Then you should leave and let someone else have your spot.

Or they shopuld improve the curriculum and teaching, instead of relying on high performing students to carry the reputation.

Masterman is a bought out school.. If your mother or father isn't rich your child isn't going .. I don't care how many A they get . My daughter is straight A student that is in higher grade for her age. But every year it's another excuse why she's not accepted.

Really I o to masterman and I had all a and bs when I was accepted my mom is not that rich an my dad is broke. So who really knows ? I was accepted in 6th grade. An honestly I think masterman has more   Not rich kids than rich. Maybe your daughter doesn't have charctor?

Clearly you didn't get much from the school with grammar like that.

You must have skipped the English classes.

I am a single parent with two waitress jobs. We live in Tacony, in a rented home. I have no money. My son is a 7th grade student at Masterman and loves it. He has friends from Rittenhouse, he also has friends from Olney and North Philly. What do they all have in common? They are all extremely smart, charismatic great bunch of kids!

When applying to Masterman are all of the marking periods grades looked at or just the final grades considered for acceptance? For instance I have mostly A's and a few B's for all marking periods for that past two years, but for this semester's first marking period I received a C for one of my honors class.  Will this go against me or keep me from being accepted if I keep the rest of my grades up to an A for the rest of this semester?

Yes, if you go to the middle school. No, if you don't . Sorry to burst your bubble try central.

You don't want to go to Masterman anyway.  The school is not all it is cracked up to be.  The teachers are no different than many other schools, the students are just exceptional.  They are a selective admissions school, which allows them to pick who they want to go there.

 

Submitted by Anonymous on December 2, 2014 10:43 pm

The students are just exceptional? I could obviously tell you did not matriculate in the school. I am an 8th grader taking Algebra 2, receiving 9th grade English and Social Study Courses, take Spanish 1, have a Physics and Chemistry course, all my classes are honors, and you say we are only exceptional. My PSSA percent tile has never been lower than a 99 percent tile and always distinguished honors in my report card. The teachers are great, not one single one of them has lower than a masters in there subject. This school is for the gifted, and only for the gifted. To get into the high school you must attend the middle school. Only the top 10% of the class get into the middle school.

Oh and also, you are required to take the A

gebra Keystones in 7th grade which I succesfully received a 99 percent tile on that too.
