Glad to hear this is still agreat school. HIP HIP TO the CLASS OF 1993
Great school Teachers are nice, well most of them. There are uniforms now most kids pretend to dislike them but its a relieve to wake up in the morning and not spend two hours on what you should wear.
P.S. there are a lot of video cameras in the school so don't pull the fire alarm just for fun they get caught , lol.
James Madison Medical Magnet is a great school. The Magnet office really cares about their kids and althought there are a lot of kids at the school overall, the physical setting makes the magnet section feel like a smaller school. The campus is very green and spread out. Love the computer access to my children's grades and progress!!!
it was the best thing that ever happened to me. i went there for 3 years and graduated there it was the best.
