Phenomenal teachers (with 1 exception) and a very homey and personalized experience. Classes are small, the teachers are knowledgeable and flexible, and the students are mostly interesting and motivated. The activities are well run. I gained a lot from this school and owe them a ton (particularly Mr. Regele).

Mass Academy isn't for everyone, but if you can handle the tough coursework, you will find it to be an excellent place for making friends and furthering your ambitions. The quality of the faculty and students and the resources available at WPI make this school unparalleled in the vast opportunities it present to those fortunate to attend.
Going to Mass Academy has been the greatest decision of my life. At my old school, I was held back by students who didn't want to learn and teachers who didn't want to teach. Mass Academy is an amazing school. Making friends was extremely easy. The students help each other succeed and thrive. The teachers love teaching and are great at it.
