As a STEAM School, our students engage in rigorous mathematics, science, or engineering courses with the arts and technology embedded within the curriculum.

MAST HS is a place where students explore and seek solutions for challenges they face in our technologically-advanced world. Our students have the opportunity to affirm themselves, discover their passions, and apply what they know through hands-on project-based learning which require critical thinking, collaboration and communication.
