poor leaders. They do not handle discipline of the students appropriately if at all. My son has been urinated on, hit by other students and had an eraser shoved up his nose. After the last occurrence my son was sent to the school nurse and she called me and told me his allergies were acting up. She went on to say that he was crying and upset. In my opinion that is not related to allergies at all! Later that day my son told me that he was forced to the ground and an eraser was shoved in his nose. What did the school do about this? NOTHING! Furthermore, I called the board of education and was told that they couldn't help me because Mount Auburn International Academy wasn't governed by the board of education. I do not recommend this school, at least not until they get their act together.
