The staff here tries their best. This school may not have everything, but atleast they treat you with respect & equality. My former teachers Alsobrook, Diaz, & Beck has taught me a lot about how to try and not give up on things that matter to me. They also have taught me how to respect others & embrace my choices in life. I may not be the brightest student but here at Mamp I've grown to shine brighter than before. ~"Be Grateful."
