Arts & Communication Magnet Academy (ACMA) High School Reviews

ACMA is a really interesting school. It offers all the basic high school classes, as well as elective arts pathway courses in Visual, Performance, and Communications arts. I, personally, am on a Vocal Music pathway. Even though the choir teacher is not the best, the experience is good to have. ACMA is a pretty diverse school, it's very LGBT-friendly, etc. With teachers and quality of classes, it's really a coin flip. Some teachers are FANTASTIC and their classes are amazing. Some teachers, not so much. One thing I would like to see change in is more variety in non-arts classes. A lot of our alumni go into nursing/medical/engineering/psychology programs, but we have no classes covering any of those, save for the bare minimum of required science classes. As someone who would enjoy going into a science or medical career, I would like to have more variety in those regards. Other than that, ACMA is a really interesting school. It's not perfect, but it's good.

It's bad if you have a disability, medical condition, less money for xtra tutoring/lessons. Of course at the time, this was not due to the teachers/students. Mainly the Vice Principle and Counselor, who actively sought to rid the school of such students. The environment they created affected the positive aspects of the school. Once they retire, hopefully a more human approach to administration will occur and I would then recommend the school. If you are already smart, talented, healthy and popular, you will do great!
ACMA is one the most inclusive places I've ever been. Everyone is allowed to be whatever they want to be. Most of the teachers are fantastic and I'm definitely going to visit after I graduate. The school work can be both challenging and easy, mostly depending on the class and teacher. There's no dress code and we are very adamant that it stays that way. The only problems I have with it are that middle schoolers suck, it's an old school, and several of the bathroom stalls don't lock. Despite those things, I love it here and even when I had the chance to leave, I decided to stay mostly for the people.
