    "Overall, MSA is a great school! I like how they focus on the arts. Unfortunately, the seem to favor dance over other arts, which doesn't help much if you are not a dancer. And like most high schools, their guidance department needs a lot of work. We had to do all the college prep legwork ourselves, which caused us to miss some deadlines."

    "MSA has been an amazing experience and really is unique for every student. The faculty at MSA takes tremendous amounts of time on each student to make sure they understand the topics. MSA offers a lot of extra circulars that the students actually enjoy. Getting volunteer hours at MSA isn't a chore, and is actually quite fun. MSA is a great school for students of the arts."

    "Manatee School for the Arts allows the popular kids, or the nerds, or the theater geeks, to lose those stereotypical titles and become an individual. Being at a school for up to 7 years gives you the opportunity to grow relationships with teachers, fellow students and by the time your graduation comes you have made a second family. I wish to see growth in the size of the school buildings as student body growth is ever-increasing. As well as introducing a medical-track program within the science department."

    "Manatee School for the Arts has been my favorite school experience. The student body is filled with diversity and talent. The teachers and staff really try to get to know you and help you along the way. Everyone encourages each other whether it be on the dance team, school musicals, or bands. I was very sad when I graduated. I knew I would never find another environment that made me feel so at home and safe. The school is always improving and building new facilities to accommodate the growing number of students. The alumni are very successful in the performing arts some even working with big names out in Los Angeles. I am very proud to be an alumni of this school."

    "Manatee school for the arts is quite an experience when it comes to going to the high school side of it. I've been here since 6th grade and I'm currently in mg junior year right now. From others and my own background knowledge high school here is quite different from other high schools. Never mind the fact that we are a public charter school in a county filled mainly with public schools. There's a great diversity when it comes to the students & bullying is very small. It is considered as "safe space." The academics I feel could get stronger, however without much money from the government resources are cut short. Most teachers and lunch ladies are passionate and caring for their students but the administration I can say otherwise. They aren't the most helpful and can be quite rude. Overall it's a pretty great school but it certainly isn't for everyone."
