Bronx High School for the Visual Arts Reviews

106 reviews

I like the opportunities and classes they have, it's also very diverse. The only thing is the teachers and the security or staff. The staff can be rude and most of the school teachers or staff do't do their job, neither do the security. They make up their own rules and what not. They won't allow one good kid to do one thing but they let bad kids do it anyway. The class can be unmotivated for students such as myself. If you like doing things on your own and don't need any help, this place is for you. If you're struggling, things may not go well. Teachers also have favoritism on one student.

My experience there was great, the teachers are helpful and kind and are always there to help students in need. This school offers graphic design courses, illustration and art clubs. The only flaw the school has is the lack of more art related opportunities and more student body related events as well as school funds.
I believe that my favorite part of being enrolled in this school, was the option of chosing/being in different art classes for my entire highschool experience. However, the school is underfunded, and many older students are unable to go on school trips or events of the sort.
