I’m in the Visual Arts department the Governor’s School, and I have access to incredible resources and am being exposed to many different people from different backgrounds. From 8:30 to 1:30, we have aced mic classes, and then for the rest of the day we have arts classes that range from ending at 4:30, 6:00 or 8:30. It can be pretty stressful, but everyone at the school is really dedicated to their art and perfecting their craft. I hope I don’t sound cheesy but this school really is different from most other schools, and the strength of the school is the instructors. Both the academic and arts teachers are fantastic, they genuinely care about what they’re teaching which is refreshing. While it is miles better than my old school, I can’t give this school a perfect score. There are some flaws that come with a boarding school, such as strict residence life staff, curfews, and other bureaucratic stuff.

By far the best institution in the state! The faculty in both arts and academics are amazing, many of them hold doctorate degrees in their respective fields.
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.
