Arts Academy in the Woods is a very culturally diverse, open minded place to learn. Most of the students are accepting individuals that have a passion for the Arts and want it Incorporated into their daily schedule. I had great teachers overall that were vested in my well being. I was able to travel to Europe with a group of students and teachers my senior year and it was an unforgettable experience! Arts is a great place to learn.

This is my third high school and it has been amazing compared to my past high school experiences. The entire school, the staff and students and teachers are so so accepting of others. It is a safe haven for many students, especially for kids who are “outcasts”. There are no outcasts here, everyone is accepted for who they are. This school gave me somewhere to belong. This school also gives you the opportunity to explore the arts. Not many schools are focused on arts and this school is so dedicated to helping us learn different arts while also teaching regular academic classes. They help us strive in our chosen art classes. The school gives us a space to be creative and to be ourselves without judgment. The teachers are also exceptional. They are all so kind and they just want to help you learn however they can.
To walk into my school is like intricately walking upon the water lilies in Monet’s work, writing with the mind of Maya Angelou, singing with the voice of Edith Piaf, blowing into horns with the soul of Coltrane, and having teachers unionized within a loving support system ressemblent to concrete brick, and chrysanthemums. To speak of my school, is to shout with voices spewing activism, and protest. To be in my school, is to live in the definitions of equality, art, unity and love.
