I love the people who work in this building. They're very welcoming and caring. And both arts and academic teachers are great at their respective subjects.
Going to JMW was probably the best school experience I’ve had the 14 years I’ve spent as a student. This school is supportive and makes sure that everyone feels welcome. The art programs are fully developed and give good insight while the academics provide everything we need to succeed in the future. It’s a small community so everyone knows everyone and it’s very easy to make a good relationship with the teachers. They have a no bullying policy and the even if there wasn’t, the students wouldn’t have a problem. Everyone gets along and is friendly. Walking down the hall in middle school was the worse experience. I always had my head down and made sure no one was looking at me. JMW gave me the confidence to say hi to people in the halls. I always got put down in the middle school highways but at JMW at least one person would compliment me when I walked by. I love JMW and I loved being able to work with the arts before getting into the field of my choice.
Going to a public arts school was really an amazing experience. You don't have to worry about the "normal" high school issues or having to "fit in". Everyone who goes to this school is unique in their own way and accepting of everyone. Not only are the arts programs incredibly delivered, but the academic classes are also great. At JMW, you become a part of the family.
Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Preforming & Visual Arts is an amazing school for all students of any kind. This school has changed my life. After transferring to three different schools I have found the one that fit me and a school that made me feel safe. This school has nothing that I would really want to see change because they try really hard to fit everyone's needs.
Everyone is supper supporting and it’s a great place to be. You get to go to different arts classes.
The school, though it's an art school, is academically challenging. In no way are academics sacrificed for art at this school. All the professors were passionate and kind. They put their all into their students. Not to mention, the school body is very small. Each student is able to develop close relationships with their professors, as well as other students.
I love Jacqueline M. Walsh because it is a very welcoming environment with wonderful staff and students. It is a small community, ensuring a better personal relationship with teachers. Overall, this school is a good place for students to learn and pursue a hobby or passion they love.
This is a school for artistic students who want to grow and express themselves in a creative environment.
JMW is a school like no other. My classmates are my friends; my teachers are my mentors. Going to this school is an escape from all the negativity of the world. It’s a safe haven where art, music and compassion flood the halls. JMW isn’t just a school, it’s a family.
Jacqueline M Walsh School for the Performing Arts in Pawtucket, RI is a very average school. I enjoy being able to study my art here, but it has its downfalls.
JMW allowed me to become openminded with many varying personalities. I really enjoyed my four years at jmw.
In the four years I attended JMW I have learned so much as an artist and how to perfect my craft. I learned how to take criticism and use it to improve my performances and myself. This school taught me how to have an open mind in any situation I'm in. It also taught me to well-rounded and take every opportunity I'm given to let my voice be heard. JMW has provided a various amount of performance opportunities and guest artist visits which were absolutely amazing and inspiring.
This school gave me the best years of my life. The teachers are 100% committed to giving you the best education. Being the small school it is, you get the opportunity to get close to your peers and teachers. Your teachers get to know you on a personal level and know who you are as a learner. The arts and academics are tied beautifully at JMW as you can relate things in your major to things you are learning in class. The arts course are rigorous, college level curriculums with the teachers working in their respected fields. You're encouraged as a student to go outside and try different electives in the different arts. I myself, am a theatre major and have taken several music electives and loved it. This school and the people who attend are the best. This is an amazing school for anyone who knows that their passion is the arts.
My overall experience at JMW has been great. This school offers you a lot of chances to be in the " real world ". With different types of internships that you can participate in. Being a student is amazing at jmw. we get to enjoy performing art field trips all together as one school, and with it being so small were all very close. You get to major in one specific art weither it maybe dance , music , theater , or visual art. we do not have a sports team so you could join the surrounding areas teams.
All parents care for the arts.
The teachers here really want us to succeed.
There are great opportunities corresponding to each major.
