New World School of the Arts Reviews

I was in the vocal performance program at NWSA and I couldn't be prouder to have been a fighting pigeon! New World is not your typical high school, there are so many talented individuals with so many different passions every corner you turn. The teachers there really care about you, your talents, your ambitions and at the end of the day, they want you to succeed. Before I attended high school I had such a hard time with being bullied and being made fun of. I use to hate going to school. I would try anything and everything to excuse myself out of school. Luckily, New World NEVER had any of that! I not once experienced anything but love and happiness from every single individual at that school, even from the people I didn't know! I will always speak highly of my high school because they truly made going to school and incredible experience!

In these past four years at New World School of the Arts, I've explored my artistic and academic abilities to its fullest potential through remarkable faculty, courses, and curriculum. New World's high school Theater faculty teaches college-level courses on techniques, improvisation, Shakespeare, dance, movement, voice, and more. As well as artistically, academics are as demanding, especially higher-level courses, which are taken by the majority of students. New World is the longest lasting school day in Miami-Dade County, not including the after-school rehearsals and shows which can last until 9:30 PM. New World is not for everybody, the timeless hours, draining classes, excessive homework, lack of sleep, and constant need for caffeine can lead people to insanity. But New World is truly like no other; the students are passionate and driven, determined to move mountains with their art and minds.
New World is an exceptional school with a great sense of community! It offers demanding academics and arts. It has AP and honors courses and some of MDC's BFA curriculum is taught at the high school. The teachers encourage students to learn and succeed and the kids support each other. At New World, a hardworking and focused child who lives and breathes the arts will grow into an exceptional artist and person, prepared for college and life.
