  • I loved MSAS. I felt like know one cared about me until I was sent to MSAS. The county school I attended told my mom I should go to MSas because it was a school who worked with kids like me. I was angry Iwas made fun of and teachers told me I neede to be in special ed. I went to Mrs. Jolly's school and I began to feel like I was just like everybody else. it took some time but she met with me weekly and really cared about how I felt. For parents who think your child doe not learn by going to the movies you have no idea the reseach and standards we have to meet before we get to attend. Mr. J does research and actuly uses state standards for us to meet. I think he makes learning fun and sees things we like and helps us learn by using them. We have to read the books that go with the movie before we go to the movie, write our own plays and songs. If you think that's easy try it. I left MSAS an B student I finished midlde school an A-B student and guess what my teachers all were amazed at my creativity. Thank you Mrs. Jolly and Mr. J and all the staff for caring about me.

  • Becayse they are a Charter school, they have different rules than the pulbic schools. Pretty much, the principal is the QUEEN BEE and what she says goes. She nor any of the teachers feel they need to explain why they didn't protect your child from being bullied. Oh yes, the school has a MAJOR bullying problem and there are students there whose hearts are filled with racial hatred and these students attack others with their hurtful words. NOTHING is done about it. I'm pulling my child out of there.

  • This school has some very good teachers, but unfortunately, the principal is a joke. She allows her son to teach fifth grade even though he has no clue on how to instruct students. Took my kid out in November and the poor child had to play catchup because mr. jolly was more into taking the students to the movies than actually teaching them anything.

  • The teacher's are great but the principal makes the environment so bad that learning is no longer the focus. I had to take my son out because he was getting permission slip forms to see High School Musical 3 and Madagasgar 2 when they should be preparing for FCAT.

  • This school has been a blessing for my child. He was so behind at his other school, that I did not know what to do. When I enrolled him at MSAS at the beginning of this school year, I was very pleased. He received in school tutoring, computer programs, and he actually thinks learning is fun. Now, he is reading on grade level! The dedication of the teachers and principal is outstanding!

  • I took my girls out of a very prominent public school and placed them in MSAS 2 years ago. My oldest daughter was on the verge of failing 2 of her subjects and having to repeat that grade. Since at MSAS she has improved trmendously and brought her overall average up to a B+. The staff at MSAS is remarkable. Not only do they have love for their students but also the time and patience it takes to be exceptional teachers. Both of my girls love to go to school everyday and make excuses when their sick to try to get me to let them go to school anyway. Thats saying something. To Mrs. Jolly and her whole staff......thank you, thank you, thank you and keep up the great work that you do at MSAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
