About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Milwaukie Academy of the Arts Reviews
The teachers and administration clearly care about the students. The classes are well designed to foster learning, critical thinking, and creativity. The focus on core academic subjects of Math, English, Social Studies, and Science prepares students for college while fostering their artistic abilities. Being located inside Milwaukie High School allows access to a multitude of elective classes and sports, while having the core classes with MAA teachers keeps the family/small school feel
