Mathematics, Science Research and Technology (MAST) High School, located in the heart of Cambria Heights, is a diverse and small learning community. As a STEAM School, our students engage in rigorous mathematics, science, or engineering courses with the arts and technology embedded within the curriculum. We believe students learn best by approaching academic and social challenges as learning opportunities. 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.
