Bronx High School for the Visual Arts Reviews

97 reviews
All Categories
I currently attend this school but my overall experience at this school is great thus far. One of my favorite experiences at this school is having the the opportunity to participate in a class that helped students prepare for their individual art portfolios. The students within the school have the ability to express themselves individuality through art talents and with non-uniform (appropriate) clothing. Also, due to the fact this schools population is small, it allows students to briefly understand the teachers instructions as well as their individual methods of teaching the students. Therefore, I would choose this school again I were to do it all over due to the fact students do not have to obtain a skill in art to apply to this school, disabled students are received proper security and learning services, and if a student desires to pursue an art field career in the future, this school can briefly help students accomplish this goal.

it's a great school that has a very big mix of culture and diversity, the atmosphere is great and the environment is very good as the security guards always make shure that our safety is a priority. the principal, Witherspoon is a great principal who has been working in Bronx high school for the visual arts for the last 2 years and so far it has been a big success as well as the population of the school is small our community in the school is great as we all know one another and respect one another's belief and religious accusations.
We don't really have a variety of clubs in the school and even if there are, they're not really well-known. The school could probably work the advertising part a bit better and also have more clubs available that the students choose. And the school should have some sort of club/activities fair so that the students can actually learn about what's out there.
