Mater is a charter school so it offers a lot of opportunities that a student at a regular public school might not have. For example, Mater offers many AP classes as well as Dual Enrollment opportunitites. However, at Mater, if you are not in the top 10%, then you will be ignored and forgotten. It is a very crowded school with not much space so hallways are always cramped and there is no space to eat lunch so kids just eat in the hallways. School lunch sucks, but that is more of Michelle Obama's fault (thanks Obama). There are only a few good teachers, like a handful. The rest are just the worst. MATER HAS THE WORST SCIENCE DEPARTMENT EVER! The great teachers really stand out and make up for the rest. 99% of the school is hispanic, 98% is cuban so there is really no diversity. It's a microcosm of hispanics since the school is located in Hialeah. It's a pretty good school, better than my local public school.

What makes Mater special is that we are a family. I've known many of these people since I was 11, and the teachers and staff have watched me grow up. With so many clubs and organizations to choose from there is always something to do in your free time. Can't find one? You can start your own! This is one the best things at Mater Academy, if a student wants to create a project, a club, a movement: THEY CAN! This goes without mentioning the best CAP advisor in the world! She does everything she possibly can to make sure that we are not only ready for college, but can go to where we want to go. Additionally there's a great dual enrollment program, with over 70 kids graduating with their Associates in Arts Degree (A.A) as well as their high school diploma. The performing arts are also top notch here. We have the Gleeks, the Lion Marching Band along with the Color Guard, the Thespains, The Lionettes among others! Overall, it is a wonderful school which I love.
Mater Academy Performing Art and Entertainment Academy is a school that will prepare you for college better than any other school will. The teachers will help you if needed and hard work is always required.
