The Math and Science Academy is located in Woodbury, Minnesota. The environment is very safe, and students feel welcomed at the school. The teachers are invested in their students' success, and the curriculum is very rigorous. Though the school size and student body is very small, a high percentage of the students take advanced courses through AP and PSEO, and the graduating students rank high for college readiness. The clubs and activities offered at the school are diverse and well-run, however, the sports teams are small and do not play at the level of other schools in the district.

This school is perfect if you are happy with having 4+ hours of homework every night followed by several anxiety attacks. Although preparing for college is the main goal, they also prepare you for a life of never feeling good enough and never being on top of your schedule. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that 80% of students end up going PSEO because they can’t stand the environment of MSA for too long or they suffocate. Although the teachers are easy to talk to, they also feel no remorse in assigning 3 tests/quizzes on one day. Overall, it’s a below average school with an above average curriculum.
It's a great small school for the fact that everyone knows everyone - grades are like families, and every teacher not only knows the students' names, but has a relationship with them. Staying for 7 years can make anyone a little stir crazy, so PSEO in 11th and 12th grade is HIGHLY recommended! Overall challenging courses and friendly environment.
