Hardy Williams Academy Mastery Charter School Reviews

If any person were to ask me should they enroll their child into Mastery Charter School. I would automatically reassure them that they'd be making a mistake because for some parents it's the closest in the area. However, the parents don't understand what it's like to be a student in that school. The school is all about discipline in actions and even if they reassure you that they are all about helping your child, really they are troublesome. The students are provided these demerit cards which attain six slots for each time they misbehave a month. They will also receive bathroom passes which will attain 3-5 slots for every "emergency" you may have for the entire month. The Deans are very troublesome and will send you home for something that could be as little as not dressing in appropriate attire or a small incident can happen and refer to it as disorderly conduct. Based off of this please think about what's best for your child because their are always better options.

I enjoyed my experience at Hardy Williams. From the students, to the staff, to the academics. The teacher to student relationship is like no other. You would think the staff are our family because of how much they genuinely care for us and interact with us. If given a chance to start over and pick a new school I would pick Hardy Williams all over again.
Hardy Williams Academy Mastery School for students can be described as a very challenging and somewhat of a frustrating experience. Mastery has stated before that it is a school that provides rigorous curriculum and better opportunity but in reality it has not shown the real side of this mission. Students that go to this school have faced many problems with how the deans and teachers handle each situation on a every day basis.
