  • “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


  • “Fast forward five years, my daughter and son are now attending a top University of their choice and flourishing in college. Both were challenged with AP and Honors courses in class and performed in dance competitions and public events to build confidence, learn to work with others as a team, and share their love of the Chinese language and culture.”

  • 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


  • This school works really hard to develop and nurture a strong character in each student. Students are taught to be honest, more compassionate towards others, and respect everyone around them. I’ve received multiple such compliments about my children from parents and individuals from outside of school.


    PARENT REVIEW


  • Because it is a smaller school, teachers are able to spend more time with each student and provide differentiated instructions when necessary.


    PARENT REVIEW


  • “[Middle 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.”
