My experience at my school was amazing! I exchanged from the Chambersburg Senior High School to the Magnet School. The
environment was very welcoming. The teachers were very nice as well as the classmates. It was quite a change because the school is technology oriented and the school I transferred from wasnt. They taught me what I needed to know to be successful. It overall was a great experience.

I had a great time at the Chambersburg Area Career Magnet school! The teachers there care significantly about their students and the material they are teaching. Attending the school, you get a sense of community
The greatest thing about the Magnet School is our smaller student body and our incredible teachers! They really care about their students and they want to see you succeed now and in the future. Overall, I believe this school has a great atmosphere. Every year, we hold CMStival at the end of the year, which is a day of activities and class games pitting the graduating years against each other as teams in activities such Kahoots, a mud run, and last year we had a scooter race! This school is great for students who work well with technology and there are plans to add even more technology-based courses in the near future; all of our work is done on iPads and teachers communicate about assignments over iTunesU and e-mails. It's not hard to get in touch with teachers if you need help, either. They are willing to work with you, so if you need help with anything, just reach out! I would highly recommend the Magnet School to anyone!
