Mast Academy is a one of a kind school. It's located right on the beach with the most beautiful views and amazing location. It is very interactive and you are likely to go kayaking, paddleboarding, and even snorkeling in the beach! Most teachers are very helpful and informative, wanting their students to pass the class and understand what is being taught. You will definitely be prepared for college. One of my favorite things about the school is that we don't have uniform so I can express myself through fashion! There are many clubs and groups to join tailored to all interests. I've had a wonderful time learning at Mast Academy.

Mast Academy offers two advanced curriculum programs. The first one is the nationally recognized Cambridge program and the other one is the Maritime program. The Cambridge/ AICE program offers a pre-university course and it's sponsored by the Cambridge University in England. The Maritime and Science Technology program focuses on marine types of sciences and offers a variety of advanced placement courses dealing with these subjects. MAST Academy is also a magnet school, meaning you have to apply to get in and not everyone can easily get in!
MAST Academy is one of the best schools in the district of Miami-Dade. It fosters a great diversity of subjects of learning, and concentrates on the well-being of the students, while also providing two rigorous academic programs: Cambridge and Maritime. In both programs, students are able to take advanced courses that prepare them for further education after high school, with the Maritime program accentuating the subjects of science and math. It offers special circumstances that other schools in the county fail to include, like water sports and robotics clubs; but it does not stray away from a typical high school experience, also giving chances for art, music, and film programs for all grade levels.
