    All my four kids have attended this school and I still have one in 8th grade. This school is wonderful! The teachers are open to the parents and challenge the kids to do what they are capable of doing. I agree that if you are not an involved parent it will impact your child's success - though that is true for any school. It is a challenging curriculum and the teachers prepare the kids for High School material. The kids become self discipline really quick and are held accountable for their work. I've seen teachers go above and beyond to help the kids get to where they need to be. I recommend this close with my eyes closed.

    My son has recently graduated from Math and Science Academy and currently attend Bishop McDevitt. My 5th grade daughter is now a student at the Academy. The school is challenging and very hands on. If you are prepared to sit at the table and really brainstorm homework and ideas with your child then this is the place for them. If your child has problems with organization and working in teams they will struggle. If you are not an involved parent this experience will be difficult for you.
