I really love the support that I had from my teachers, even though the school is a law magnet it does not necessarily mean that you have to go into a law related field. One of the things that makes my time here most enjoyable is the organization I am a part of that has allowed my to grow in confidence and in skill. Skills-USA is a big part of the Law Magnet along with other extracurricular activities.
At Judge Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet School you will have some learning experiences that you would not be able to get anywhere else. Here i have gotten the chance to join an organization that teaches me about leadership, responsibility, teamwork, participation and many other attributes that regular high schools dont offer. You also get hands on activities related to your career pathway. So no matter what ypu want to be, whether it is a lawyer, attorney, FBI agent, Police officer, or Army Soldier this school will get you prepared for anything out in the world.
