    "I love this school. The best thing is that the teachers are young and motivated. Someone complained that teachers are too young, but what is wrong with being young and highly motivated? most of these teachers are recent graduates from temple, or Penn state etc. I would rather have young, motivated teachers teaching my child then seasoned teachers with old ways of teaching. They have must after school classes for students who are lagging behind. Love this school."

    "Forget everything you thought you knew about Mastery Charter Schools. Introducing Mastery 3.0: the "new and improved" version, as of 2014. Mastery has thrown out its criticized but effective discipline systems of the past and replaced it with feel-good propaganda. Under Mastery 3.0, classrooms are out of control (lots of screaming; very little learning), its schools are unsafe (just in one quarter, staff were punched, attacked, and hospitalized, and there was a knife fight among students), and students are an afterthought."

    "Mastery is over-hyped. Most of the teachers are Teach for America. That means most of the teachers start without an education degree, without a teacher certification, and without any real-world teaching experience. Oh, and they also happen to be young, preppy, and recently graduated from college. This school has no idea what they are doing either. This year they have all new curriculum. So, I guess all the stuff from previous years was no good?"

    "This is a great school. My honest opinion is that if your child wants to receive an education and understands the importance of such then they will be successful. I had 2 children in Mastery, at the same time. One decided the work was too difficult, didn't like to finish assignments on time and did not want to work hard. The other was dedicated, did very well and graduated valedictorian. The success of your child really depends on he/she is and wants to become. This school gives all of the tools needed to get to college. It has it's downfalls but does a great job of compensating in other areas. Truth is, if you can't afford to pay $10,000 a year to Friends Central, Mastery is a great place. I think the school could do more to actually help kids who need tutoring. They have "after hours" which doesn't help. Tutoring should be done by people bought in for that purpose not exhausted teachers."

    "I just don't see what all the fuss is about. All I see are young, twenty-somethings with NO experience all over the school TRYING to teach my child. What ever happened to the seasoned veteran who has been teaching for a while? All I've seen is test prep, drill and kill type lessons, nothing in-depth like my daughter had before. I'm taking her back to the public school soon."
