Student, California Academy of Mathematics and Science, Class of 2016,
In reality, there is not a typical person that attends CAMS. The stereotype, created by people who have never attended, is that CAMS is a school of nerds. I have never met and never will meet two students alike at my school. Since our school has a strong focus in Math and Science, one with an interest in Engineering , Robotics, Biotechnology, Aerospace or Computer science is welcomed to enroll. Though the subjects may sound overwhelming , CAMS also offers a dedicated dance team and art class. The one thing I can say that ALL CAMS students have in common is sleep deprivation. I know it may sound foolish, you might be thinking that we just waste our time on social media and Netflix , but its the complete opposite. The reason why the students at CAMS procrasinate is because we all have at least 4 balls to juggle on a daily basis. In conclusion, if you have an interest in math and science, love the arts, work well in a team , and like sleepless nights, then WELCOME to the little heaven and hell of academia Califronia can offer.
