Karl G. Maeser is filled with motivated teachers and motivated students. Yes, it is tougher than your average high school but all the more worthwhile; you are surrounded by great peers and mentors. Plus, the winterim program means that you take almost the entire month of January off to do a big (and often really fun) project, either one provided by the school or an approved independent project. Yes!

I love attending this school. It prepares students extremely well for college by having amazing teachers and programs that push students to their maximum potential. Since it is a small school, Maeser allows students to be involved in a variety of activities allowing for a truly enriching experience. One thing that Maeser has that no other school has is a class called Socratic. Socratic is based on how the great philosopher Socrates taught. The students discuss morals and ideas in the class and come to a conclusion as a class which allows for true thought and learning.
Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy is different. The learning environment--although intense and difficult--is like nothing else. At Maeser, academics are taken how they should be: seriously. Teachers are attentive and caring, but also willing to push you to your limits. I am have grown tremendously since I began my Maeser experience. I have siblings that attend as well and they have improved their study skill, grades, and zest for education. It is truly a great school.
