This school is fabulous if your children love the arts. The principal is wonderful! I can't say enough good things about him. Even the students love him. Also, there are so many amazing teachers here, far more than I have found at other schools. Yes, there are some that are not so great, but every school has a mixture. This school has more of the excellent ones, than I have seen anywhere. My kids are less tense, less overwhelmed, less filled with anxiety than they were at their other high schools. There is such a diverse mixture of students here that my children are comfortable being who they are here. The teachers and counselors really work with you, they know the kids, they are really helping with the college apps. Sometimes I wish we had started here at the beginning of high school or even in middle school, but we didn't, and we are here now. I couldn't be happier with the results.

It's great school for the arts! The teachers, staff, and some of the students inspire the other students to stive for their passions in their artform. Also, academics isn't left behind because they try to balance art and academics.
Well SCPA is filled with very talented students, and we all respect one another. If someone believed in God, such as myself, no one disrespects my beliefs even if they may not agree, and it is the same situation if the tables were turned. All of the teachers know how to be leaders, and know how to understand each students. SCPA is a school where parents can safely know that their child is doing just fine, because the people there are just wonderful. Even the "popular" kids are great people as well, everything about SCPA is just amazing.
