Jose Marti MAST 6-12 Academy Reviews

Some teachers actually try and make you try to learn their subject and are really passionate such as Ms. Prieto. Others do not care and do not take student's into consideration at all, all they're here for is a paycheck and absolutely nothing else. You can tell they're not passionate about their subject anymore and the administration gives any open position to anyone even if the teacher doesn't even know anything. An example of this kind of teacher is Ms. Barnes, when I had her all she wanted to do was gossip about other people's relationships and made people feel insecure. Teachers also give busy work to keep the students busy and do their own business, not giving any work that would benefit us during test taking or in the future. Not only does this school requires perfection but it also tries to make itself look good without the student's interest in mind.

I think Jose Marti is a phenomenal school to go to. Frankly, its strength lies in the collective intelligence of both the students and teachers. It is a safe and welcoming school for students eager to learn. While it is filled to the brim with good teachers, the sports programs are lacking in this school. This school is heavily STEM based, with focus on mathematics and science being prominent in most students schedules. The classes are quite rigorous, and I believe college readiness is the main objective for going to this school, but be warned of burnout. Students here are innovative and generally don't have physical altercations. One thing that this school is also lacking is a music class, and while there is a recently established music club, I'd like to see funding put toward the arts. Overall this school is a great place to go to be prepared for a college education and to have a phenomenal education.
The school is missing what some would consider very vital extracurricular activities, them being a music club and some sort of major sports team. Although it does have some sports groups such as the volleyball or cross country team, they are ver small and nothing to brag about. Besides this however the school offers a good selection of extracurricular activities. This includes chess club, green club, key club, National Honor Society, SPECTRUM, and mu alpha theta. So although the school does have very good clubs available, it leaves the musician and the athlete with few options to choose.
