Mater Academy - East Charter High School Reviews

64 reviews
All Categories
At the beginning of the school year in 11th grade, I started to become more involved within my school; competed in the chess club, did community service in our Miami Dolphins Stadium, and took part in my school's culture which has been very rich due to our diversity. The school environment was great and friendly supplying students with great resources and facilities, including food for mental readiness.
However as my school started to focus on the academic aspect, sports became less of a priority. Academically we truly excelled, being a school that focuses on business many students would compete in a state level competition for DECA, moving on to nationals. Teachers and parents would be very attentive and passionate towards students making sure we learned, not for temporary knowledge but to carry that knowledge for the rest of their lives. As a senior now I prepare myself for my last year in this wonderful school that has given me many great memories to cherish.

While I had an overall good experience, it definitely could have been better. I wish there would've been some kind of arts program (including drama/theater and music) while I was there. Anything to positively and actively increase creativity. They did well with what they offer though
I loved Mater Academy, it was a great school and amazing experience. I probably would like to see them change some of the teachers but all around great school. I pretty much grew up at Mater and always thought that everyone was so nice and caring and I was never left out on anything.
