It was my first choice magnet school, I auditioned. Got accepted and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I attended all throughout high school. We as a ram family have had our ups and downs, but we are truly loved and have so much respect for each other regardless of the situation. Our student/faculty population is quite diverse. There are times where we spend more focus on our magnet programs than academics but from my freshmen year (2014-2015) to my senior year (2016-2017), we have improved so much! We deserve the blessing we earned so much! Thank God <3 I recommend any student/faculty who have a lot for the arts to come audition here and or apply to work in our lovely community of ram pride.
