It is an amazing school! The arts are top notch and in fact, better than what you will find in most universtities. As a person, I have grown so much and experienced what it means to really be a part of something important!

The Governor's School has definitely pushed me in the right direction for my professional and career-based future. It has given me the opportunity to spend every day working and perfecting the art area I intend to dedicated my college education to. It's basically a miniature college, but with the restrictions high school students need ( such as city boundaries, closed facilities at night, and blocked websites). Classes are hard, they're time consuming, and physically taxing, but it has given me a taste of college, and a better transition from normal public high school to rigorous college courses. Thanks to the teachers and training here, I've been able to keep a leveled and realistic sight on the future and where I can end up, instead of overshooting my dreams and aspirations which has helped me a lot in the college process.
I had a wonderful experience attending the Governor's School for the Arts. My academic teachers and art teachers challenged me and help me to grow as an artist. The location of the school is perfect, right downtown in the middle of the great city of Greenville which is such a wonderful city for the arts. I gained experiences that I never would have gained if I had continued to go to public school.
