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. See Miami Arts Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Miami Arts Charter School Reviews
It's my son's first year at MAC and everyday is an adventure! He comes home and shares all the great experiences he's part of in both the academics and music/theatre classes. The teachers are professional and accessible - always willing to hear parents' concerns. Classwork is challenging and relevant. Although MAC's Theatre program is tightly-run, I'd like to see an extra drama/acting teacher hired so that students may get more practice/performance opportunities. One theatre teacher (although very knowledgable), is not enough for both middle and high school. Other than that, Miami Arts Charter is an amazing school!
