I am proud to say that I am an alumni of the Judge Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet High School. In order to be accepted you go through an interview process which of the bat suggests how committed they are to accept only the best. My experience at this school was like no other surrounding school or even the country, so I heard. We are not only challenged but also prepared for the real world and college. Because of the opportunities offered, I was able to travel to places I have never been for competition that allowed me to flourish and obtain public speaking skills which is a must in the business world. I also obtained internships with lawyers as part as our classes which got my the job I currently hold at a finance firm in Downtown Dallas. This school has given me more than I could have asked for and I will recommend to any parent or student who are looking for the best high school in the metroplex.
Attending the Judge Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet has caused me to evolve not only in my grades, but as a person. The law magnet has provided myself and many others with opportunities that regular home schools fail to provide. The thing that would make the law magnet differ from any other outstanding school, would most definitely be the classroom settings. At the law magnet, the public was always our classroom, and all the knowledge came from the community itself. The reason behind the classroom setting was an effort to truly prepare students for the so called “real” world. The past three years as a law magnet student have honestly encouraged and drived me to be the best person I could be and to always strive for the best.
