Art and Design offers various opportunities and great programs for art students that they will not find anywhere else. As a student in the Graphic Design program, I had options to many internships, classes and competitions that helped me transition into college and helped me find other internships. Art and Design makes sure that art and regular classes are equal in importance offering great teachers for every class. Although some teachers do not deserve a position at Art and Design many other teachers were helpful during the college process, building portfolios and making sure your goals for your future is met

Throughout my 4 years at Art and Design High School, I can say that it was one of the best decisions. Although they are mainly an art based school, academics are still very important. They offer a variety of sports like Volleyball, Basketball, Bowling, Fencing etc. They also have a variety of majors like Fashion, Cartooning, Illustration, Animation, Architecture, Film, Photography and Graphic Design. The school makes sure that everyone is treated fairly and equally. If you have any disabilities (Learning/Physical) they try their best to adhere to your needs. When it comes to college readiness they counselors work with you every step of the way to ensure you get to where you want to be.
Art and Design has amazing art programs and art teachers that motivate and inspire the students. The graphic design program is strong, and a lot of teachers give students opportunities to participate in art competitions and events. The academics are not of a high standard, and many students are not motivated at all. There are not a lot of clubs or activities for students to use. A lot of the students are not motivated by their teachers, and though there isn't bullying, many students are isolated by others.
