    "I am the grandmother of a student at MSA.I am very pleased at the accomplishments of my granddaughter through the staff at MSA. It's a safe school and teaches students how to be respectful to their peers and their teachers. MSA gives students opportunities to explore all kinds of avenues not offered at other schools."

    "As a student, I believe that MSA has an incredible academic program but the quality of electives has gone down since I started here in 6th grade in 2009. Many of the teachers are wonderful but the disciplinary staff seems to think that they are the police and treat you like you're guilty until proven innocent. They have become excessively more strict even in the past year and lock the doors when the bell rings so you can't get in even if you're like 10 seconds late!!!!! If your phone is out in class it's grounds for suspension even if you're being productive and making reminders to do your homework, which leads me to my next point. MSA is VERY behind in the way of technology. Computers are pretty discouraged and everything is done with paper, funding is low and it has become very obvious. However with all of the faults and backwardness of the school I do believe that the education is better quality than what you will find anywhere else in manatee county and the students are very kind and accepting of everyone."

    "I have gone to this school since sixth grade and am satisfied. The lack of communication is distressing. The clothing guidelines are a bit ridiculous and I prefer not to have my pants pulled on to see if they're too tight, but I understand where its coming from. I would like to see the theatre department improve. If you are going here for dance, GO! Our school has the biggest dance program in the state of Florida. Our school adds up to DANCE, little bit of theatre, lots of shows, art, and some stupid rules. But overall satisfied with the arts."
