Mater Academy - East Charter High School Reviews

They lack a lot of electives. The only language class you can take Is Spanish. One of the only AP classes they now offer is only art and Spanish (no other AP courses). The administration is alright but sometimes they’re extremely rude. They hire ANYONE as a teacher, my math teacher had a degree in English. My overall experience in this school from 6-12 grade was and is bad. Also I forgot to mention since they don’t offer many electives once you complete them all they make you take them again.

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
