Humanities and Arts Magnet High School is an average school filled with kids who want to learn and kids who just want to socialize (just like any other school). What I like about this school is that there are some great teachers who are there for you to not only teach, but to support you and guide you through life; not only will they guide you through your academic struggles, but they will also guide you through your personal life struggles as well. They've made the school environment feel more like a family environment. Although this school has some great teachers, improvements are need on organizing the school.

This school had good teachers to help us with our work. Every time we need help they always help us weather its about inside or outside of school. My favorite is Ms.Soilchan because she cares very much about the students,more than other teachers do, not every teacher say what a cutting student need to hear in order to get them right back on their feet. Although I still believe that some changes can be made such as they should be more extracurricular activities because we lack a few, more school trips,and cell phone should be allowed in school to a certain extent. There should be more school trips because the hard working students hardly get reward for what they have do. Cell phone policy should be changed because technology is mostly used for everything even classwork and studying for quizzes. Cell phone should be allowed in classroom so teens can use a game called kahoots to study for the quizzes and have fun at the same time. Overall this school is good but a little bit of changing.
I feel that classes are over crowded. Most of the teachers and administrators really do not care about the students. Security guards turn a blind eye most of the times. Their are a couple of dedicated teachers here but they are very few. Most parents really don't care or don't have the time. This is why most of the students act up and really do not respect the teachers. Teachers can not control the classroom. They are also not trained on how to use technology for teaching us. Supplies are also very hard to obtain. We barely have text books or subject related materials.
