Mater Academy Charter High was an amazing school and provided excellent resources throughout my high school years. They have amazing college preparation programs that assist many students, and our CAP advisors are a great help. They inform us about every scholarship out there and always make sure we are on top of everything including college and school tasks. The school allows students to get very involved and they have great opportunities for aspiring athletes. The school's administration is always keeping everything in check and enforce the school codes daily. Overall, Mater Academy Charter High is a great school to grow in and has a good environment with good people.
Attending Mater Academy for the past four years has been an overall pleasant experience. The majority of teachers and faculty are dedicated, especially the CAP advisor who makes sure all students are ready for college and ensures that they are taking advantage of all opportunities offered. The best part about this school is the academic experience and the way everyone is pushed to take AP courses and dual enrollment. The college prep at Mater Academy is exemplary as the resources offered are not found in typical schools. However, no school is perfect. There are too many prerequisites for graduation, some of which are not necessary. Some less qualified students are also placed in advanced courses against their will. There also other flaws like the overcrowded halls, security, and questionable lunch food. The school is not spacious enough to accommodate over 2100 students. Other than that, the school is great and prepares its students well for colleges.
