Las Vegas Academy of the Arts is one of the best schools in the state of Nevada. Students are passionate about their majors and are well-prepared for life post-graduate. Students are surrounded by so much creativity and have access to hundreds of job, performance, and discovery opportunities. I could not have imagined spending the most important years of my education anywhere else! LVA is the way to go. Being in the heart of Las Vegas deepens the experience for students. They get to see their talents be applied to the real world. The teachers are so supportive and outgoing and the staff is always doing their best. PARENTS! There are also so many opportunities for parents to help out with school events.

Being a senior, ready to graduate this upcoming semester in 2019, I have experienced what I believe to be the best experience a performing arts school can offer its students. Everything from the diversity to the emphasis on the music department and the outstanding academic opportunities provides a student such as myself a true image of what all schools, public and private, of how school should be everywhere!
I gave my school four stars because of potential. Over four years, I have noticed that administration has anxiety about their reputation of the "mighty arts school." Of course the school being downtown can be seen as dangerous, but I have always felt safe here with the security and teachers keeping watch on the students. The teachers seem to equally care about their students and are most of the time really nice to speak to, even if it's non-academic ideas. Continuing on, I see new building plans and activities added every year to this school, which is amazing considering when I arrived here, that never would have been even thought of. I want to see this school blossom with many new majors and buildings. Teaching not only the arts, but discipline in art, academics, and time management is a crucial part to life, and this school- no- experience is the heart of it.
