New World School of the Arts Reviews

New World has been an unbelievable experience. It is a place where I feel an extreme sense of comfort. Every student admitted has an incredible set of skills, discipline, and personal talent. Each morning, I enter a world full of artists and constant creativity. There is never a day absent of the jubilant and thrilling nature expressed by the student body. My first arrival at the school was an unforgettable experience. There were kids of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, etc. I had never felt more at home. As a gay hispanic, it can be difficult to fit in. At New World School of the Arts, I feel accepted. I am loved and celebrated for my look, my voice, my interests, and ultimately, myself. New World has also been monumental in developing a stronger bond with my parents. The school opened up their eyes to so many important topics. NWSA was my dream school that became a reality. There is no other place to share art full of passion and depth as NWSA.

Although New world School of the Arts is indeed a good school academically and artistically the communication between the academic department and art department is almost nonexistent, this leads to the school being a bit unorganized on planning current school events or field trips which causes teacher lesson plans either being cancelled or even rushed. But on the bright side even though the classes are challenging some/most of the teachers create a welcoming environment and are understanding of a students personal situation and seem to be struggling in school as a result of that issue.
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.
