Most of the teachers here are good and care about their students. They push you to try new things and work harder. We go to school in an office building. There are two tiny student lounges and often kids have to eat lunch on the floor in the hallway. We have no food court here, just a few crappy vending machines. Homeless people have gotten into our building before, it's not hard to do. Location is on Michigan Ave and right by the Art Institute museum. You can't pick your own classes lately because there are no choices, you just get put somewhere even if you have no interest in the class. They charge you lab fees which are rediculious and should be built into your tuition.

It's great being taught by people who are already established in the art community. The teachers are really personable and it's not hard to talk to them at all. While there isn't anything like a meal plan and the dorms are quite expensive - which is kind of expected being downtown and all - the classes and how thoroughly subject matter is covered makes up for it
I’ve attended the academy for 5+ years and I enjoyed it. Very small school which I personally like since I get more one on one time with the professors.
