On Saturday, Jan. 20, the MAST Academy sophomore class embarked on their annual field trip to Busch Gardens.

At around 4:30 am, all students waited at MAST for the buses, ready to begin their 4-hour-long trip to Tampa Bay.

“The trip was so fun. We had so much fun riding all the rides, and I had a great time in general with all my friends,” sophomore Ana Perez said, “I’m looking forward to the next one.”

At around 7 pm, the buses began to make their journey back to school. Arriving at midnight, the students were tired after an exciting day and couldn’t wait to get home and get some rest.

“I was happy that everything went as planned; there were no major delays or issues with the buses,” Perez said.

Francesca Verdazco is a freshman at MAST Academy. This is her first year as a student at this school. Verdazco had a tough time deciding what school she wanted to attend. She was between TERRA and MAST because all her friends went to TERRA, but her sister came to MAST and loved it. She picked MAST because it is “Overall, [it's] a great school and the people here are very nice,” Verdazco said. MAST is perfect for Verdazco because she loves spending her free time at the beach or pool. Verdazco was a former volleyball player at her old school and wanted to try out for the MAST team, but the tryout dates passed before she knew it. So far, MAST has been a perfect fit for her, and she plans to have a great school year.
