    "I'm a highschooler at Masterman. I saw that some people were saying Masterman pressures its students too much so that it can keep a high reputation. That's simply not true. All kids need some pressure to stay focused. Contrary to popular belief Masterman does not just teach kids how to take standardized test. It teaches its students the general knowledge they need to do well in college. If your lazy, your not going to like Masterman. End of story."

    "Masterman is a really good school. I like it , it's really diverse, the teachers actually want you to succeed, there are many sports and the building I pretty big and there are many opportunities for you to get tutoring if you need it.There are different clubs like the debate team, Odyssey of the Mind (Robotics) and many others. Another thing is there you won't have to worry about kids fighting in the halls or random class disruptions due to mouthy students. Masterman is a really good school but I have been told that it's not for everyone."

    "Masterman is an all together great school, but ITS FIFTH GRADE OR BUST. If you're not accepted to Masterman in grades 5 or 6 you most likely will not be accepted to the High School. Only 100 students are accepted into the high school each year and they most choose from the 200 8th graders here. Many advanced classes but unlike Central you cannot graduate with a Bachleor degree from Masterman. Middle school has a limited amount of clubs and most of the focus is on the high school but we're the best in PA for a reason! BTW PARENTS by sending your child here they will have completed Algebra 1 (1/3 of the eight graders complete Algebra 2, I was one of them) so that means they will have their Algebra 1 keystone out of the way and they will have also completed either Spanish 1 or French 1 (it's a lottery to see what language you have)"

    "It's the best high school in the state. You can research the stats anywhere. However, it's a magnet school for the district and very selective for entrance."
