Savannah Arts Academy provides a learning environment that promotes social growth as well as academic growth. I loved being able to balance vigorous academic subjects with my art classes. The teachers are helpful and nice, and the principal is awesome! The students all support each other, whether it's applauding their performance in a play, a dance, a concert, or and art show. I loved going to school everyday and I will miss this school when I graduate!

I am currently a senior at Savannah Arts and I love it. I transferred in after freshman year and it was a super smooth and easy process. All the teachers are amazing and super helpful. The administration and counselors provide the best resources and help to make sure you succeed. Although a visual and performing arts school, Savannah Arts is very academically challenging, but provides a healthy competitive environment for its students. The students are extremely progressive, forward thinking, and open minded. Savannah Arts instills skills and lessons into it students that will help them throughout your life. I am sad to leave, but extremely excited to use what I learned here in my college career.
This school provides a unique experience where the art courses are just as important and as rigorous as the academic classes. From musicals, and choir performances to art shows and film festivals, Savannah Arts Academy is the perfect place for high school students to express their talents and creativity. The opportunities that this school offers are unlike most schools. These include an annual fashion show, also known as junk2funk, participation in local operas and art or music festivals, guest speakers, and more. In addition, the academic courses are taught by a wonderful staff of teachers who are understanding of the importance of the arts elective courses. Overall, my experience at this school is something I will never forget.
