Arts & Communication Magnet Academy (ACMA) High School Reviews

Most of the teachers and students that go to ACMA are very closed-minded and set in their own ways. They only want to hear their own opinion. Socially, I’m having a hard time making connections. People have become more apathetic and less passionate. Artistically, though, this school has definitely helped me improve. If it wasn’t for Mr. Brandau and his classes, I don’t think I would be the artist I am today. Unfortunately his area of teaching is way too underfunded. ACMA has the potential to be a great school, but the district cutting the funding and the lack of students that care drag this school down severely. The one wonderful thing about this school is that it’s very hard to get bullied. If I had gone to a normal high school, I probably would have been bullied relentlessly; at ACMA, I never had to experience that.

I am a recent graduate, and I think Arts and Communication Magnet Academy has fallen short on several occasions. Select teachers and directors are frankly not very good at teaching, the school offers few advanced placement classes, some arts programs revived uneven amounts of funding, the administrative and office workers are frequently rude, and I'd say the school is not very good at preparing students for college. All of that being said, some arts programs are excellent, the performance venues are wonderful spaces, and the school culture itself is very strong and unique.
I absolutely love this school- I have no complaints. Feels like a second home to me, as well as everyone else. All students support each other and create expressive art. I haven’t met one person who hasn’t fallen in love with ACMA!
