On Sports & Fitness: In order to play sports, you have to go to another school called Campus High School. There are not any athletic facilities at Cicely Tyson.

On Student Culture & Diversity: There's not that much diversity when it comes to ethnic/racial diversity. This school is predominately African American with a small mix of Latinos and Asians. For the most part, everyone is accepting of students with varied sexual orientation. There are quite a few programs that students can get involved in such as the National Honor Society, the Film Club, L.E.A.D, the International Thespian Society, the Mentor Program, and the Diversity Club.

High School Senior

On Academics: The best thing about this school is that it intertwines performing arts education with academic discipline. It is like a liberal art performing art school. You get the best of both worlds: a quality education coupled with something you love to do.

High School Senior

On Food: The same foods are constantly served everyday!

High School Senior

On Teachers: The teachers genuinely care about the students.
