Mater Academy - Charter High School Reviews

389 reviews
All Categories
I really enjoyed being able to learn from so many dedicated teachers that genuinely want to see their students succeed. Some of these teachers are Ms.Lecoin, an amazing algebra teacher that will not rest until you understand the concept, Mr.Morales a superb Biology teacher that honestly made the class a fun learning environment that allowed the students to engage during class time, and Mr.Lantz the Ap English teacher. He is one of the few teachers that talk about the world we're living in and what we can do to better it. He opened so many conversations and debates that allowed students to think beyond what they thought they could. Besides academics Mater Academy has wide range of organizations and clubs that teach students real world skills. Like Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), this club teaches students how to overcome a very common fear: Public Speaking.
