SC Governor's School for Arts & Humanities Reviews
I had a wonderful experience with the Governor’s School! I was a student for one summer and three years and learned so much about myself as an artist, a scholar, and an independent individual. The residential element is an element that sets this school above the rest by bringing artist from all over SC together to truly embrace their creativity without a cent in tuition! For me, it was a hard adjustment as a sophomore to move into a dorm an hour and a half away from home after just turning 15, but my peers and the staff helped with this transition and made my time at Governor’s School a phenomenal experience!
This place has great teachers, technology, and all the resources you could imagine. Staying here will introduce you to many different types of art and people. The process to get in the school is a bit tedious, but it is definitely an accomplishment to be accepted. Because of Coronavirus, the switch to virtual has hit the school pretty hard. There is a very vocal student council that works with administration that has been super helpful during all of it. I would say the only things I would like to see change is the food (at is can sometimes not be hot, there is little to choose from if you have dietary restrictions, and can be just plain gross sometimes) and the school culture. I wouldn’t consider the art departments to be competitive, but filled with gossip. There is most definitely a hierarchy of departments and it’s painfully obvious when you’re there. But I think, as a student, the friends you make there is what makes it worth it. Also, downtown greenville is so fantastic.
The sense of community here is very very strong, the teachers and staff genuinely care about you, you get more responsibility by starting to live on your own, and you grow more as a person and in your art area. Go Govies!
