I much enjoyed the diversity of the school. Students of all walks of life were integrated into multi-dimensional classrooms with learning opportunities for every learning style. The facility was completely new when I transferred there, and I was given every opportunity to succeed as a part of the first graduating class of MAST. This allowed me much room for personal growth, and challenged me to seize every opportunity of leadership in extra-curricular activities. I developed strong interpersonal skills and a lot of confidence as a result of my time at MAST. I feel those characteristics made me successful in college, and will continue to help me as I pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

Most students will tell you that MAST Homestead either is to strict, sucks, or gives to much homework, but this is then opposite. From my 3 years in MAST I can say these student or parents are wrong. First off the bat MAST does not suffer from gang violence or any gang activity at all compared to other schools in its surrounding area, furthermore fights are a rare occurrence. When it comes to academics MAST is at least a step ahead in other schools academic requirements demand you already have taken one year of high school science and math before entering the school. In fact all classes offered are honors, and even after you complete the required amount for dade schools in order to get your M.A.S.T diploma you must continue taking science and math courses for all 4 years.
The school was overall a great experience for me! The staff was great, they treat you with respect and everything. MAST has a lot of Hispanics and other cultures so if you like the diversity you should go here. Another thing MAST is good for is teaching you a lot of the medical field and what you are going to learn. You should come to this school if you want to learn about the medical field.
