Bronx Theatre High School Reviews

Bronx theatre has a state of the art acting program giving both novices and professionals a chance to act and perform in front of their peers. Everybody has the chance to learn about the arts, from costume design to stage management. In terms of academics in Bronx Theatre, the teachers are phenomenal. Their demeanor is always enthusiastic and caring. They always try to push students beyond their limits, offering an amazing learning experience. Some even sacrifice their private life to make sure students receive the help they need afterschool such as tutoring. The only con of the school is its sanitation. The janitors do an amazing job of cleaning the bathrooms. Unfortunately, some students use their free time to destroy the bathroom routinely, ruining the janitor's hard work. Overall the school is perfect for those looking for a diverse school that offers an outstanding acting program. Just beware of the bathrooms

I really enjoyed the years that I have attended in my school. The academic program at Bronx Theatre High School accommodate the intellectual, social, emotional and physical needs of creative high school students. the acadmics offered inclueded AP/Honors classes the school also provide students with a dynamic learning environment where respect is mutual, ideas are shared and learning is not limited to the classroom. also we had thearter programs like dance, set design, proformance and coustom design. Since my school is a theatre school they offer many electives that involve theatre; for example: acting, costume and set design and behind the scene jobs. They offer many ap classes like english,spanish and are thinking of doing an ap chemistry class next year. Some ap classes require an application that is fair. Although the workload for the ap classes can be intense, regular classes seem moderately average.
As this is now my fourth year in this school, I can wholesomely say that this school was...eh. I wish teachers tried more to connect with students and be more encouraging. Despite this, I do love the idea behind the school, being connected to theater. As a freshman I felt so connected to theater and performing but now as a senior I feel we've lost the school spirit completely. I also believe this school would've been more successful if we didn't reside in the campus we are in. I know I am just spitting out cons for this school but i'm just being honest with my experiences.
