Savannah Arts Academy Reviews

Savannah Arts Academy is an exceptional high school, which focuses on artists and musicians. The classes are laid out much like a college, with studio classes being a priority. I believe that this helps the students stay focused on their passion and helps them realize that school is not "just about academics". The teachers push their students to do their best and the counselors do a great job in helping the upper-class prepare for college. Let's not forget Mr. Lockley - he is the best principal any student could ask for! He connects with the kids on their level and is always available to ease a dispute between teachers and students whenever necessary - somehow he always finds a way to satisfy everyone's needs. Did I mention the building? It is a piece of artwork in itself, an inspiration to young artists with its decorative columns, high ceilings and large windows. I cannot say enough about this school, it has been a true blessing.
Review Savannah Arts Academy
When I was in elementary school , I had dreams of going to Savannah Arts Academy. It has proved to be the best experience I could have ever hoped for in high school. I have made all of my closest friends here, the ones that I'll keep around for a lifetime. As a visual arts major, I have improved and grown to love the arts so much that I intend to major in Studio Art next year. It's bittersweet to leave my high school behind next year, but the memories will always be there!
Savannah Arts is a school focused on the Arts but also on the academics. Most students can handle the rigorous and creative courses, although some teachers confuse rigor and workload. The athletics do not include football, but the soccer, tennis, golf, volleyball and cross country teams often when or place in championship tournaments. The school is an old historic building and some rooms have been taken care of and some have not. Savannah is increasingly more dangerous, but this school is located in a nicer neighborhood. Diversity is increasing over the years, but there is still a majority white population. There are many asian students from various countries in all of my classes.
