Savannah Arts Academy is an exceptional high school, which focuses on artists and musicians. The classes are laid out much like a college, with studio classes being a priority. I believe that this helps the students stay focused on their passion and helps them realize that school is not "just about academics". The teachers push their students to do their best and the counselors do a great job in helping the upper-class prepare for college. Let's not forget Mr. Lockley - he is the best principal any student could ask for! He connects with the kids on their level and is always available to ease a dispute between teachers and students whenever necessary - somehow he always finds a way to satisfy everyone's needs. Did I mention the building? It is a piece of artwork in itself, an inspiration to young artists with its decorative columns, high ceilings and large windows. I cannot say enough about this school, it has been a true blessing.

The teachers at Savannah Arts are top-notch. They are all quite knowledgeable in their subject areas. All of the teachers I have had do a great job at have a variety of teaching- they present the information in different ways to allow students the opportunities to learn in a way they can best retain the material. There have only been a few exceptions to this, but I believe that has mostly been dealt with. Different teachers have different consistency in grading. Teachers who have mostly underclassmen are relatively good at being quick with grades due to the level of material they have, but upper level classes understandably have a lag in the grading process. Teachers do their best!

We have almost any honor society you can think of, including, but not limited to, National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, National English Honor Society, and many more. There is practically an honor society for every subject-- from math (Mu Alpha Theta) to theatre (Thespian Society). Most of these clubs require commitment, be it with money or time (usually both). We also have religious societies, JV and Varsity sport teams, and quiz bowl teams. My personal favorite extracurricular activity is Odyssey of the Mind. Some students do more than others (the most overachieving ones aim to be the president of every society). Basically, if you want to make a club, round up a few friends, ask a teacher to stay afterschool once or twice a month with you, and there you have it!
