CAB Calloway School of the Arts Reviews

When Cab holds shows or in school performances, I love watching students of all different art majors come together to put on a great show. I also enjoy Cab's spirit week traditions which include decorating the hallways. Cab's community is relatively welcoming and also generally liberal. Cab could use greater diversity though. Regarding the staff, Cab's teachers are hit or miss. Some teachers are dedicated to their classes, while others shouldn't be paid for what little they do.

I also do not like Cab's individualistic community in that everything feels like a competition. Students take advanced classes in subjects they don't actually enjoy for the credit and join clubs to put them on their college applications. Cab also uses school rank which I think is outdated and proven to be toxic.

Overall, relatively to many other schools in the state, my experience at Cab is pretty good.
