I attended the school Magnet Academy for Cultural Arts since 2014-2015 school year. M.A.C.A is an extremely academically and talent based school which helps and persuades the students to express their talents and knowledge. My experiences there have been great. The teachers help all of their students even when they have work for themselves. The teachers push their students for the readiness of college and business life. M.A.C.A is its own little world where everyone helps everyone. Being there is like being in multiple countries at once. The diversity is unique and abundant, especially for a small school. Although there are no sports, M.A.C.A is still a school that strives and grows every year.

I think the many different talent areas at the Magnet Academy for Cultural arts are what make are school not only great, but also unique. The school allows students to express their talents in a way they couldn't do without this school. We have performances all throughout the year and this allows all the talent areas to show off their talents and skills to the rest of the school. The people at MACA are also very accepting and friendly, and everyone for the most part gets along. The curriculum is also very good. We are an A school and have been for many years. And finally some things that I think could improve our school would be more funding possibly. Our school is in a very poor parish and the teachers here don't make enough for the A status that the school has maintained. Overall I think MACA is a great school and I wish it the best.
I like Magnet Academy for Cultural Arts because it's not your regular high school. My school focuses on the arts and academics rather than on sports. I find it interesting that you can go to high school with a specific or multiple talents. It also gives students the opportunity to get state talented in talents such as theater, art, and more. MACA also has a great curriculum that benefits the students as they move up to higher grades. Overall MACA is an A school and the students and faculty all worked hard to achieve this accomplishment.
