I loved how during your first year there, you are able to go through all the majors. Having a taste for each major and seeing what you fall in love with along with sticking with it for the rest of your high school career. You also see yourself grow, but not only that others can see it in you as well and it's a great environment of support in that school.
The best part about Lower Manhattan Arts Academy is the amount of time, care, and effort that every single teacher provides for each student. There is not one teacher that won't be there to help you if needed. I am not only taught the basic education in order to take state tests, but to be more aware of what's going on in the world and to think more critically in all that is put in my way. Some thing that can change in the school is more funding in order to provide more supplies for the arts. We have four majors within the school which are art, music, dance, and drama. If there were more funding in tools, supplies, and products for these majors would allow students to create new and I mproved shows and art.
