FOrt Pierce Magnet School of the Arts is one of the best public schools you could enroll your child in. The teachers are very hands on and connect with their students. The classes are small so students get individual attention. Their Arts program is excellent. The Dance class is very professional. Drama is outstanding. The choirs is amazing. The Art is very superior. Also the band is enjoyable to listen to. This school is one that you wish had a highschool and college. Every student seems to get a much better education then any other middle school. All in all this a school you child wouldnt want to miss out on. It is such an amazing experience
