Both my kids are attending this school since August at PK-3 and PK-4. The school is very community focused and teachers are really committed to the kids. The school has a lot of parent involvement and is always doing activities with parents such as breakfasts, shows and lunches. PK classes are very nice. ...  Read more

We have been trying to get our daughter into this school for 3 years, we are in the correct district but always seem to not get selected during the time of the Lottery. It is disheartening to hear from other parents who got their children into the school that there is favoritism during the admission ...  Read more

He just finished PreK4 and could not ask for more dedicated and loving teachers. Ms. Lorenzo and Ms. Gonzalez have been amazing. The education level ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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.
