Fiorello H. Laguardia High School Of Music & Art & Performing Arts Reviews

The students there are so kind and welcoming, you're bound to fit in somewhere! Everyone is soooo talented and the shows put up are extraordinary, close to entering a Broadway theater or an art museum. The personality of the school is so unique. We always end up on the news several times a year. In addition, LaGuardia is in such a beautiful, safe, and wonderful neighborhood of the Upper West Side near Columbus Circle and Central Park. I am a graduating senior and I had an amazing time. I can't judge the school based on some of the bad apples, as the only important things I will remember are the good times.

It is soooo much fun! It really is like high school musical. You can’t walk through the 4th floor without the sweet sound of music filling your ears. You can find someone to match any personality. It is the most diverse environment you could be in, and it’s big enough that you don’t have to be friends w everyone, and still know plenty of people. The deans, coaches, teachers, and even guidance counselors are usually really easy to talk to. (Besides a handful but that’s everywhere). You can get an amazing musical and academic education and you have a lot of freedom. I can’t wait for quarantine to be over to go back! It’s only downfall is when the escalators don’t work :(
I am an art major. Although I have my problems with LaGuardia, I could not imagine myself anywhere else. Yes, the hours are long, but we also have up to FOUR art classes PER DAY. Sometimes the teachers assign "boring" projects, or do not offer enough critisism. Regardless, we are still practicing art every day, and therefore improving. The academics are strong here, and students don't seem to have a hard time getting into competitive schools out of LaGuardia. There is a mental health crisis because LaGuardia does not provide a lot of systems to combat anxiety and depression. The student body is working on that, and there is a new principal who will hopefully help improve LaGuardia in that regard. There aren't really cliques, as everyone just hangs out with each other. I have a ton of different friend groups. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the sgo lag instagram page!
