Weaver Academy is a great school to attend if you want to further your experience within your performing art. But the academics are a lot harder than a normal high school, that being there can be a heavy workload. You just have to prepare yourself physically and mentally for it. The school itself needs a lot of updating, or all in all a new school needs to be built. The ceilings are falling apart, we have classes outside in trailers, etc. The people there are mediocre, you will have your pros and cons for teachers and staff. But again all in all it is a decent school to attend, your pva teachers are usually phenomenal and you can easily build up your resume or portfolio!

Weaver Academy is the most amazing school and I am so lucky to have attended it! My home school is Grimsley, but I was allowed to attend Weaver full-time as a CTE student. In my years at Weaver, I was able to take 14 computer science classes! I feel like I am very prepared to attend college as well as I have an insight into what I want to study at college. The classes were small and the teachers very knowledgeable! The teachers clearly enjoy what they teach as well as working with students. The principle runs a tight ship that allows students and teachers to blend well together.
I love Weaver Academy. The academics are excellent and challenging. Weaver allows self expression and supports individuality which I love. It allows students to focus in particular areas of interest which can help them choose a career path. The energy of the school is always positive and uplifting and it is a great place to learn new things!
