    "I loved my experience at Academic Magnet. It is very academically oriented and I believe it will prepare me well for college. Most teachers are always happy to help and school spirit is high which makes the atmosphere great. However, while thesis is a beneficial process, some of it is repetitive and needs to be streamlined. Overall, it is a difficult school but time management it key."

    "Very rigorous academic schedules and most of the teachers seem to genuinely care about the students."

    "AMHS is a fantastic school, and is widely regarded as academically one of the best in the Charleston area. Most of the students are devoted, compassionate individuals who engage in the community academically and in extracurriculars, including a wide range of sports and clubs. I cannot praise the teachers enough, as they are academically and personally invested in the school. Some diversity problems have arisen as of late, as the testing process to get into AMHS is not equitable. Although the school itself is not at fault, some fortunate county middle schools and private schools have the resources to teach students how to ace the entry exams, whereas low-income schools cannot afford this luxury."

    "The people here are super competitive but really great. School spirit is through the roof but we have different traditions. Such as there's not normally homecoming dances but we celebrate Pi day on April 14th. The teachers are hit or miss and you're going to have to work extremely hard."

    "Academic Magnet is a school for people who constantly want to learn more and are focused on working hard for success later in in life already at the high school level. While the academics are rigorous, most teachers assist students enough so it doesn't feel impossible. The only problem with the academics is the rigid structure in the classes required. Students have very limited choice in the classes they can take especially with the extracurricular classes offered. Additionally, the requirement of four years of the same foreign language at Academic Magnet is absurd. Personally, I believe once students have completed the necessary course credits for foreign language to graduate from a South Carolina high school, then they should be allowed to switch languages if they desire.Overall, Magnet is a good place for people who are solely focused on academics."
