This school is fantastic! I feel like my art is really turning into something special every day I am here. Even in the virtual world we are able to make special connections with our teachers, and although some teachers may be hard to deal with (Madame Gournet), it''s genuinely a wonderful school. I highly recommend coming here, just maybe not take French!

I am a student and it is an amazing school. Many people have the idea that the academics are horrible, but they have improved immensely since the school first opened 10 years ago. The theatre is far more advanced than any local theatre classes, and the academic work is just as strenuous.
