    "My child has been attending Mesa Academy for 2 years. It has been a struggle since the beginning. The expectations are very high for even advanced students. There is minimal direction given by the science instructors and they are cold and unhelpful. For example, the first year, 4th grade, my child was expected to invent something. My child is very bright but asking a 9 year old to invent something with minimal instruction was a bit much. Every year we have gone to the principal to discuss our concerns and went away feeling reassured and confident to later be disappointed when promises were not followed through. I was also surprised to find out that this school didn't have parent teacher conferences. My child would be doing excellent in classes and then the final grades would be sent home and he was failing. I never received any calls from his teachers or guidance counselor. Getting in touch with the teachers took days and they didn't seem interested in helping my child succeed. If your 9 year old can function as a high school student then this might be the school for your child. If your child needs more direction and encouragement then you may need to keep looking."

    "I used to go to the Mesa Academy, and I can honestly say that it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me, but before saying anything too convincing, you should know this school is not for those not ready for a challenge. This is a school where everyone can be friends, the principal knows every last student by name, where you get a special academic edge, and if you're struggling, you can ask any single of the teachers for extra help."

    "My child is a 6th grader at MAAS and absolutely loves it. This is her 2nd year at The Academy and it just keeps getting better. The teachers are very approachable and willing to give extra help if needed. The after school activities are varied enough to appeal to all students. The staff and principal are wonderful. I highly recommend this school to any family who wants their child to be challenged and grow both academically and socially."

    "My daughter has just started her second year at Mesa Academy and is more excited about returning than she was about starting her first year. She was previously enrolled in a 5 Star Charter School (according to Great Schools ratings) where she skipped second grade. After interviewing with the school, we were fearful that she might not do well with already advanced students who were also a year older than she, but in the interest of her getting the best education possible, we enrolled her in Mesa Academy. She wound up getting the President's Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement at the end of the school year due in no short measure to the quality and attention of the administration, the teachers, and of course her parents! Mesa Academy is indeed a GREAT SCHOOL, but we as parents must also take an active role in our children's education, and recognize both their talents AND weaknesses, and not always blame the institution for their shortcomings. Mesa Academy is not for all students...only those capable of participating in advanced studies...not whining about curriculum, homework, note-taking, the prinicpal and/or teachers."

    "To people who think that students that go to this school only study is wrong. I am currently a student in the 7th grade at the Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies, and I have been here for 3 years. Students here don't get a lot of homework and you do NOT only take notes and study. Personally, I only take about two hours, and the rest of the day I can do whatever I want. Sure, two hours is a lot, but it's not studying the whole day. My friends also don't have that much homework. In fact, they have only about an hour or less. If a student does just study all day, that means they don't know how to organize their time. I would recommend this school to anyone."
