“Our 12-year-old has danced and schooled at [High School of the Arts] the last two years. She is happy in this bully-free environment… The academics and dancing please our daughter, and the kindness and community please her parents!” — Parent of 6th grade student

Parent of 6th grade student

This school has an effective approach to homework. At this school, homework is not given just to fill up the students’ time but to ensure that it re-enforces what they learned in class. Projects and assignments are given with future deadlines which is similar to how college works. This approach has helped my daughter learn time management skills and excel at the University she currently attends.

Parent Review

[High School of the Arts] is AMAZING. The teacher and staff dedication is beyond par. They really do care about the children as a whole and take action when needed. Most schools our children have been to “talk about” their values a lot. [High School of the Arts] does. And it makes a world of difference. Highly recommend.

Parent of 8th and 11th grade students

She dances daily, is learning Mandarin (really learning it!) and has a terrific, quite traditional academic program.

Parent Review

Counterintuitively, the smaller community improved my social skills, pushing me out of my comfort zone to engage with everyone regardless of background instead of just hanging with a clique of similar kids like at my large “diverse” public school.
