Everyone (including me) whose been a student at G-Star loves to talk badly about it but honestly, if I hadn't gone to a school with such high diversity, freedom of expression, and independence I wouldn't have accomplished as much as I have at such a young age! Independent art students, like me, thrive when we aren't having our "hand held", and a majority of the teachers here understand that. There are no sports at all (except for the kids who throw footballs around during lunch), but G-Star makes up for that in film events! There's always something film related going on around campus, whether that be a celebrity is making a guest appearance, or they need extras.
G-Star isn't the BEST school around, but I'm happy with the tools I've acquired and the connections I've made there, and I'm ecstatic to see where I land next!

GStar School of the Arts was a perfect match for my son academically, creatively, socially, and in its ability to prepare him for the rigors of college leading to a degree in engineering! At GStar he was encouraged to soar and excelled in his creative arts classes as well as in math and science. His teachers at GStar were highly professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to his success as a student and individual. I highly recommend GStar to any family looking for a school with strong academics, an accepting and creative environment, filled with highly skilled and dedicated teachers. GStar is awesome!
G- Star School of the Performing Arts is an excellent educational facility .Our daughter enjoys going to school everyday. She feels safe and welcome in a diverse environment where she can create and learn.The teachers, faculty and staff are supportive to both the students and parents. Great school!
