3/26/2012parentWe are in the middle school and I have to say, this is our first year and the school has amazing teachers! The curriculum is harder than at our previous private school, but the teachers make the topics more meaningful for the kids. They get them involved in learning and teach them to be responsible in their academics. They also have a ton of amazing clubs the kids can participate in before and after school, and having tutoring available daily. Their zero tolerance policy makes for a great learning environment for the kids. If you have a great kid and that you are looking for an amazing opportunity for, send them here! You won't be disappointed!
2/26/2012otherThe Teachers Are Great. But, some of the teachers give way too much homework to the students. But overall, its good.
2/21/2012parentI sent my son to Maritime due to him being bullied at our local Catholic School. He has always had good grades but has even gotten higher grades at Maritime, they strive for greatness and get it with positive rolemodels for teachers. I have received about 5 phone calls in the last 2 years to tell me how great a kid I have, he is now on NJHS and I credit this to the great staff. They are also very good with dealing with parents and you have access to all grades at your fingertips, which is great. My son has homework but nothing that is excessive, much less then his last school. I love it so much I am now enrolling my younfre son for next year.
1/8/2012teacherI am currently a student here and this school is a very hard working school , i just had a project last week and i have 2 more due this week , they dont give students enough time to complete projects , Your child WILL HAVE HOMEWORK EVERY NIGHT AND WEEKEND! I am very stressed because of alll the work they have been throwing at me!
12/7/2011parentgreat school! Very challenging coursework from forensics to Chemistry to algebra...and this is just 6th grade! Lots of clubs to get involved in as well as tutoring if needed everyday before and after school. If you are looking for a school that will continually challenge your child, and recognize them For their efforts and hard work this the place for you!
11/24/2011parentMaritime Charter School is not a good school . Some of the staff are very unprofessional, especially speaking over the telephone. I would not refer anyone to that school. How are the children supposed to learn if the adults there are not professionals.
9/5/2011parentMy daughter came to Maritime last year for 7th grade and is now getting ready to begin 8th in September. I am very happy and pleased with the quality education she is receiving at Maritime. Her teachers last year were wonderful!! They care so much about their students and want them to strive to do the very best in all areas. The dean and office staff are also very caring, friendly and understanding with parents and always there to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to another successful school year at Maritime and will continue to have my daughter continue there for high school. Thanks so much Maritime:)
1/25/2011parentI am so happy that I decided to send my daughter to Maritime. This is her first year and I see in her everyday the gift of an education that provides challenging academics, social activities, treasured resources, accountability and a fun positive, uplifting environment. Her teacher, Miss G, is wonderful. She may not realize it, but she has made a tremendous impact academically and has been a wonderful role model. Maritime is more than fortunate to have her on their team. My daughter loves school. What more can a parent ask for? Finding the right school for my daughter has meant more than any words can express. Children are our future. Thank you for the jobs that you do and for putting them first.
6/23/2010parentPhiladelphia has a great Gem in MACHS, my son just completed 5th grade (his 1st at MACHS) and he, my wife and I, truly enjoy this school. They push, intrigue and introduce the students to high expectations and I really think the children enjoy this, especially in an environment where learning is 1st and foremost. My son actually looks forward to school, and will be attending a free summer course for physics. More people should know about this school!
6/1/2009parentMaritime Academy is a tremendous school where young people are encouraged to learn to achieve at their highest potential. The middle school is especially good. There is a strict discipline code, which allows teachers to do what they are meant to do... teach!
6/1/2009parentMaritime is a wonderful school. The teachers set the bar high for student achievement. In addition, teachers are hard-working and caring. The strict discipline policy creates a comfortable learning environment so teachers teach and students learn.

6/16/2008parentI posted back in September after back to school night. Both my child and I were quite anxious about her going into 7th grade in a new school. But the worry was for nothing. This has been a very positive year for my child. Compared to her last school, she described Maritime as more challenging but more interesting too. She loved both her teachers, Mr. DiLeo and Mrs. Clarke and she made many new friends. I, too, was very happy having a child come home from school everyday looking forward to going back the next day. It's only June 16th and she's already wishing she was back in school. Thank you Maritime.
3/29/2008parentThis is my son's second year at Maritime. My husband and I have been very pleased with the school and staff. The campus is beautiful and safe.
