My experience at Philadelphia Military Academy honestly isn't the best. I try to make the best out of it. I stay focus on my classwork, but I feel limited. Their isn't a lot of extracurricular activities. On my own I found them else where. I attend a college prep program, Temple Upward Bound. This organization helps me with homework, provide scholarship opportunities, and has activities. Philadelphia Military Academy culture is beneficial. The JROTC curriculum teaches me discipline, honor, respect, and duty. I have respect for my school, it'll always be in my heart.
If I had the power to change my school, I would add more sports and clubs. Clubs: journalism, robotics, debate, and chess. Sports: football, wrestling, soccer, and volleyball. I would increase resources. More scholarship opportunities for seniors. More field trips, and community involvement. Make the high school experience more interesting.

The school is a melting pot of culture. There are many different people and opportunities to mix with them. The drill team is one of my favorite experiences because it captivates leadership qualities with the opportunity for someone to lead others. It is the best way in the school to become advanced in that area and further propel yourself forward for future leadership positions. I would choose this school again because it taught me the importance of teamwork and unity. Working by yourself may work in some situations but in life, you need others to support and help you along the way to complete the mission.
Philadelphia Military Academy is an okay school. I've had some good experiences though there are some flaws. The main flaw is the admission. The school always seem to accept people regardless of their behavioral problem and even grades. It is really negatively impacting the school. Some students would misrepresent the school by misbehaving on the way to school and vice versa. It seems as though students of Philadelphia Military Academy doesn't care much about the school and it's reputation. But back to the good experiences I've had. I've experience things that made me realize who I am more and what I can actually do. They includes: making it in the drill team and raider team, being a part of the drum line, attending J.R.O.T.C. Cadet Leadership Challenge, and much more. Joining the drill team and raider team helped me by allowing myself to be more confident in myself and to have better self esteem. Drum line helped me to developed my performance skills and also increased my confident. J.R.O.T.C. Cadet Leadership Challenge also helped me by giving me the leadership skills I need. I learned to lead from the front. It also taught me to face my fears and overcome. It helped me to realize my passion for overcoming challenges.
