    My son is a freshmen and he just switced to MST Prep from Amherst HS and what a culture shock it was for me as a parent! The entire staff is struggling to control the student body as well as implement the college prep curriculum they so proudly rave about. The rank given to MST Prep by this site is an accurate reflection of the school as a whole. Because we are in a transition - moving to another state - I am so glad to say that my son will not attend this HS next year.
