I love being at Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy! The quality of education is unlike any other. Everything is taught at the honors level, and the honor classes at Maeser are a step above that. We are taught through the Socratic method which is the method of asking questions so that we delve deeper into things instead of just scratching the surface of topics. The teachers are super involved with the students and they want to see us succeed. They do so much for the school and put activities together for us. The culture of the students is also way different. Our school's motto is "truth, honor, and virtue." We are taught to be honest and respectful to each other and we all value an education and are eager to learn.

Karl G. Maeser Academy teaches students not only to be good students, but to be critical thinkers inside, as well as outside, of the classroom environment. By engaging in Socratic discussion in English and history classes, and using classical literature, students as young as fifteen can learn how to think for themselves, and see truth from various points of view, a vital skill to have in life. For those seeking learning through more than just textbooks and whiteboards, Karl G. Maeser Academy provides a learning environment unlike any public school where students can personally engage with material and make their own discoveries.
I have loved attending Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy since seventh grade. I love the teachers, and feel that they genuinely care about their students. The academics are great, and they focus on a classical education which I think strengthens students understanding of the world around them. Maeser is awesome!
