The Academy of Medical Arts at Carson High School is known for its academics and volunteer opportunities. To do well, you must be diligent. High school was definitely a challenge for me because my personal life affected me turning in assignments, in-turn lowering my grades. The teachers taught courses well, offered tutoring often, and focused on preparing their students for college. The clubs and activities offered at the academy were organized, purposeful, and even enjoyable. Students and staff were almost always friendly and obtained good spirit. If I could do it all over again, I would in order to bring my grades and tell myself not to give up. I would like to change how much homework we are given. Students do have personal lives, are involved in sports/clubs/activities, and taking honors and AP courses at this academy. The teachers can sometimes overload us with work, possibly not realizing that we have homework from other classes as well.
Review Academy of Medical Arts at Carson High School
At the academy of medical arts they challenge us to be the best students around. Our academy has the best test scores on our campus. Although we are a little low on funds and resources, they make sure we get the best education possible. The faculty and staff are caring and spend extra time before and after school to make sure we get the extra help and support we need. They are all so caring and determined. At my school, we are know for our professionalism and wherever we go we leave an impact and everyone knows that we are there.
My school is currently on probation for unknown reasons. We have teachers who are not qualified to teach AP level classes and there are plenty of budget deficits that are preventing students from learning to their full potential. In my period 2 Ceramics class, there are little to no resources for my class and a donation fund is being held but no one is donating. Parent involvement is not seen at the school.
