Open Quote Update from my previous post: My son finished his 1st year at MCST with a major in Computers. We guessed right in what we thought the school would be like both in the positives and the negatives but overall we are extremely pleased with our choice. The + are that my son totally loves going to school, he loves his major, loves learning, the teachers are excellent, my son has a lot of pride in his school, the drama club is fantastic and there isn't a lot of clicks at the school. The negatives (which we had guessed correctly beforehand) was that the leadership (communication, principal, etc.) is poor and it is hard for the MCST kids to get together outside of school. The school does a poor job of having dances or social gathering. Yes, my son has developed friendships at MCST but not as many as if he had stayed at his home school of Kinnelon ( which is also a very good school). On a positive note about social is that the MCST students appear to be very good kids who don't get into trouble. The best part about MCST is that it like going to college in that MOST kids really care about their education because they are focusing on something they enjoy and again. Close Quote

Open Quote Lots of amazing, attentive teachers, flexible and encouraging counselors/administration, campus energy, small class sizes, project-based learning style (as opposed to solely testing), technology-integrated assignments, and amazing CTE program... but lacks AP classes, there is inequality in grade weighting between academies, and there are very few extra-curricular programs (ex. no FBLA, NFHS, Academic Bowl, Math team, Art Club, Interact Club, Science Bowl, etc).

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
