I had a great experience at MAST. The school provided an environment where I could gain knowledge, learn basic skills, and develop many talents. I made many friends throughout my four years at MAST. The teachers were very helpful and accepting! I'm glad I had the opportunity to build great relationships with them. It was definitely the best academic experience I could have received. I wish the school would've had sports but besides that, it was great.

MAST isn't the typical high school. There aren't sports teams, field trips (I've been on 1 in two years of school), or music/art classes (there's flvs but no in-person classes). However, it more than makes up for these shortcomings in the rigorous academics and general environment. As it's a magnet school, there are only AP and Honors classes. These never feel overly difficult or tedious, and the passion that most teachers have is clearly on display for their students. In terms of cleanliness, I honestly don't think there's a cleaner school in Dade County. The bathrooms are clean, the toilets are clean, the floors are clean, the desks are clean, everything is spotless. The janitorial staff truly shines. The school is also very safe; no problems with drugs, fights, bullying, etc.

TL;DR It's a school with challenging academics, clean environments, and safe atmosphere.
Medical Academy for Science and Technology is a school that offers a variety of opportunities for its students and has a welcoming environment for its students, teachers, and staff. They have many variations of clubs for everyone's different interests. For example, there is a Korean Club for lovers of K-pop and people who want to learn more about Korean Culture. Although they have these awesome and cool clubs, there are some changes that I would like to see. I would like more music/arts electives such as a singing elective for kids who want to learn how to sing or an elective to teach kids how to play instruments. Nonetheless, I feel that MAST is an overall excellent school for kids who want to excel and grow as a person and make new friendships that will last a lifetime.
