The Professional Academy Magnet at Loften High School is a very small school of barely 300 children combined in all grade levels. When you are fist introduced to this school you think it will be the best school ever! But that is a lie. You dont get the full highschool experience like you see in movies. They have no sports; barely any clubs and you mostly sit at a computer or in a chair for 80 minutes each class period. Also due to long lines you barely have enough time to eat. Also buses barely get you to school on time in the morning so if you wanted to go finish a test for a teacher in the morning, you really cant because you would be arriving 2 minutes to school before the bell rings. If you normally wanted to eat at school you might want to think again because the buses arent really going to let you get enough time at school. Then when its raining on the campus there is giant puddles all along the campus and sidewalk that you arent really getting covered anywhere you go.

My years at Loften has been a very enlightening time for me. I've gone through many friendships that have taught me many lessons in life, and I've developed relationships with the staff and teachers which have helped through so much in life. I am going into my fourth year here and I am finally learning who I really am and who I really want to be. Throughout the years with the great teachers in my academic classes and the amazing guidance in my academy classes I have maintained above average grades and my GPA is through the roof. There were times I know I've frustrated my teachers and the staff by switching my classes or transferring academies then leaving them again, but not once did someone tell me I was a burden to them. Although I've had a few rocky times in the last four years, my high school experience was amazing thanks to the amazing teachers, staff and of course friends, at Professional Academies Magnet at Loften High School.
Loften is a diverse campus with many opportunities. There aren't many clubs and activities after school, but there are opportunities during school for involvement. The four academic fields that are available to study are all equipped adequately for student success. Teachers and administrators are all there for success. They are always available to help in any way a student needs.
