This will be my seventh year at Arizona Conservatory for the Arts and Academics as I've been there since sixth grade. From beginning to end, the sense of community and shared passion for the performing arts here was more than exceptional. In a real sense, the frequent change in teachers can be frustrating and difficult to deal with. The administration may not be very accommodating but the teachers who do stay are well worth it. If you are looking for a school well saturated in the performing arts, this is my number one recommendation. The quality of education is high even if the number of students may not be.

I have never felt such a familial community within a high school. Everyone knows everyone and supports them in their endeavors. You have a choice of what art you’d like to pursue and are welcomed with open arms by teachers who are excited to teach and love what they do. Each student is passionate about their art and encourage those around them to be the best they can be. If anyone wants to pursue a career in arts, the best place to start is here.
ACAA has a very diverse student population! Teachers are very supportive of students ad help them with everything. The school has a very comfortable atmosphere with all students being able to make friends easily!
