Mast is an amazing school. I have had the opportunity to have had to children graduate from this school. The teachers are wonderful and are involved with students. Parents should take responsibltly fortheir kids and be involved in what they do and stop blaming the teachers and the school adminastrators. My Daughter took AP courses and is now in college less credits to pay for. Thank you Mast. What a wonderful school. Keep up the good work for the younger kids of tomorrow.
mast is a good school but they dont take importat issues seriously like bullying they say they wiull but it has be unnoticed
Mast is an amazing school. In a district that is plagued with school violence, poor test results and a lack of parental involvement, I feel blessed that my children attend Mast. The administration is hard working and committed to the school's excellency, the teachers are some of the best in their field and the students are well behaved, intelligent and respectful. Mast parents are very involved and work hard to do their part in creating the wonderful environment that is their children's school. As far as a review of the school goes, the facts speak for themselves. Mast is the best school in the city! Panther Pride!
MaST Charter School has met and exceeded my hopes for a wonderful educational experience for my daughter. The teachers continually go above and beyond their call of duty on a daily basis. They are meeting each child's individual need by accommodating as necessary every single day. With phenomenal support teachers can help students perform to their highest potential. The integration of technology in all disciplines has exposed my daughter to a world of learning. With a large amount of available technology, the teaching is authentic and the learning has meaning and purpose, especially for my daughter. She is a gifted student who loves learning because of the alternatives that are provided for her. The students want to be there and they want to learn! I can see why parents are lined up in droves to have their children attend MaST, I just happened to be one of the lucky ones!
I have heard so many good things about this school but I have yet to see any of them. I am pulling my child out of this school and sending them back to Catholic school where the academics are superior and they will be reminded that they are young ladies and gentlemen.
I feel so blessed to have my children in this school my son is now in the first grade, my daughter in kindergarten. They are thriving and truly enjoying learning the teachers are amazing!! YES you have a few bad seeds in the bunch as far as the children go but they are a reflections of their parents not the school. and the good far outway the bad. I only wish parents would do their job so that teachers could focus on theirs. so all in all this school is amazing if your looking for perfection good luck. I wouldn't have my children anywhere else!! we love MAST!!!!
When I was a student there a few years ago it was a decent school that just needed some things worked out.
This is a great school. My daughter has been doing so well in this school. She is involved in many activities and enjoys going to school everyday.Her grades are always in the high 90's and has been on honor roll twice and this is her first year. She was one of eleven spots picked for sixth grade out of 250 applicants for those seats. She is also a part of the choir who performed this past December at a phantoms game. She also belongs to the orchestra and has a part in the big school production of The Music Man. She loved being a part of Mast's famous science fair.They run a very tight ship and do not tolerate any nonsense.I would recommend this school to any parent, unfortunately getting in the school is difficult. My daughter was lucky to get in when she did.
I absolutely love MaST! My oldest started in K and is now in 4th grade with my youngest starting school this year. My oldest has Asperger's and she has done wonderful! There is no tolerance for being mean to one another because they are all taught to respect themselves and others. My daughter is a prime example of who would be bullied in other schools, but at MaST it is understood that she is different and that is not a bad thing. I am grateful to MaST for giving her an environment where she can grow and learn and not feel that she is disabled, but different like everyone else. We all have are little hurdles to deal with and MaST is a great place to learn how.
This school has a great potential, but does not remotely live up to it. MaST stands for 'Math, Science, and Technology,' but with only 5% of its students meeting state minimal standards in math, something is obviously very wrong. My daughter attended MaST for two years. She's both mentally gifted and learning disabled, but the school failed to meet either special need. My daughter complained about constant personal harassment by other students and poor discipline in nearly all of her classes. With parents lined up in droves to get their kids into charter schools like this one, it baffles me why disruptive behavior and poor classroom performance are tolerated. Surely it would be a simple matter to send uncooperative students back to the public schools and replace them with kids who actually want to learn. Until that happens, MaST does not really stand for 'Math, Science, and Technology.' It stands, instead, for 'Mediocre Attempts at Scholarship and Teaching.' I hope that changes.
My five children go to this school and my two oldest were of the first classes offered at MaST for the 6th and 8th grades. This school not only offers an excellent educational opportunity for the children, but it also encourages parental involvement as well as offering a nurturing environment! I am a proud parent at Mast Community Charter School!
My child is entering 3rd grade and has been enrolled in MaST since Kindergarten which was the first year of Elementary grades at MaST. I have found the teachers and staff to be caring professionals. The curriculum is challenging and the students are consistantly stimulated. The school is growing and improving each year and the results are tangible. My child scored in the 99 percentile for reading on the national Terra Nova tests. There is a required 20 hours of volunteer time per family per year which is evident in the amount of parental involvement. There is also many programs available for special needs children. Both my child and our family has benefited from enrollment in this school. It is really a family environment.
