Gramercy Arts High school gave me so many opportunities and it helped me develop and improve skills I once did not have! This Highschool introduced me to programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters which is a college readiness program. Helped me with my confidence that I joined the drama club and even performed in numerous shows. My communication skills improved from 9th to 12th grade. Lastly, teachers make sure you’re really learning and understanding the material handed to you!

I rate my Experience at Gramercy Arts High School with Five stars! because being a student and at gramercy Arts has change my life completely, I have become someone far from the the first year I step into the school. I have become part of Gramercy and Gramercy has become part of me, Just like gramercy has influence me I try to influence it too, by join the clubs that the school offers. one of the clubs that I like the most is the SGO (Student Government Organization), which has allow me to have a bigger voice in the school since I was announce President. I have the job to lead school activities and other stuff, I would recommend anyone to come to Gramercy arts. You will not regret it.
Gramercy Arts has been, in my experience, the first time I have ever felt this free within a school. The students are loud, only because of their confidence and firm beliefs. The students are dreamers, and are not limited to what they fear or cannot do, but what they know they do not want to do. Other schools I've seen are at times seemingly assimilated, in how they are driven only by academics and no other source of passion, and their strangely and scarily similar sense of success; becoming a doctor/lawyer/therapist etc because that's what seems to bring in the most stable money, or what their parents want. The transition from those kinds of schools to Gramercy, with its sanguine, unique environment, with each student being so individual with clear character and strength, was the most confusingly, unexpectedly, yet positive thing to happen thus far.
