I love my school, named the Orange County School of the Arts. The students are very kind and everyone has so much talent. Every single person works hard to get where they are and are very dedicated to their academics and art. The teachers/staff are very devoted to the students and help them become the best they can be. Everyone is very supportive at this school and the resources and facilities provided are amazing! I love going to this school everyday. My school could improve in developing their clubs more but I believe overall this is an amazing school that pushes its students to do well.

My time at Orange County School of the Arts has been an amazing experience. I am part of the conservatory Integrated Arts and it has given me the opportunity to explore so many different art forms that I love including screenwriting, stage combat, and theatrical make-up. The academics are very rigorous as well and we have fantastic teachers who are passionate about their work. I particularly love the language programs. I was personally able to explore Spanish for four years and now I am attending a Mandarin class. Additionally, I love being a part of the Taekwondo program and having the opportunity to participate in rank testings. I have learned so much in this loving and accepting community of artists!
The talent and passion within this school is amazing. Students learn to manage a vigorous schedule filled with both academics and their specialized art form(most students also do outside extracurricular, going above and beyond). Every student needs to maintain a certain GPA to even attend the school which shows how hard working, dedicated, and well rounded the students there are! The teachers in general are great as well! Amazing school.
