What I love best about Classical Magnet High, is the learning environment, the school is not a large one but it’s is rich in diversity and the amazing support you received by teachers and faculty is very strong. There is alway resources that will help with your academic endeavors if you are will to put in the work . At the earliest stage of learning 6thgrade there is a unknown sense of self awareness that is instilled in you with you realizing it there is pride about the work you put forth that gives you a sense of great accomplishment. Teaches are always there to guide you no matter how easy or difficult the work maybe, this is why I am able to accomplish my goals!

It’s a pretty well-rounded school with a couple of flaws. The administration has gotten much better with the new principal, but the teachers stayed the same there hasn’t been many improvements of getting more teachers in the school when we went through budget cuts a couple years ago, leaving some classrooms empty and others packed. The only extracurricular are sports, student gov, theater, or band you have to find something outside of school for anything specific. There are some really fantastic teachers in there and some are just average. There’s no AP classes, and a few ECE classes so not much room for rigorous ones. If you want a school that’s better for credit classes dual-enrollment at HMTCA or UHSSE is much better.
Without Classical's curriculum I wouldn't be prepared for college. All classes were honor classes. It was very diverse, students from different towns attended. The enrichment after school activities help students build social skills. Getting to interact with the different grade was the best part. Classical was very diverse but everyone felt like family, there was no one left out.
