Masterman is an all together great school, but ITS FIFTH GRADE OR BUST. If you're not accepted to Masterman in grades 5 or 6 you most likely will not be accepted to the High School. Only 100 students are accepted into the high school each year and they most choose from the 200 8th graders here. Many advanced classes but unlike Central you cannot graduate with a Bachleor degree from Masterman. Middle school has a limited amount of clubs and most of the focus is on the high school but we're the best in PA for a reason! BTW PARENTS by sending your child here they will have completed Algebra 1 (1/3 of the eight graders complete Algebra 2, I was one of them) so that means they will have their Algebra 1 keystone out of the way and they will have also completed either Spanish 1 or French 1 (it's a lottery to see what language you have)

It's the best high school in the state. You can research the stats anywhere. However, it's a magnet school for the district and very selective for entrance.

Masterman school is really for the exceptional child and the exceptional parent. The school is run by exceptional leadership staff and exceptional Teachers. Sorry for the redundancy of the word exceptional. lol

Masterman has held the position of top school in Pennsylvania for several years for many reasons. The location affords a very balanced diversity, in all ways, and this creates a rich cultural and psychological environment for learning. Driven to challenge themselves with a demanding "consumer base" of students and families, the teachers bring energy, skill, talent and experience (in many ways) to their work. The students are eager, cooperative, positive and motivated, and they hold themselves and each other to high standards. I consider myself extremely lucky to have my children educated in this school, and like all of the parents at Masterman, I do whatever I can to support the school and contribute to its success.

Masterman is a wonderful school and such a family oriented place. The love and support displayed for the teachers help the children not feel like just a number. My son was a bit nervous when he first got to Masterman but soon became well adjusted with so much positive energy in the air it was hard not to be infected by it. I love the staff, home & school association and my son loves the school as well!

My son John attends Masterman Julia R Secondary School.As a parent I am so grateful that he is able to go to the top high school in the city of Philadelphia and the top high school in the state of PA. The teachers are dedicated. The principal leadership is amazing. The parent involvement is great. Right now our Philly schools are in such need of help. The students love their school and I know they would be grateful for any financial help they would receive. The building itself needs a little TLC and the classrooms need supplies. Please support our school. Thank you for your consideration.

As a 2009 graduate, I can not thank Masterman enough for the education that it gave me. The community that rallies behind the school is bar none and the intelligence, integrity and long lasting commitment to education that echoes from its halls is inspiring and refreshing. Teachers do not exist at Masterman because they are so much more. They are mentors, educators, civil leaders, academics, role models and friends. They have a breadth of knowledge that is not found in most universities. They are always willing to help students and are continuously looking for new ways to engage their pupils. The quality of the student body is not found in any other school in the City of Philadelphia or for the sate for that matter. Students represent multiple races, ethnicities, and incomes. From the NE to South Philly, West Mt. Airy to University City, every area of the city becomes a part of the Masterman community. In layman's terms this is an AMAZING school.

Great school in the heart of Philadelphia. Strong parent involvement and a great community of teachers.

Excellence, hard work, diligence and drive, dedication to the community and to the tasks at hand -- these are the elements I see Masterman instilling into its kids. So proud and grateful to be part of this amazing community and special kudos to our Principal, Ms. Marjorie Neff, who has never waivered in her dedication and devotion to the school despite the incredibly difficult challenges she must meet each day.

I started at fifth grade and now going into sixth. The food is great! There's warm fresh food like chicken, pizza and you can also make your own sandwiches or hoagies or tortillas. I enjoyed computers and music. They are the easiest of my opinion. You have to be prepared to get your hands tired from writing. There is alot of homework but what they teach will help you in your life. You will not regret going here. You will make new friends and have a great time. You play on the roof (no worries parents, is fenced so nobody gets hurt or falls). You can play foosball, basketball, ping pong, wall ball, jump rope, and there is a "Japanese Garden" for a quiet studying/ reading place. Wish everybody well!

