Frank Sinatra High School of the Arts has changed my life. I am now a 2020 graduating student of Sinatra and despite everything that has, unfortunately, came about in our world my school has continued to keep our school spirit alive and thriving in our academics and arts. On Instagram, we have started the hashtag #sinatrastrong where we post things weekly. These posts include encouraging messages from all our teachers and staff, performances from all of our majors (drama, dance, vocal, film, fine art), and so much more. Throughout my time at Sinatra, I have been able to find myself and realize that there is so much more that young people can contribute to the world through art and various talents. I was able to find myself and come into my own person who is able to freely and passionately express myself in so many ways and not just conform to one "societal-norm" but to strive to be different and creative no matter who or what tries to detour you from that. I will always remember FSSA!

During my time at Frank Sinatra School of the Arts High School, I had a great experience! When I couldn't understand a topic I was learning in class many of the teachers would allow one-on-one tutoring after school. For me, I was in a sport's team, technical theater, and clubs which many it hard for me to attend those tutoring sessions. However, even though I had other priorities after school, the teachers were very understanding of my situation and would arrange additional tutoring sessions to accommodate with my busy schedule.
My overall experience at the Frank Sinatra school of the Arts was pretty great. The schedule was pretty intense as I was in the music department and was apart of the musical that puts thousands of hours of work from the Summer to March when we open. The school taught me a lot about being a good performer, person, and artist. The school allowed a space for students to grow and meet other talented kids with similar interests in intensive artistic study. Some change id love to see would be more performance opportunities individually for instrumental students as we don't really get a chance to prepare for performing large solo works with accompaniment unless you win the concerto competition your senior year. Allowing more opportunities to play from your freshman year builds confidence in players abilities and I will it will help the overall orchestra as well because people are more confident behind their instruments.
