There are many teachers here who care about their students and try to help them succeed. There is also a lot of diverse students attending this school. However, there are many flaws to this school. There are no sports at this school, students must join sports teams at different schools to play a sport. There is also a lack of AP classes as there are only around 5. The school's facilities are also very poor. There is a lot of mold, broken tiles, holes in the ceiling, and rain leakage. There are also no toilet seat covers and the soap in the bathroom are not always refilled. The school culture is almost non-existent. There are very few times in which the school has spirit and those are often cancelled due to fights that breakout on campus. Also, administration does not listen to their students and some even puts students down.

I liked the whole academic aspect of the school and how the schedule was set up. I also liked that when you enter the school as a sixth-grader there is a summer program where they show you how the school works and how to set up and use the accounts you will need to function at the school. I also liked that the school encouraged taking college classes and made it very accessible to its students. Something I would change about the school is how strict their uniform policy is and the grading system. I would also change the fact that the bathrooms weren't always presentable, especially the older ones.
Mare Island Technology Academy is a school that most people overlook. For one, people dislike the way the campus is widely open and the classes are portables. Wouldn't seem like the best idea of a school. But what people don't understand and see is that the students and staff make up for it. This school has students from different backgrounds and cultures. MIT students have ideas as good as other schools in this area.

Although this school is overall average in sports (we don't have a sports team) or other things, I would like to see more opportunities for AP courses. There is only a limited range of Advanced Placement classes and I hope to see change is a more diverse set of classes for the new coming students.
