Marine Leadership Academy Reviews
As a Sophomore in Marine Leadership Academy as well as my second year in the academy my experience so far has been genuinely good because I have been engaged in a few clubs here and there. For example this year I had gone out to South Dakota to represent Marine Leadership Academy. By doing so our instructor had announced that he need people who are interested in signing up to do the YPFT (Youth Physical Fitness Test) for the drill team. Which is also a club that is available in our school. As my first time going to a competition in a different state it was a very new experience. That being said Marine Leadership Academy has so much to offer for the students, not only that but there are also some programs that are held within our school during off-school hours where it can also benefit the parent or guardian of a child that comes to Marine Leadership Academy. There are simply to many things that are beneficial for the people as well as for future leaders being made in the academy.
Marine Leadership Academy is a great environment for anyone who wants to invest into themselves and build character. There are countless opportunities to push yourself and the support by teachers is tremendous. The only issue is the students being negative, but because the school is ran by the students, they motivate each other to be better.
What I like about Marine Leadership Academy is the people who attend school because the first time I transferred in as a sophomore I thought of nothing because I was nervous but I was welcomed by a few people which felt nice. The school is full of surprises in my opinion because you'll never know what you'll expect, and sure there are bad times that will occur but I mean, no school is perfect and this one felt like home, where I became comfortable with more people and myself. It was due to this school that I've started noticing and realizing what I've wanted to do because of the people I meet who I became friends with. We all care for one another even if we do have issues with them because we grow up with them throughout your high school years and it'll be one good adventure learning and going through the obstacles that awaits you ahead.
