Most of my experience here has been wonderful. There have been a couple of teachers here and there that weren't that good at all but the majority are amazing. I couldn't help but notice how invested the teachers are in the students success and have even developed some amazing bonds with some of my teachers. For an arts school, the academics are pretty good and of course the different art strands are also amazing. It's a very free and independent environment but the faculty members give help if you seek it out (counselling, recommendations, scholarship opportunities, tutoring, etc...) which I think is perfect when trying to get highschoolers to get used to a college environment. My only problem is that certain higher up administrators have been slacking and don't treat every strand with the same respect which is totally unfair but other than that, everything here is pretty nice.

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.
