Osceola County School for the Arts Reviews

365 reviews
All Categories
The Osceola County School for the Arts offers a variety of incredible opportunities to its student body. For instance, there are a variety of "majors" at the school in accordance to vocal, visual arts, tech, band, orchestra, dance, and creative writing. Students are able to have groups of friends that share the same interests as them outside of the classroom, which lessens the emotional stress some individuals might feel when meeting new people. Although sports are not a priority here, there are many academic benefits, such as encouragement towards taking higher level classes. OCSA is the only school in the county (at the moment) to offer the AP Capstone diploma, which is designed to enhance the research, argumentative, collaborative, and presentation skills of students rather than teaching subject-specific content. Specifically, at OCSA, the courses required for the AP Capstone diploma (AP Seminar and AP Research) are taught in an enjoyable and comfortable environment.

My experience in Osceola county school for the arts is amazing. It's an art school that provides Dance, Drama, Visual arts, Technical theater, Vocal, Band and Orchestra. This school helps those get ready for their next step in their art areas and also for those who don't want to do their art major in the college. This school focuses on everyone's future but Juniors and Seniors are their priority since we are closer to our futures then the lower class-men. Even though this school doesn't have sports program, the students can tryout for their home zone school teams, and that's what I love. Administration supports everything you do and they attend games even when sports isn't apart of the school. This school's faculty and staff simply just wants to set a up a plan for every student so that they achieve their life goals.
