Milwaukie Academy of the Arts Reviews

I loved how welcoming my high school was. We had a big LGBTQ+ population and students at MAA were very welcoming of each others differences. Our teachers kept us focused, but they allowed us enough autonomy to choose how we decided to complete our projects and they let us work in groups. Which helped to build community among us, as peers. At MAA, we were given a lot of projects and work to do. At the time, I found this to be a difficult transition since in middle school there is not nearly as much work that we are tasked to do. However, as a first year college student, I can proudly say that these projects made me a better more focused student. And, this atmosphere really prepared me the work that I do in college. In addition to this, MAA works so well because we are a smaller community of students in the high school. Therefore, we have less students in each class. Which is helpful because it created a family like community!

This is a really good school for visual learning accessibility. You have the room to express yourself without being judged by your peers. One thing that I do have a problem with the school is, is that they don't listen to students' complaints about teachers, no matter how serious they are, excluding anything illegal of course. One teacher purposefully ignored assignments, tanking people's grades, also picking favorites giving them more room than others. Other than their bias to their teachers, it is a good charter school.
Milwaukie Academy of the Arts (MAA) is an alternative school that resides within the same campus and building as Milwaukie High School, and encourages students to use their artistic capabilities to flourish in academics. It provides students with teachers who are willing to challenge the mind and desire to see development in their pupils. It admits any student from any neighboring school district so that anyone and everyone attending high school has an opportunity to break free from the everyday "public school" curriculum, and take part in a more engaging and opportunity filled experience. Though it's rather short staffed, the impact it's made on me and many others is astonishing, to say the least.
