Mastery Charter School - Pickett Middle/High School Reviews

71 reviews
All Categories
I graduated in 2015. I was there since 7th grade, and the school had many problems. The school's academic curriculum was too experimental for me to be truly enriched with information and education. I felt that they never truly had a route for students to be successful, and that claim that they failed many students. If the focus was college, the school should have had more opportunities to experience college-like work. I feel that the school is getting a lot better, and I left at a rough time. When I left, education was becoming more self-taught, which I was necessary for soon to be college students. However, the transition into students self teaching themselves was abrupt and sudden. Students did not feel prepared, and prior to this transition, there were many other teaching methods before. Nonetheless, Pickett was better than many other schools because the teachers did want the best for their students, and there were opportunities for students to excel if they wanted to.

As a senior at Mastery I appreciate all of what the school has to offer trips to Puerto Rico, collge fairs, career fairs, AP courses, college visits to our campus, ACT bootcamp. I think that Mastery Pickett campus specifically offers students of Philadelphia opportunities that could not be offered at other schools. There is a diverse amount of opportunities offered at the school for little to no cost. I have never been at a school that has offered the same range of opportunities without it costing a lot. I appreciate and love the school I attend.
Extracurricular opportunities at this school are vast and requires little to no requirements because our school wants students to be heavily involved in activities outside of the school. Students and teachers commitment for school activities is on another level. For instance, in house wars people will argue with other groups and accuse them for cheating. One student in my class, named DJ, would yell out school events in the middle of class and teachers wouldn't penalize him because they recognized that he is doing something positive and was a way to add some spark into class. Extracurricular activities are always fun and brought us together.
