I have attended Mastbaum High School since 2014 which was the start of my freshman year and I now am I senior of class of 2018. Mastbaum overall is a great school with many positive things such as our trade also know as a "
shop". You receive your shop your sophomore year and once you get it you wont want to be in any other class. The bad part about Mastbaum is some teachers can be hard to reason with, the bathrooms and lunch room are not always well kept due to rude students and lack of janitorial staff and lastly the uniform is not as good as it was in 2014.

Jules e Mastbaum is a vocational school and there is 9 shops which you select in your 9 ninth and will be attending in your 10 grade year. You will stay in shops for 3 years and I’m your last will have to complete a nocti exam. If you pass the nocti on your diploma it will say that you completed for example “ Culinary arts program” I really do love this school most of my teachers are amazing and become your friends in professional way. Your shop teachers really do care about you and is always worried about future just as much as you are. Before I came here I heard bad reviews about this school but as I have gotten the chance to attend this school my self I have realized that don’t ever “ judge a book by its cover” that will only lead you to failure. This school gets you ready to be more than Eligible for jobs fro your major in this school. 100% would redone my highschool experience if I could at this school.
I like the CTE Shops of Mastbaum because they provide the learning experience of working in different fields and also this school infoms you and exposes you to many different financial and learning opportunities. But I also feel as though it could be more organized and provide more sports and club options that could fit everyones interest.
