I have just graduated from drew in the past year. The school was a good experience for me and gave me the oppurtunity to enter geat highschool, CAMS. But this following year drew has had some drastic changes. It is now year-round, only has grades 7-8 and has block schedule.

I was a student in the Magnet program in the early 80's.  The curriculum was rigorous and the Teacher's set high learning expectations for the students.  I am an Educator and thank Drew Magnet for instilling the value of a quality in education in me.

I think Drew was a great school. It was one of my greatest expiriences.
