My 2 siblings graduated from Alexandria Junior High and the name/curriculum changed to middle magnet the year I transferred there. I was in the magnet program which consisted of math and science high school credits. In 8th grade, I was accepted into the program and took 9th grade Algebra 1 and Physical Science. I received high school credits for those two classes. (Labs- English, Math, Technology, Biology, and Chemistry.) This year in 9th grade, I will take 10th grade biology (my fav. subject!)and geometry instead. All of my math and science classes will be one year ahead if I pass the classes. In 12th grade, I will take an elected type math and science, like advanced math, if I chooses to do so. (In 2003, 2004- 6th graders will take prealgebra and 7th grd. science, 7th graders- Algebra 1 and Phys. Science,, and 8th graders- Biology and Geometry.) I believe. I also enjoyed the several organizations the school provided. I was cheerleading captain and 4H President. This year, I will be going to Peabody Magnet Professional Services Magnet High, not my zoned school at Bolton. I was accepted into the medical magnet program. The other two are Animation and Digital Media and Engineering. I highly recommend this school to those who want high school credits before high school. It is not only a challenge, but an honor. I am glad I have the opportunity now to attend and be in these magnet schools, unlike my siblings, who are now in college.
