Good School with the best staff, very kind and caring. Great! supports student-athletes, strongly values education, large variety of inclusive clubs, some great teachers that go above and beyond for their students. Teaching styles and amounts of homework vary by class, grade, and teacher, but the overall learning experience has been very good. All of the teachers are so kind to each child, truly encouraging each to their strengths. I am confident that this school has set a solid foundation for their learning path and that they have developed a true love for learning. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL! The staff of teachers is one of the best (if not the best) in the area. The care and attention they give to students by far exceeds any of our expectations.

Mast Community Charter School is a completely modern, technologically advanced, state of the art 21st century school which prepares students for life in the 21st century. The have the largest telescope in any school on the east coast, a robotics lab, a Makerspace with a 3D printer, a full HD TV studio, a computer lab and a fully advanced library! For students who want to become more involved in their school, they offer something for everyone! They have everything from varsity sports to clubs of all kinds and even a music and drama program!
I really like going to MaST. The academics are great, most of our teachers try their best to keep us engaged. My teachers are amazing. They are both teachers and parent figures and role models. Granted, they may be annoying; but, I am a teenager so I think everything is annoying at some point. Our clubs and activities could be better, but we have a great selection for every grade. It can be hard to engage with clubs, though, since some of us are in CCP or have jobs after school. It is also a bit difficult to do fundraisers and activities due to the Board. We have a lot of school spirit but we don't have a homecoming due to a lack of a football team. On that note, our sports are adequate at best. Hopefully, the fields at the other campuses will improve our sports. The food is okay. There are a lot of options for those who don't have dietary restrictions. Our diversity is definitely getting better and we have decent college readiness prep but our counselors are hard to contact.
