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.

Mastery Charter High School Reviews
This school is TERRIBLE! If you want your child to have hours of homework, a back breaking schedule and stress in order to adhere to rules that make absolutely no sense, then send them here! I can guarantee that your child will learn absolutely nothing. The school prides themselves on having a bunch of rules that dont have anything to do with education. For ex.: All the students must gather together in the morning and say somehtng along the lines of," I am happy and willing to be here." And if they dont, they're automatically in trouble. They have to be through the doors by a certain time. 25 seconds late? Dont matter. All these things dont matter if when the kids do show up, they dont learn anything. The school starts in August and ends in almost July. The send the kids home early every single Wednesday at 12-130pm. But then the kids have mandatory saturday school on certain days. ????????????????????? Am i the only one who thinks they outta keep the kids in school for the whole day and teach em then? I guess so. Furthermore, the kids are disrespectful. Last summer, the kids form this school were involved in a flash mob beating that was on the news for a few days straight. Great going "Mastery". (and the uniforms are super expensive and they charge you a dollar if you forget your ID) smh @ this school.
it's a great high school for us student because im a student there
