Open House & Orientation

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.


We would love to show you around our campus and introduce you to our teachers and scholars! Please join us for an in-person Open House (see below for dates). However, if you are too busy or unable to travel to our location, we still want to give you a glimpse of the MAST HS experience through a virtual visit. We have several different opportunities including: virtual middle school visits, virtual open houses, and one-on-one virtual meetings.

Upcoming Open House/Orientation DatesWE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!

Join us to meet our School Community, Principal, Assistant Principals, Outstanding Staff, and Talented Students. You can join us in person on any of the days offered below.




The MAST HS team including a Student Panel will walk you through the admissions process and answer questions you may have about what it’s like to be a student at MAST High School. We will arrange with the administration or guidance team to virtually visit your school.
