The learning environment is outstanding due to the great staff. If you’re having an issue whether it’s school related or not, the staff cares enough to listen and gives great advice on how to handle the situations as I know from experience. Stilwell is like one big family that’s bonded together through the arts. The fine arts teachers for each major are outstanding at what they do and presents great showcases throughout the school year. Overall, Stilwell is a great school, and I am proud to say that I’ve attended all four years here and will be graduating with the Class of 2019. Thank you Stilwell!

Martha Ellen Stilwell School of the Arts was the first high school I attended. My first impression of the school was "Wow, this looks like some kind of school out of one of those high school drama movies." In the front was tall glass windows, it was three levels high, and it was well taken care of. However, this was not why I enjoyed going to this school. It was the teachers, students, and activities only Stilwell offered that stood out. Unlike other schools, Stilwell had no sports. However, they did offer classes of the arts, including things like piano, drama, chorus, guitar, and art. The school also had specific teachers devoted to these arts and you could feel their passion in their teaching. Not to mention the diversity of the students. Apart from the teachers, the students made the school a great experience. They all wanted to learn a specific type of art and this made it easy to find people who had the same kind of talent and passion as I did.
Stilwell is an amazing place for students who want to be prepared to compete globally. This school offers an enriching and engaging environment that allows students to be the next future innovators and thinkers. In addition, Stilwell offers a variety of classes that prepare you to excel in both your fine arts and future endeavors. With a diverse population of students, Stilwell promotes a welcoming environment.
