Our School Vision
Mastery schools are joyful, authentic communities where students learn how to think critically and act independently so they are truly prepared for postsecondary success.
Student achievement is the civil rights issue of our time and the reason we exist. Each staff member is responsible for our students’ success.
We serve students and their families first. Our business is their success.
We do the right thing. We are fair and treat folks with respect.
Our students’ futures are at stake – we don’t give up. We do more with less. If it doesn’t work, we fix it. We find a way.
Our positive, caring culture supports student and staff success. We like fun. We love to laugh.
We face reality, communicate honestly and respectfully, and hold each other accountable.
Everybody is welcome to talk to anybody. We are open and transparent.
We seek a better way – always. We are engaged in an ongoing cycle of goal setting, action, measurement, and analysis.
We are in this together. We may disagree, but at the end of the day, we support each other 100%.

I have been working at Mastery Charter School full-time (More than 8 years)
Mastery is full of passionate, intelligence, and dedicated teachers and administrates. Its value of "student achievement above all" drives all decisions. Mastery provides its teachers with a tremendous amount of support and assistance.
The level of support and knowledge among administrators varies greatly.
Advice to Management
Ensure that all APIs are held to the same standards and offer the same level of support and feedback to ensure that all teachers feel supported.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mastery Charter School (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2017.
Very misleading. Don’t apply unless your current employer knows your looking for another job!!!
First a ten minute phone interview then about two weeks later e-mail generated request for an in-person interview. Directions called for a demo lesson for thirty but once I arrived changed to less than ten students! First red flag. After the demo lesson was completed there was a debriefing on pros and cons on the lesson. Was told I would hear back within two weeks on if they are moving forward.
Received an e-mail that my references were being checked then it was down hill from there. Second red flag two weeks past after my references were checked as in my current employer informed then complete silence. There is no physical person to contact and your only able to send e-mails about your questions concerning your application status!!
A week of chain e-mailing only to find out the recruiter handling my application didn’t work there any more which was very sketchy . It is now 30 days after my interview and someone finally responded stating my information has been forwarded to two schools and a decision will be made by the end of the week not!?
Two months later received a generic e-mail stating the position was given to someone else.
Very confusing and misleading. I’ve never had a potential employer check my references and not offer employment.
Keep looking don’t waste your time!!!!!!!!
