Little Black Pearl Art & Design high school Is a wonderful school. My experience with Little Black Pearl was amazing. I'm able to be myself like I'm at home because of the school environment. My school has alot of opportunities that I'm able to be a part of. I was able to grow and experience things since I've been there.

This school Is good to when You need or want to seek in a new opportunity such as internships and jobs. But being here can be a bit difficult and challenging if you hang with the wrong people but I feel that the only way you can survive is if you stay to your self and to have a few good friends and do your work because the work there is simple at times than other high schools. But if you are good at art or have any performing arts ability this school is for you But at the end of the day it like a family the staff is there for you and it is a small high school so you wont be just another number.
The extra activities get students active and focused. The after school programs actually motivate students to want better for themselves. We have glass blowing after school, basketball and many more activities. The staff Also make sure everyone eats there
