About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Marc & Eva Stern Math and Science High School Reviews
Overall, the education was challenging, but always pushed us to our potential. What I disliked was that we are a majority group of students that do not count on alot of money for college, so we took all the opportunities given to apply for scholarships at the school, and they didnt give us the money!! They said we must buy the things we need first, such as tuition or school supplies, books, etc., and then take the reciepts to get a refund...how do they expect us to buy our laptop cash??????? Disappointing...
I am offended as an American every time I drive by this school and see the United States Flag completely worn out. It is a disgrace to see a United States flag that looks like if you dragged it around several months, torn, and faded flying up what many parents consider a prestigious academic institution. That flag should have been retired several years ago.
I found my son Nicholas R Camacho's first year at MASS was very educational and insightful for him, the teachers challenged him and made him work harder then a traditional LAUSD school. The only thing I was disapointed with was the lack of support for the schools Rugby team witch my son was a part of, I also could of been more involved with the school and helped out a little more, I would have to say I am very happy with the school and the way its being run and the academics it provides.
