Reviews

Rachel - Current CMASAS Student

Having gone to Christa McAuliffe School of Arts and Sciences before, I know that they're really good about helping the students and caring for their educational needs. But after two years at that...delightful place, this amazes me. At my other online school, you weren't even allowed to skip a lab if you already understood the concept, and now here I am at a different school where they're willing to alter the entire course to make it more practical-science-y. I can't even express how much I love this!! Putting the passion and love back into learning!

CMASAS Student

One thing I have to say about CMASAS is that there is a great deal of student/teacher interaction. I attended another online school my freshman year of high school and I rarely had my questions answered within an acceptable time frame.

CMASAS Student

CMASAS DEFINITELY lives up to the goals they claim. Many of the classes definitely can be challenging, through-provoking, and inspiring. The only time a class is going to be easy is if someone already has the knowledge of it, but needs to go through that class to get to the more advanced level. Of course, that's where the personalized classes come in!

Do Schools Kill Creativity? Let's Discuss.

Do Schools Kill Creativity? Let's Discuss.

February 22, 2017

Do Schools Kill Creativity? It’s an incendiary question, so no wonder Sir Ken Robinson’s TED Talk on the subject is one of the top 20 most-watched talks in the world. He says that with the rapidly evolving technical world and shifting job-market/demand, “my contention is that creativity now is as important in education as literacy.”

What do you think? Do schools kill creativity? Mind you, this question isn’t meant to denigrate educators who work tirelessly to find new and creative ways to transmit material. The question Sir Ken Robinson brings up is whether the educational system itself is set up for students to flex their creative muscles in the same way they learn their multiplication tables.

He argues it isn’t.

Sir Ken Robinson believes that our current public education system is not designed to value creativity. This is shown by how we have come to stigmatize mistakes, not only in education, but in the way we run our companies. Allowing mistakes, allowing oneself to be wrong so students can learn to fail forward and transform failure into feedback is a crucial part of education. It is the only real way to explore one’s creativity. Unfortunately, in the age of Common Core and standardized testing, making mistakes is something the institution of education simply doesn’t allow time for.

He says, “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original… We’re now running national education systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make. And the result is that we are educating people out of their creative capacities.”

Marie's Story: Withdrawing My Daughter From Public School

Marie's Story: Withdrawing My Daughter From Public School

February 18, 2017

Public school wasn't working for my daughter. Depression, sickness, missing more school than she was attending all because of the stress of public school – these reasons were what started my search for better schooling options for my daughter.

At public school, she stayed up until 2 am to complete homework. Yes, she still got A's, but they were hard won.

Perhaps my story isn't so different from your own. I don’t know your circumstance; maybe your child was or is being bullied in public school, maybe they need a flexible schedule due to a tight demands of acting auditions, or a grueling practice schedule due to their sports goals.

Regardless, I'd like to share a few tips I learned when transitioning my daughter to CMASAS. Please consider passing these on to someone you know who could benefit from my message.

What I Learned from 100 Days of Rejection

What I Learned from 100 Days of Rejection

February 16, 2017

When was the first time you felt rejected? You likely remember it well. Rejection is a form of trauma for us. It feels awful, so it makes sense why we’d want to avoid it at all costs. But what if we didn’t?

Jia Jiang spent his life terrified of rejection. He had big dreams, but every time he got shot down, he’d run instead of engage. Until one day, he discovered RejectionTherapy.com by Canadian entrepreneur Jason Comely. “The basic idea is: for thirty days, you go out and look for rejection.” And that’s exactly what he did. Only, he upped the ante.

Jia decided to seek out rejection for 100 days… and video blog the whole thing. Day one? Ask a stranger for $100 dollars. Denied. Day two? Request a “burger refill.” Nope. Day three? Ask for donuts that look like the Olympic rings. And here’s where it got interesting. The baker was so intrigued by the challenge, she took out her sketch pad, came up with a design, and fifteen minutes later, presented him with a color-matched donut replica of the Olympic rings.

The vlog got over 5 million views on YouTube.

And that’s when Jia realized: “If I didn’t run if I get rejected, I could actually turn a ‘no’ into a ‘yes’... and the magic word is: WHY.” He learned that if he mentioned a doubt the other person might have, he gained their trust, and was more likely to get them to say yes. And more importantly, “I learned I could fulfill my life dream… by asking.”
