As the parent of a soon-to-be high school graduate, all I have is praise for Mariana Bracetti Academy Charter School. I found in this school what we couldn't find in other schools. The teachers are well qualified and easy to get in touch with. The counselors are very helpful and knowledgeable. The principal is always looking for ways to improve the school's quality, and is always fast to respond to any concern you might have. I know she will continue to pursue even more progress for this school and the students will be able to take advantage and benefit from what the school offers.

I have two children in MBA and Although I am pleased with how the school is, I wish they were are attentive to students who want to acheive more. The staff is not as approachable as I would like them to be for my children.

This school has seen some high times and low times over the years. The administration's concern with test scores is only because of the idiocy of our government and the emphasis they place on the notion that 'higher scores=more funding'. The administration has done a remarkable job given the position they are in; they have found amazing teachers and do all they can to make the MBA experience a good one.

I was a part of the first graduating class of mba. I can honestly say that I loved my school or should i say classmates and teachers..... The administration at mba is definitly not the best .....They act like they arent worried about important things like college instead being more concerned with pssa scores or getting the charter renewed each year ...My 4 years at mba have been the best of my young life. But if I could choose I would make mrs chestnut the senior administrator ...The school would have a complete turn around.

This school is filled with teachers who are excellent both in their profession and character. They are dediacted and energetic, this is a sure win ! The staff is truly concerned with the welfare of the children and they work hard and long hours figuring out the best ways for the children to succeed.
