In total, I have attended the Milwaukee Academy of Science for fourteen years, it's a familiar and welcoming environment to its attendees. The school has done its best throughout the years to prepare me for secondary education, that being said, some of the teachers aren't necessarily equip to teach certain classes. As they are understaffed there has been instances in which a Science teacher was made to teach a Junior math class. And in others, we hadn't a teacher at all.

It is a good school. The administrative staff is always looking for ways to better the school or appeal to students more. Academics are taken seriously by the staff at the school. They do whatever it is they can do to make sure that students are achieving. I can honestly say I haven't been there as long as some but even after a year, you feel very connected to the school on many levels. They are a STEM-focused school. With saying that, they offered many and required many science and math courses. They are even a couple of courses offered that you may have never heard of but is offered there. It is also very hard to be a loner or antisocial person at that school because the students do try to and be friendly to new people, especially since it's a small setting so it's difficult to be antisocial.
I came to school my sophomore year. The one thing I can say about this school is that everyone is like family. It's a very small school, about 200 students, and the students typically grew up together from attending to the same school. Even though I'm not a huge science person, I like that there's so many science courses. Physics, engineering, anatomy and physiology, zoology, etc. It exposes students to ton of science careers. And the school is in partnership with Marquette University and a medical college, so there are programs available for us there.
