    "Unlike many other public high school's with your typical average number of 1,000 students or less, Marine Math and Science Academy is a far more different structured high school that acknowledges a different way in teaching. I'm a freshman at MMSA, and not only just focusing on the discipline format, MMSA teachers and our principle Fred Aguirre, all put in their effort to maintain the structured high school. With their support, they help us to prepare us, the youth, for the "big test" that counts, which is our Junior year ACT test. It demands a force of effort to try the best we could in testing, as the ACT reflects upon our future in career management and the position we stand for the career we decide to chose. This is just my beginning at MMSA, and I believe that with my effort and the support of the teachers and including my principle, MMSA will help my reach for success! -Thank you"

    "Parents need research the school before sending their son/daughter to the school. We don't have a lot of kids who could have went to Whitney Young because those students are at the schools rated higher. We have a few students who selected us over Whitney Young. Parents need to get involve and be apart of their son/daughter education. We are a good school and one of the top 25 schools in the Chicago area. Lets keep it real parents (if you can send your child to a better school then that's your option.) Don't complain if you are not part of your child education and trying to volunteer at the school."

    "MMA: By the numbers All of the information I am offering can be found on our website (www.marinemilitary.org) or the CPS High School Directory at http://www.cps.edu/SiteCollectionDocuments/HighSchoolDirectoryEnglish.pdf Extracurricular Activities: 14 sports, 5-10 clubs Attendance: Usually between 89-92%. Students Making Expected Gains on State Standardized Tests (EXPLORE, PLAN, PSAE): 49% (31st in CPS) Average ACT: Practice ACT's have predicted our first class to score in the high 16's, low 17's. This would rank us in the 20-25 highest scores in CPS Average Days Absent for students: 14 18th out of 104 CPS High Students Reporting Participation in Extracurricular Activities: 93% Students Reporting a Safe and Respectful School Climate: 84% Students Reporting Academic Rigor at School: 95% This is the highest percentage in CPS. Teachers that the state reports as 'Highly Qualified: 100% PARENTS reporting satisfaction as 'Adequate or Excellent': 88%"

    "My daughter is a 2nd year cadet and I'm not impressed. The CPS leadership is non existent!! There is no accountability for the level of education the cadets are to receive. The Marine Corp component is very good, but if you want a college prep program, MMA isn't it. It's easy to out perform Crane, but it would be the parents hope to out perform Whitney Young. This is the only school in the CPS system that is on a 4x4 block schedule. That means that you condense 1 years worth of coureswork into 6 months. Arguably, our teenages don't have the attention span to sit in 1 class for 85 minutes and remember it all and barely have homework."

    "I think this is a good school iam a freshmen and i think that the education is better than something you will get at crane and the teachers do care about you. I think that this school is far more better than your regular neighborhood schools."
