Communication & Media Arts High School Reviews
I am an alumni of Communication and Media Arts HS from the year of 2016. CMA as a whole a really good school that has great intentions for students in their future. With the small school consisting of only 550 students the staff does the best the possibly can to try and leave no student behind. There aren’t many options student get to choose from when it comes to different clubs and sports with CMA only having access to the basic sports (Basketball, Football, Track & Field etc.). The surrounding areas weren’t typically the best around the school but the security always made sure they patrolled the are before, during l, and after school when students were heading home.
The school was okay, it's not all that. Everyone is pretty much in a clique, don't try to fit in to be part of the popular kids who will most likely drop out or don't graduate. The principal is kind of mean and strict, but she can also be a great person too once you get to know her for a while. A parent for 2017 made school jackets for us and hosted our senior trip at Florida. As I started school in 10th grade, I always felt left out due to my 'dorkiness', but now as I graduate, I know that I am a part of class 2017!
My experience about Communication & Media Arts High School is that it's an average school where some subjects are hard, but it's worth the hard work and success. The diversity is okay, most students are either African Americans or Native American, some who are Hispanics, Indian, and Nigerian.
