I am an upcoming senior at Memphis Business Academy, and I have been attending there since my 6th-grade year. My experience at MBA has been mind-blowing. There were a lot of changes I had to adjust to over the years but not anything incapable. The teachers are so loving and can relate to most of the Frayser-Raleigh students there. They give us life lessons, along with school lessons. They are more than just teachers; they are family, especially to me. Just by me attending there for all these years show how loyal they have been to me as I have been to them. There are not any changes I recommend but to continue to be great.
My experience at Memphis Business Academy was amazing. This school prepared me for college and taught me new skills that I can actually use in the real word and business world. Also, I have been attending this school since the sixth grade and it has molded me and shaped the way I make decisions till this day. From the first day that I’ve attended Memphis Business Academy their goals have always been to educate their students well, prepare them for college, and teach them the ins and outs of business or entrepreneurship. The school has made a few improvements to the high school facilities since I graduated, but I hope that they continue to work very hard to do what’s right for all the students and continue to prepare them for college.
