Military Magnet is not a bad school! Its the people that makes the school look bad! But I look forward of seeing more fantastic things and a change!


Posted January 21, 2007

I have attended the school from the 6th to the 9th grade. While I was there, there wasn't much to offer, but that has changed. They still may not have alot, but just give them some time. This school is not for children who need to be disciplined, but rather children who are disiplined. I just feel that this school works better who those interested in entering the Armed Forces, rather than college. The college will fell a big difference when they go off to college. I transfered to a school that I think would benefit me in my future, rather than just focusing on the services, cuz the doctor i wanna be works with children and early adults.

I disagree with the last comment. My daughter has attended Military Magnet Academy since the 6th grade. She is now a Junior there at this school. The purpose of the school is to prepare your child to be well disciplined as in any other school. The children have visited the Citadel as well as other military schools and activities. They provide the same educational background to the students as if they were in any other school. My daughter has been on the Honor Roll since attending the school and is also in the band and other sport activities. It would be best if you would get more involved in your child school and maybe you will see that this school has a lot to offer your child that you never knew existed.

We invested the better part of $1000 for uniforms, boot camp, books, supplies, etc. We were told that our son couldn't have any discipline record, and needed a letter of recommendation for consideration to be enrolled in the school. It is this parents' sincere opinion that this school is grosly unable to deliver any kind of military discipline or structure anywhere near the image, written and spoken claims that it has projected. This school is probably better for students whose only other option is entry into the juvenile detention system.

In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
