Mast Community Charter School Reviews

it wouldn't let me type my whole review, so here are the pros and cons.

Pros: the technology is great! I came from a public school, so it's a different experience. if you forgot to copy down homework, you can access a teacher's page. the school is also pretty secure. there's rarely any fights because they all get stopped before they start. the middle school counselor, Mrs. Smith is one of the best counselors I've ever had.

cons: bullying is a problem. students are always causing drama, being rude towards others, and want to fight others. many of the students say offensive things such as homophobic/transphobic slurs, make fun of mental illnesses, make rape/sexual assault jokes, and just plain rude in general. every time one of these jokes are made, the teachers never give out consequences for it. the only time someone gets in trouble is when there are holes in their jeans or when a GIRL, 13 OR OLDER, (never a boy or little kid), is wearing shorts shorter than 3 inches above the knee.

MaST offers a lot to all of there students. They started a SAIL program for students who need extra help with basic life skills, as well as having a STREAM program with the focus on embedding Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Arts, and Math. They are empowering young men and women. They have a robotics club called “If She Builds”. The program is run by a tech teacher who has female high school students mentor elementary girls on how to build and program a robot. I was one of the mentors and I thought this was a great program what has a positive effect on the young girls.
In the nine years that I attended MaST, I enjoyed most of them. The atmosphere was home like and the teachers formed a special bond with students and fought to see them succeed. Although our sports teams were not the greatest the games were always a fun time and the whole school came and showed their spirit. I personally feel like the different opportunities given to the students by the school help prepare them for college. Whether it was the AP classes or clubs or office hours after school, the teachers were always looking for the best way to help their students succeed.
