School Reviews

  • Recommended April 09, 2012 - I graduated from PMA almost 20 years ago and I still credit them for making me into the person I am today. The way I was encouraged to learn and embrace school, rather than hate it, stayed with me through college, graduate school and now in my career. In fact, I was so prepared for college that I tested out of several freshman classes (and I know a lot of my former classmates did as well.) At PMA they care about the student as an individual and I was always encouraged to pursue greatness. I still remember every one of my teachers, and, even more impressive, they still remember me. I am glad to say that after a recent visit the atmosphere and overall feel of the school is the same. I would highly recommend PMA. - Posted by Student/Alumni
