Alright, so allow me to be frank with you for this quick second. OK, so this school, this Broad Ripple High School for Arts and Humanities was seen to me the ultimate for of performing and showing off my talents. I assumed that when I walked into the building everything would be like Glee! or High School Musical and though things weren't as similar I got even better opportunities. Opportunities which include joining into a program called Upward Bound (1st gen college prep program) which has allowed me to become the leader that i am today along with travelling around to different states. I also have gotten the opportunities to join another program known as Center for Leadership Development, sing all over the city, and just meet a lot of wonderful people.

I have been attending Broad Ripple since the 7th grade, and I can tell you that in spite of recent changes, it was an overall good experience. I am now a senior and will be attending Herron School of Art & Design at IUPUI this fall. This school has been a benefactor in the improvement of my artistic skills. The "artsy" environment of the school, as well as the community surrounding it, was a source of inspiration for me. The Visual Arts magnet was very welcoming. Administration cared about the education of the students, and constantly encouraged them to do their best. Not to say that doesn't remain, however, I feel that newer administration don’t care as much. It seems that students have become less motivated to work hard, but I have spotted potential in many of them. Broad Ripple Magnet High School is the place to leave with a legacy following behind you. Certain teachers made it their priority to push the students. I give this school a good 8.5/10.
I like that we’re a performing arts schooling meaning we get to express ourselves in many ways. We’re always doing something creative. Even in academic classes we’re ask to think outside the box and be creative. Broad Ripple was also great for keeping everybody on track with their grades. We got progress reports more than 6 times during the school year.
