My experience at CMAB is really good but at the same time bad. Good because you get to do things some other high schools don't like compete in drill competitions or go on spring break trips and all kinds of stuff and also get cool opportunities. Bad because obviously there's always drama in a school(not saying we have drama all the time)and that tends to make you lose interest in school cause most of the time you're probably thinking about a situation. So something I would like to see change at CMAB is the attitude that people bring because life is too short to be worrying about someone who might not even be in your life forever.

One thing about my school is that it has great teachers, teachers that support you and always want to help you out. I would have hoped the school was a little different, but of course it was better than other choices. I am proud of what the school has taught me about leadership skills and even improve my communication skills. Chicago Military Academy has taught me the basic needs of succeeding. Due to this school I have improved on myself.
My experience with this school was great from freshmen year to senior year I wanted to try something different since it was a military school and that's what i got the cool teaches you values and leadership and teamwork and all the others army values while still teaching your your regular classes and the school also gives you responsibility since we can earn rank and each rank requires a certain job and task to carry out just like you would in the service or reserves and another thing i enjoyed was the sports I played football and the brother hood and foundation will forever be cemented with those guys.But my favorite thing was being rewarded and with rank and medals and ribbons since its so many different ones.
