  • The school is decent. Educationally its behind. As a student I think the teaching standards should be high! Its very easy to pass this high school. If your child is academically doing well...DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL AT ALL!!

  • Mather is a great school. It is better now than when I first started because it is cleaner and the principal is doing a lot of work to fix it up. We have good teachers and clubs and sports. I'm glad I came here.
