Boston Arts Academy Reviews
What I love about Boston Arts Academy is the diversity. As an arts an school, I beleive that teachers should take time to acknowledge the competition kids put amongst eachother. It makes kids feel as if they are not good enough and want to stop doing their art. However, the staff is great and really seem to care about their students!
Boston Arts Academy to me is the best thing that I could have done in my life. This school has helped me more than anything or anyone combined, I feel that I am very ready for college and this school has shaped me to become a better artist ,scholar, and citizen. Without the school I wouldn't be in the place I am now. I feel I have grown as an artist throughout my four years of the Boston Arts Academy and I've been able and lucky to be a part of programs that are connected to the Boston Arts Academy that let me travel to Italy, and study with the most professional teachers from across the world. The Boston Arts Academy in my opinion is the greatest High School for students who are very passionate about their art and as a graduating student I could not be more happy to be graduating from an amazing School.
Boston Arts Academy offers a rigorous curriculum, both in terms of both artistry and academics. The school has a tight-knit community, and many of the graduates of this school, from my experience, have become very well rounded individuals in their respective communities. This, however, does not make the school perfect. For example, the school is very liberal, so any students of a differing political philosophy will likely be shunned at this school. Along with this, there are many other issues such as poor food in the cafeteria or the lack of sports programs. These issues, however, are likely not too relevant to a student who wants a rigorous arts education, and I still highly recommend the school in spite of the issues it has.
