At MCSC I am in senior and my experienced at the school is cool. The school helped me grown to be responsible and independent. I learned new things and gained skills over the years that will prepare me for college. Although the school is a college ready school, it transformed by allowing other people to see that even if you don’t go to college you can be set and do something with yourself whether it’s trading school or job training. The only thing I would want to change at the school is have more literacy extracurriculars, so student could learn more about creative writing, African American literatures, and more dept into poems

Mastery is a very good and well known school. The staff tries to keep up with the students life, and that's the best thing ever. We're a very evolved community and we try to bring as many people in as possible. Mastery exposes us to a variety of life techniques. For example, in the 10th grade we're required to find and participate in an internship and do an exhibition project, and as a sophomore, I think that it's great that Mastery wants us to find our dream job, and get a lot of exposure to it, so that we're prepared and have some knowledge as to how that specific field works.
This school is exponentially growing from a minimal amount of resources. It's impressive in its diversity of teachers and curriculum and continues to impress. Mastery Charter is not as rich as most schools because the foundation has been founded only a few years ago as they continue to renovate and enhance d buildings for more improvement and structure. Depending on the Mastery that is attended, safety could be a concern because the idea is to recreate and shape "abandoned" neighborhoods and although the school can't recreate it themselves alone, they attempt to make it to the responsibilities of the students.
