My child's school is Myron B. Thompson Academy Public Charter School. She was enrolled midyear and the staff and teachers did a fabulous job of integrating her into their community. The teachers were extremely professional and quite skilled in producing the best from each individual student. A fabulous school.

MBTA is an excellent school. I am very impressed by the Principal. She took the time to meet my child and welcome her into the school. The school is striving to be exceptional and grow. The teachers are so supportive and involved with my daughters progress and as a result she is excelling and excited about academics. With the online format my child has the option of taking extra courses rather than be stuck in only having time for core coursework. This school simply emanates a positive learning environment and my child is very happy to attend.
MBTA is a great school for any parent who wants to see their child excel in academics as well as in their personal well-being. From the principal to the teachers they look out for your child's best interest and will make the time to meet with parents. If you are not looking for a traditional public school unable to afford private school or currently homeschooling your child but looking for a smaller setting (online) MBTA may be the school for your child. -Tiffany Parent
MBT is fabulous. The teachers provide a strong support system for a homeschool parent and they are always providing me with positive feedback on my children but they also let me know ways they can improve and methods to help them. I can honestly say that without their support I probably would not have homeschooled my kids again this year. My children love going to class or activities there whenever they have the opportunity.
This is a wonderful school for self motivated students who want to pursue their interests in depth.
Its the perfect school for me because I can pursue my career in acting and travel without having to drop out or having to homeschool.
I think this is one of the best schools on Oahu for any parent not able to afford private school and having a child that is no longer challenged at their present school. Our son received a fine education and had caring attentive teachers. The principle is highly motivated and skilled at bringing programs to the students allowing them a great place to learn and grow. Each student receives a laptop or desktop depending on their grade level and every opportunity to excel in this school environment.While there was not a large amount of extracurricular activities during our sons years due to the school being new they have worked very hard in this area and have improved greatly. Like most schools the level of parent involvement is uneven but the parents that do attend meeting are trying their best to help the school grow and improve. I highly recommend this school
