    "My child cries everyday not wanting to go to school. This has never happened before. The teachers are constantly yelling and at times a bit rude to parents.Parents and teachers should work as a team. This is not the case in this school. Should be a public school not a charter school."

    "Mater Academy Miami Beach has the most dedicated Principal, teachers, and administrative staff I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Every teacher is happy to be there and eager to teach. It is a small school compared to the Public Schools but has more of a "family" attitude and relationship with the students and parents. Because we are a "Charter School" we do not get 100% funding from the School Board and the parents help by making donations of supplies. The teachers also dig deep into their pockets and help with supplies. We are located in a middle to lower class neighborhood and there are many students whose family cannot afford to donate any items to the school making it necessary for the teachers and other parents to donate more. The school building is over 50 years old and is rented. With it's limited resources it has and continues to maintain and beautify the school to the best of it's ability by painting, planting gardens, upgrading the playground area, etc. In spite of all of our short comings, it has managed to become an "A" school in the short time of it's existence due to the principal and faculty's hard work and dedication."

    "There is a lot to be desired for this school. I was under the impression that charter schools offer smaller class sizes than traditional public schools. Definitely not the case here. Some classes are 40+ students with 2 teachers. I was a straight A student and I would have trouble concentrating in such an environment. Not to mention recess for lower elementary grades is 15 minutes! Try that with a student that needs to move around more and has focus issues. Let's not get into the unhealthful habits of tremendous amounts of candy, soda and junk food for any given event, holiday, birthday etc. And the vending machines which sell the same... It's 2013, get a nutritional clue! I was so displeased with this school that I withdrew my child after 2 1/2 years and severely regret ever enrolling her and wish I had given Biscayne Elementary a chance, which I just might do. This school is the epitome of A Race to Nowhere, they decided to cram a 9th grade class in the facility already housing pre-k 3 up to 8th grade. Can anyone say $$$ greed?"

    "My daughter has attended Mater Beach for two years now, and I am quite happy with it. As a new school, it is constantly improving. The teachers have done a good job of pushing my child to a 'beyond grade' level."
