Going to a Performing Arts school that also has a fantastic academic reputation is definitely a challenging yet rewarding experience. There is a lot of pressure to do everything within your art major and to excel at academics at the same time. That being said, the faculty and staff has always been supportive of each individual student and pushes them to shoot for perfection. I have developed great personal bonds with the students and the teachers at my high school and would absolutely choose this school once more if I were to do high school all over again. The experience has been a fascinating one that has exposed me to all different types of backgrounds, cultures and lifestyles that have helped to shape my current beliefs and have allowed me to develop into the person I am now.
