My son will graduate this year. He loves this school. He loves everything about it. He is a soccer player and loves his teammates. He loves the diverse student population and feels everyone is accepted for who they are or who they want to be.

Academic Magnet is a unique environment that more replicates the college/graduate school experience than a typical high school situation. Students' excellent behavior nets them more latitude with personal privileges.

Our son graduated from AMHS this past June. He absolutely loved the community and family feel of the school. People are not expected to fit into any one mold, and being a little weird (or sometimes really weird) is OK. That being said, if your child does not love academics and school work, you might have a struggle on your hands. As the name implies, academics are the main focus. The teachers and administration were wonderful and do support the kids, but they maintain very high expectations, and I think that will only be helpful to our son as he heads into his freshman year in college.

I (like the other 8th grader who posted below) was accepted to Academic Magnet and I'm looking forward to it dearly. AMHS looks at your grades from 8th grade (the higher the better) a LONG test (about 3 hours if I recall correctly) teacher recommendations and of course the writing sample. Due to the highly selective process, I believe that AMHS will have a great community and many students with similar interests to my own. I was not very sure on the ACT grading when I received my acceptance letter, but none the less I was very happy I had been accepted. The only sad thing about it was the fact my sister had applied but had been wait listed, and she probably won't get in. Anyways, glad to be going there this fall.

I am in 8th grade, and have just been accepted by Academic Magnet. I go to Buist Academy for Advanced Studies, and have credits for both Spanish and Algebra 1. I have not attended Magnet, of course, so I cannot discuss the community, teachers, or academics. However, I can discuss the requirements of getting in. Magnet looks at your grades in Humanities(Social studies), Math, ELA, and science for the 7th grade; They also look at your first quarter grades for 8th grade. In order to be accepted, you must have an 85 or above in these classes. Academic Magnet also looks at a written essay- You have about 1 hour to complete it, and is taken at either Magnet or your school. They also look at your ACT and teacher recommendations. I have A/Bs in all my classes, my lowest score being an 87, and having most of my scores above a 90. I did not get the results of the essay. My teachers love me(I... think...), so I was pretty confident in that area.). And for my ACT scores, I got a 100 percentile. Also, for my PSAT(Magnet does not look at this) I got 80% in the nation compared to 10th graders. :D When I finally received the letter, I was ecstatic. I wasn't even on the wait list!
