New leadership beginning three years ago/cool changes/lots of opportunities. Great school/outstanding teachers. Offers strong college prep/liberal arts curriculum and four new academic institutes, including Leadership programs. MDP does not just offer model UN participation...it is part of the UN. Offers traditional and "outside the box" learning opportunities to prepare kids for college. When kids graduate, they get accepted into top colleges/universities. Challenging/exceptional...so glad I chose MDP!

I had an amazing experience at Mater Dei. I feel the academics prepared me for college and the community was very connected. To this day, I still keep in touch with several classmates! We never seemed to have any bullying issues and I only had positive experiences.
Mater Dei Prep is a great place to get involved with. Everybody is family and well connected. Faculty and staff are great, and anyone could get easily involved!
