Jose Marti MAST 6-12 Academy Reviews

Jose Marti Mast 6-12 Academy is a great academic school, but it needs to work on its clubs, sports, and activities. For example, there are no high school sports which I think is pathetic because they have more than enough space for an indoor gym or a football field. I care about this because I love sports. Another thing is that very little staff care for the students they say they care, do they really care. For example, the 8th graders had to petition the school to get prom at night and even then they can't have a prom court because it is too much like homecoming which is absolutely ridiculous. So that was my experience at Jose Marti Mast 6-12 Academy.

What I like about Jose Marti Mast Academy is that it's not your typical school. Everyone there is focused on their grades and education. But what I wish I could change about this school is the way the school is structured and spends its money, for example, there are no sports or games for the high school kids to go and feel more connected to the school. And most of the time there is no money to change a simple door in the girl's bathroom if it gets broken. Most of the administration doesn't really care for the school and just runs it their way and doesn't accept small opinions from the kids on what they can do better.
Overall, the teacher are mediocre and do not provide the necessary rigor to prepare students for college. Moreover, there is a lack of effective counseling towards the success of students. They do not provide the creative freedom to students to accomplish their passions in a certain field. AP classes are at the same level as the rest of the class. There are not regular classes, which makes the GPA of everyone be really high as compared to other high school. This high school has a lot of potential, as far as students, however it is not being exploited.
