Henry ford academy has many great opportunities for artist or people looking forward to becoming one. Henry Ford academy school for creative studies has many great classes including digital art, graphic design, Crafts and fibers, and many more classes,while also juggling math,science, social studies,workshop,and much more. This school really helps students become adults and prepare students for the real world and teach students to always be prepared for whatever is heading their way. I can proudly say all staff members and teachers are fully focused on making sure every student succeeds. Extracurricular activities are also something that students and staff put together for students to have even more knowledge and experience outside of the learning space. Some extracurricular activities include volleyball,softball,basketball,baseball, Ect. This school is very consistent on everything that they do and I would highly recommend anyone to attend the school.

My experience at HFA:SCS was very unique. Its very unusual which is good. You dont want to go to a school that's similar to others but instead, go to a diverse one. Go to one that isnt as popular and will let a light shine. I have lots of memories here. I learned a lot here and took the curriculum seriously. This is why inam the Salutatorian of 2017 because it is the school for success also for art students. It's a school for a god giving talent. Eventhought it didnt have football for me, I was still satisfied and it was meant for me to be here.
Me being at HFA: SCS has been an amazing experience because I have gotten to learn how to be creative and show people my creative art abilities. Also showing how I was terrible at drawing to showing my masterpieces. I love this school because it brings more of you out every year and the longer you are there at the school the more you get to communicate with others and show how you did terrible with drawing and turning that into a masterpiece. I just love it because when you're here at this school you find more of yourself through your art piece and what point are you trying to get across to others in the art shows that we have. Not only are you getting better in art but getting better with forming a relationship with staff and communicating with your classmates. The longer you stay at this school you form a bond like a family bond and that's what makes it more fun at HFA: SCS.
