    "There are a variety of teaching styles that can be found in Masterman. Some prefer to teach straight from the textbook with a bit of supplementary information while others like to deviate almost completely from the textbook. They have to follow the curriculum but they are willing to slow the lessons down as much as possible to help the students who have trouble understanding. If this still does not work, they are willing to either offer their own time to tutor the student or they will refer the student to a more advanced student who could help. Their grading methods are generally transparent and easy to understand- and impossible to argue. They respond to questions promptly and are almost always available to students."

    "We have great academics but Masterman is mainly a preparatory school focused on the maths and sciences. We do not have many electives but this is also partly due to our size. Our schedules are basically made for us and until junior year, we have no say in what our classes will be. Then, in junior year, we get to choose whether or not we want to take up to 2 AP classes. In senior year, we get a maximum of 3 AP classes and 2 electives. The NHS offers tutoring at lunch and after school to all students and during the weeks leading up to midterms and exams, there is a reserved "Procrastination Station" in the library."

    "Masterman is ranked as one of the top schools in our state so naturally, you'd expect it to be highly competitive but that isn't the case at all. My school is a small one that is incredibly close-knit. Even when you have your own personal circle of friends, there is no fear of being rejected by any of the other students as they are all friendly. I have friends from all the grades in the high school. The teachers are wonderful and if you have a problem or just want to talk to someone, you can always go to one of them. If the students are competitive, it is never about grades. Instead, it seems that all our competitiveness is concentrated during Spirit Week, my favorite time of the year. Everywhere you go in the school, there is a of blue and white clothes. Chants of "White Team" and "Blue Team" war during breaks. Even the teachers get involved, siding with the teams their advisories are on. It is an amazing thing to witness. Many of us jokingly complain about the "faults" we find with our school, like the lack of proper temperature control, the horribly long commute times, the stairs, and the lack of space, but we wouldn't trade this school experience for any other."

    "Masterman is a great school! The academics are the best and the sports games are always fun to go to. The upgraded Spirit Week with field day is really great. It's a good school overall, but would do better with a new or upgraded building. It's good because everyone feels like family."
