Some things that I liked about Phoenix Military Academy was the faculty, teachers, academics, and the clubs. The teachers at PMA tried with their outmost potential to push students to become better than who they were yesterday. The teachers are always willing to help students achieve, from staying after school for hours to some teachers coming in to school on their day-off. Attending Phoenix Military Academy meant being expected to act a certain way and was also expected to work with the excellent academic competition, although I may say that I believe PMA has more potential in regards to academics. If someone is looking for a school that offers excellent clubs and activities, Phoenix Military Academy may be the place for that person. From offering JROTC activities such as Color Guard, Drill, Raiders to clubs such as Brotherhood and Sisterhood, National Honor Society, and After-school matters, you will certainly find your niche at PMA.
Phoenix Military Academy is great high school ,and most students take 2 AP classes every year. The teachers make you write college essays and use the colleges essay format which is great.Students will be able to be prepared for college and It also has a good discipline.There's different extracurricular activities students can join. There's always people to help you if you need anything. I really recommend this high schools to those students that want to get a good education, succeed and want to get many opportunities. Lastly, there’s a diversity of races. There’s African Americans, Whites, Hispanic and Chinese.
