About This School

Mainland Preparatory Academy is located in Lamarque, TX and is in Mainland Preparatory Academy School District. It is a charter school that serves 438 students in grades PK-8.

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 Mainland Preparatory Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

In 2011, Mainland Preparatory Academy had 11 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Texas average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Mainland Preparatory Academy Reviews

Unhappy parent review

By a Parent on

This school focuses on curriculum, it does not have sports for kids. Students are taught reading and writing at an early age but lack critical thinking skills and creativity.

The communication between school teachers and administrative staff to parents is poor. Grammar and writing used by teachers and administrative staff is poor. I don't believe that a child can learn something accurately when their own teacher cannot write out a correct assignment.

Lastly, the grades shown on progress reports and school website do not coincide with the grades sent home. I cannot agree with a child's grade being changed to reflect that of a passing grade when the child does not understand the material.

Although Mainland Prep Academy is a better school than the ones in the local area, I believe there are schools from which any child will benefit much more. There are better schools in League City, Clear Lake, and Houston.
