[ARCHIVED] Mast@Homestead Recognized by Councilman Elvis Maldonado for 2013 Merit School of Excellence Award

Committed to bringing attention to educational excellence in the Homestead Community, Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado, Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee recognized Mast@Homestead for receiving the 2013 Merit School of Excellence Award.

“It is important that we highlight schools like Mast@Homestead whenever they are nationally recognized,” said Councilman Maldonado. “It is an honor to have a school like this right here in our own backyard, where every student I have ever spoken to has confidence in the education they receive and in their future in the work force.”

At a special presentation of the March 20th Homestead City Council meeting Councilman Maldonado read a letter from the Executive Director of Magnet Schools of America congratulating Mast@Homestead for winning the 2013 Merit School of Excellence Award. The City of Homestead and the Homestead Education Committee also presented Principal Lisa Noffo and Lead magnet teacher Nicole Martinez of Mast@Homestead with an additional award for being selected for one of the highest awards a Magnet School can receive.

Mast@Homestead is an “A” school and is located in the former Arthur J. Smith Memorial Hospital. The Medical Academy for Science and Technology specializes in the Biomedical, Pharmaceutical, and Physical Therapy fields of study. It is also the first medical magnet school in south Florida and one of six schools in Florida to win the National Merit School of Excellence award.

The Magnet Schools of Merit Award recognizes member magnet schools/programs that demonstrate a high commitment to academic standards, curriculum innovation, desegregation/diversity efforts, specialized teaching staffs, and parent and community involvement.
