This school has prepared me for college. It has given me the tools to be a better individual, student, and artist through the challenges it posed before me. I walked onto the campus lacking self-acceptance. And now, I walk off looking for ways to express my newly-found identity. It was not easy, however. Living away from your parents forces you to enter adulthood sooner than expected. Yet, that should be seen as a positive rather than a negative. SCGSAH is foreign environment at first. But as you experience your transformation into a young adult, so does the school, transforming its identity into your second home.

It’s a great place for young adults to grow in their art and grow as a person. Everyone is so accepting of all kinds of people with different ideas and opinions. It’s a place where teachers, students and parents all have positive experiences. I love this place!
The governor's school holds a safe environment. The arts faculty and academic teachers are always willing to help their students. However, the residential life services fail to provide students with a true "being on your own experience". There are very strict and early curfews. Being able to go downtown and experience the city of Greenville alone is impossible. There was a pretty diverse community of students at the school. As an alumni, the administration should be more lenient in trusting students.
