As a freshman student in the musical theatre major of this school, I would say that the building is not ideal. It is not a normal high school building, but the school is working on building a new one. As for the majors, we have dance, musical theatre, drama, vocal, film production, costuming, and I think that's it. I'm only in musical theatre but they do accept you there as who you are. Most of the people are great and academics are challenging. Uniforms are required.
