I've been with the Rams for three years now, and overall everything, it's an amazing school for several of reasons. Their magnet program allows all electives such as dance, drama, choir, sound engineering, broadcasting, creative writing, and even sports to come together in a tiny little school! Even though it's a pretty small school, the love that the teachers give to the students is irreplaceable, especially from one of my favorite English teachers, Mr. Hill. I'm studying to be a sound engineer in the near future and with the help of the music production class with, Dr. Marsh has helped us wonders. We were able to record our original tracks that we've created on Logic or GarageBand and perform them into the sound booth. I've learned about the wiring and the music software process a little bit more, even music management.

I love The school, the teachers are outstanding, the educational system is on top. I'm getting a very good education, I'm making better grades than I did at any other school! The school has a good vibe to it, the students return home with excellency and good grades. I recommend for anyone who's interested in broadcasting, band, drama, dance, and Last but not least, Visual Arts. Would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone to apply at Arthur and Polly Mays Conservatory of the Arts. We are here to assist you at all cost!
I liked the concept of having magnets with different art forms and the camaraderie I had with the students within my own magnet and other magnets. What I would like to see changed would be less apathetic teachers who would form a closer bond with their students, as the school has a close-knit population.
