    "This school used to be lovely. Then I became a high school-er instead of middle school-er. The teachers here always have favorites and make it well known. They only have a select few good teachers. Their academic programs here are horrible. This year they have limited dual enrollment classes to only two classes per year. This is why I am leaving to attend a different h9igh school this way I may acquire more college credits."

    "This school is just down right terrible, The academics are a joke because no teacher here except for maybe a couple know how to do their job. I never feel like Im learning anything at this school. Just taking each day one at a time, thank god its my senior year. The food here is really bad, it seems the school just finds whatevers in the back and just gives it to us. The Food always taste old and unhealthy. If you're going here for the arts, dont. Its not the school it use to be. Its focused all on the dance department because thats how the school makes its money. The music department is just left with the scraps of the schools budget. Every other elective her is also a joke. There is no learning at this school. As a student I would recommend to parents to never send your child to this school. I honestly use to feel pretty smart before coming here but after being here for awhile I feel like Ive been really dumbed down. 0/10 for this school. I hope they close this school down or they really start picking up things up."

    "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."
