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.
Review Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy
Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy is a smaller charter school for students in the 7-12 grade. Maeser Prep is a whole culture that is about giving your heart and soul to something that is truly meaningful. Thier Board, Administration, Faculty, and Staff love what they do and are dedicated to provide a quality college-preparatory education that will “empower and inspire students to think critically, learn continually, and communicate effectively through use of the Socratic method to better themselves and their community.” I have been given many opportunities to learn how to learn about the world and many aspects of it. The students are kind and include everyone.
Students at Maeser aren't just high school students. Students at Maeser are encouraged to think deeply and use the Socratic Method as they make decisions and discuss things with people throughout their lives. Students at Maeser are part of something bigger. Students at Maeser participate in extra curricular and community programs ranging from sports to helping stop human trafficking. Maeser Prep is a place where we not only learn but develop relationships that will last far longer than high school. Maeser is a place where we learn that the values of Truth, Honor and Virtue will help us throughout our lives. Maeser is a place where teachers care about their students and have a strong desire to help their students learn knowledge. Maeser is a place where you learn to prepare to go to college. Maeser is a place where you feel like you belong and Maeser is a place where everyone is loved.
