This school cares more about their personal issues than the education they are supposed to give students. The teachers participate in drama/rumors the kids are involved in. The principles are never in their office nor are the teachers ever in their classrooms. The staff acknowledge bullying going on and do nothing about it and sometimes even participate in it. This school is very unorganized and lack communication between staff badly! If any parent sends their child here please be very involved!

I attend this school this isn't really what the school says they have to offer. All Staff members treat students unfairly, and the rules don't make sense at all: 1) Wear a belt if your pants have belt loops or lunch detention. 2) No Mohawks because they are not in dress code. 3) Sac. (detention) if you forgot ONE homework. and so on... This is not the school you want to attend to!

My daughter attends Mata for the first time and she really loves it. She loves the teachers, kids, and all of the electives. As far as the dress code that s a district thing not the school, so maybe for the previous comments you need to direct that to for the bad ratings not Mata. Keep up the good work MATA!!!!

I wasn't pleased at all at this school. The teachers seem so drawn into their personal lives to care about preparing the students for middle and high school. I agree, the dress code was extremely strict, and whoever didn't follow it was punished. I went here for both years, and although I don't really remember it that well, I wouldn't actually recommend it too anyone!

I am a parent and would not refer anyone to go to this school It seems they care more about not being in mode of dress than learning.

I can not agree with the last corespondent. This school is truly lacking in the experience needed for their students. My son goes to this school and I find the teacher nonchalant attitude about the student academics appalling. This is one of the main reasons I am moving out of this district.

This school is amazing. I went to this school, and I have never loved any school more. All my teachers were nice, the kids were also nice, there weren't any bad influence around the school, and they were just great. I wish I could go back there.