I attended Masterman from 5th through 12th grade (graduated in 2006). Anyone that says you should not send your children to this school are either severly lacking in intelligence or hold a grudge because they couldn't make it while attending class there. Masterman has the highest SAT scores in the Philadelphia region; the next best schools' scores are not even close. I graduated 72nd out of 110 students and my GPA was still a 3.72! Only the best of the best make it to the highschool and there is no doubt that once you graduate, transitioning to a college workload is a piece of cake. Teacher expectations are indeed high, but its because they know how hard it is for children to get into the school in the first place and are willing to bet that the students will meet the challenges they are faced with (which most do with flying colors and a little bit of hard work). Rest assured, you can send your children to this school knowing the education they receive will be top notch and they will basically be able to go to any college they want.


Posted June 7, 2013

Masterman is a very advanced school, the work is advanced, the majority of the teachers are kind, and the students are friendly. There is no repetitive school uniform that you have to wear, and the cafeteria food is better than usual school food (that's my opinion, at least). The work will be much more difficult than other schools, and there will be some days where you will have to work for a while. My only complaints are that the bathrooms are dirty sometimes, and you will most likely have to wake up earlier than usual the go there (it's not a neighborhood school). Besides this, the school is excellent, and you will not regret enrolling.

I'm a junior at mansterman and i have started at 5th grade. The school is pretty good and the staff members are also good. The biggest problems for me as transition from my old school to masterman due to it's work load. The teachers here are it and miss some are really good others are not as good. My one bit of advice is take spanish the French program is really good in 10th and 11th grade but 8th and 9th graders will struggle with french and the huge spike in difficulty doesn't help.


Posted January 11, 2013

I am currently enrolled in this school at sixth grade. The majority of kids here are pretty nice. But the amount of work here, is well totally different than the amount at my old school. You get projects like every week along with bunch of other homework. They give you like one week to complete a complicated project. You hand in homework one day late, you get a fifty. Often, on one day, there could be more than two tests and all these assignments due. I mean, I use to enjoy school days and dread weekends because I get to hang out with my friends. But now, I love weekends, the main reason is SLEEP. Gosh, I was so close to falling asleep in couple of classes today. I often get less than six hours of sleep because I live far away and the loads of homework.

Masterman Is the top high school in the country. And the middle school is top notch. Anyone that says derogatory things about Masterman it's because they could not make it. The school is extremely competitive. Private schools are all about money. Masterman is about getting the best of the best.

Masterman is a remarkable community of students, teachers, staff & families.Students are very well prepared for the academic rigors of college.This is remarkable given the poor physical plant and funding challenges.Despite the competitive nature of academics found in any academically oriented school. Graduates consistently talk about how close they are, support one another, and feel they are competing with the outside world not each other. We give most of the credit to the kids themselves and the teachers in the classroom. How, there are some areas that could use improvement. While there is a core of outstanding, dedicated, talented teachers at every level, there are still many teachers the kids adn parents (and perhaps administration) shake their head s about and wonder how they continue to teach here. With large class sizes, the teachers need to be engaging, engaged, interesting, and able to be understood. Language is sometimes a barrier, lack of interest, or just poor teaching skills still persist. We need more tutoring and/or before and after school availability of teachers in every subject to support the students, especially in high school.

I went to Masterman from 5th to 8th grade and I hated it. The majority of the kids are extremely snobbish and look down on you if you are not on their level. The academics are good, but some teachers are better than others and certain star pupils get way more attention, also when I was there, the nurse never did her job. The faculty does not care enough about what is going on with students outside of their academics. Not a wide variety for sports and clubs, overall I am very glad I left this school. Do your child a favor and don't send them to this school.

I'm Currently Not Attending Masterman But I'm Going To Apply To Masterman Because I've Been Hearing Nothing But Good Thing's Of This School, But On This Page, Reading Everyone's Review Of Masterman I'm Starting To Have Mixed Feelings Of Masterman. Someone Help !!


Posted September 3, 2012

Masterman is truly a great school it teaches you many things. I happened to be advanced at this school taking high school courses in middle school. The four years I spent here were truly a fun and educating. I can't thank this school enough for helping me get into a great high school. Not all the teachers there are great but that is the case in almost every public school. The teachers I had were truly amazing. Although a person wouldn't think it was a great academic school by looking at it. Master an didn't have a lot of money. I got accepted to the high school but didn't go. Lots of teachers at the middle school level were high school teachers increasing your chances of getting a bad teacher someone may have received. If someone does pick Masterman they made a great choice.
