    "My school is a relatively new school in that it was once St. Joseph's School which Mater Beach Academy now leases. We have had to overcome may obstacles and make many repairs. As a Charter School, we are not fully funded as are the Public Schools and are dependent on the parents to help supplement supplies, donate time (volunteer hours) and materials. Through it all, the Principal, Administration, Teachers and Staff are dedicated, devoted and focused on given our children the best education possible. I have never seen such happy, eager to teach instructors before. We are definitely a "family" oriented school and are treated as such. I could not hope for a better school for my children to attend."

    "It saddens me to read some of the reviews of parents who might of never given this school a fair chance. When the previous school closed, Mater Beach welcomed me and I have been with them since. After MANY changes to the school, ie smart boards in every classroom, computers in every classroom (even the prek) New cafeteria, New park, New garden I can go on and on the school has made a 360! I have two children, one in elementary and another in middle. Classroom management is great, EVEN if the class is large. A LOT of homework.... yes... good, helps them learn! The Principal is VERY nice, low key (confused her at first as an office employee greeting people as they walk into the lobby of the school). I might have had some suggestions/complaints in the past, but I always addressed them and got/found a solution. I am VERY happy, I don't listen to people's negative opinions, I give it a shot and see for myself... I'm glad I did."

    "Over crowded and unorganized are the nicest words I can use. Cirriculum is absurd. School is falling apart and dirty. Principle is barely visable. Leaves a parent to wonder WHO is representing "OUR" school and where is the funding for charter schools going too. After school activities are a joke. Not sure if the instructors are even qualified. Make this a private school again with small classrooms, a personable staff, and a family environment where parents are kept up to date on the day to day functions and improvements because IT IS OUR BUSINESS !"

    "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."

    "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?"
