I love my high school, FSSA, because of all the talented students and teachers who make this school an exceptional place to study the arts. I am currently a dance major and my dance teachers are incredible; they expect the best from their students and always make sure that they achieve their highest potential. Additionally, the shows featured at my school are wonderfully acted and performed - the singing, dancing, acting and instrumental performances are top-notch, and, dare I say, can rival Broadway anytime!

Frank Sinatra is my home. My experience here has been more than amazing, as I've had so much opportunity being a percussionist. Sinatra taught me how to be a leader, as well as teach me life skills that I will need later on down the road. Teachers have inspired me to do my best, and change the world. As well as my learning experiences there, the one thing I love the most about Sinatra is that is extremely diverse, but more than accepting of students with different backgrounds. All of my peers come from different cultures and religions, which allows me to be extremely open minded, and curious to learn more about the world around me.
Being in a society full of multi-talented artist made me work twice as hard then the pace that I was going. My favorite part of FSSA is the environment. You are consistently surrounded by people who want to be great. FSSA taught me that experience is the best teacher. There are many opportunities for you to be exposed to. The performing arts programs that my school offers should be in all schools to continue to expose students to "world-wide" languages of art. Tony Bennett the founder of my school and his wife Susan Benedetto dreamt of creating a school that would teach students a lifelong lesson of appreciating their uniqueness. If it was not for Frank Sinatra’s talented gifts that inspired Tony Bennett, then I would not be the artist that I am today.
