This school is perfect for those who are good at individual study. The teachers are a great help when you have questions about the content of the class. English teachers are amazing and inspiring. You can tell that science teachers love what they do and love hands-on activities. There are not many electives to choose from that are non-academic. AP classes cause a lot of extra stress and work for students but are a great opportunity to gain college credit. The clubs are great to meet new friends. Overall, my experience was average and could have been better.

MAST is an excellent school with four amazing academies: Biomedical Sciences, Physical Therapy, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and iMed Medical. This school offers many opportunities and resources that guide you and help you learn about Pre-Med as well as other multiple medical careers. The teachers are always encouraging and supportive of issues that you may come across, whether it be school related or a personal matter, they always have the students’ best interests in mind. MAST would be a definite top tier High School if it had a field for outdoor activities and a sports team.
I really enjoy all of the different activities and initiatives that teachers and students create to make the year worth-while. I also really like the teachers and the administration as they make your questions personally and do not disregard them as if they were stupid or what not. I really like the rigor of the courses in this school as it makes it challenging to be a student there and I always like a challenge. Without such rigor, I believe I would not be as prepared for college as I am now. On top of that, most advisors and counselors are really helpful in guiding you towards the right path for college enrollment and scholarship availability.
