L.A. County High School for the Arts Reviews
Studying at LACHSA for nearly 4 years, I became more receptive to abstract and conceptual ideas. I learned more about art history, new materials such as oil painting and figure drawing! LACHSA also provided seasonal exhibiting opportunities(Winter and Spring Show) for students to show their work produced in class. Overall, an amazing art education and experience!
Very Great Arts school! Although we are on the college campus we as the students little to none ever interact with the college students, but you do somewhat get the college feel as you have to navigate your way through the big campus to get to your next class. Many believe that our academics are below average, but they are just as challenging as any other high school would. You will need time management on your side as you know having to balance both academic and art homework. If you are considering coming here I hope you make the choice to audition and give it your all! Good Luck!
LACHSA is probably the premiere arts high school in the United States. People from all over the country come to attend! The only gripe I have with the school is that because artists think and live very differently from most, the drug use in recent years has increased. That's not to say the school is bad because the arts programs are second to none.
