Mater Academy - Charter High School Reviews

I like the opportunities given at Mater Academy! There are many clubs, sports, and programs to chose from that can benefit the future of a student. For example, dual enrollment is provided at Mater Academy, if you meet the requirements. Dual enrollment allows students to take college classes from several colleges such as MDC, Doral College, and FIU. With this program students can graduate with their AA. Another example is AP classes, this allows students to take college level courses in school, and if passed they can receive college credits! Clubs available include of many Honor Societies, many volunteer clubs, such as Key Club, and a variety of other clubs for anyone to chose from and join! I would like Mater Academy to add some more sports, so that everyone may have a chance to play; There are some sports available right now such as softball, baseball, football, flag football, cheerleading, basketball girls and boys, and track/cross country.

Amazing school. The staff and teachers care for their students, not only education but mental health. Great school to achieve all your goals, with many college, Dual enrollment, and AP classroom programs that they offer. Furthermore, they are a STEAM school that offer many more opportunities for students in their classroom with many different types of why to learn and understand the topic throughout the school year. I love my school and I proudly say GO Lions!
I love how well organized the school is. Everytime we, as students, need help they are always available and they have an amazing communication with their students. What I would like to see change is the food that they offer at the Cafeteria. I think we should eat healthier, not only at home, but also at school. The school should provide food with better quality!
