Mat-Su Central School (MSCS) is a unique school. It is actually a homeschooling resource center. Families that are enrolled in homeschool can come in to meet with advisors and teachers, they can take classes, gain access to school supplies, and much more to help homeschooling families succeed. Many parents don't haven't spent years as professional teachers, but they can meet with and learn from people who have, teachers who have put together their own courses, taught their own students, and even been principals at other brick-and-mortar schools. However, the key difference with Mat-Su Central is that they allow for family and individual diversity in the learning system, in fact they celebrate it! Each child has their own advisor, their own learning plan, and their own future goals, all of which are measured, tracked, and highly encouraged. It is a relaxed and fun, learning-centered environment, great for people and families from all walks of life.

My favorite experience is the greeting I get when I walk into the school from the front desk. They greet you and help you with what you need to get things done faster. What makes my school unique, is the decorations inside the building which make it look really amazing and it shows that they do there best to make there students feel comfortable. I would choose this school again because the teachers and students there are all nice and great team workers! They have there own espresso place where the school board and students may get coffee for there day. It is the best place to go to and enjoy your time there.
Mat-Su Central offers many awesome, fun and amazing after-school activities. They allow the students to take which course they like and then are taught everything they need to know and from there on they lean more! The clubs and opportunities that Mat-Su Central offers is off the charts!
