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!
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!
I’m in the Visual Arts department the Governor’s School, and I have access to incredible resources and am being exposed to many different people from different backgrounds. From 8:30 to 1:30, we have aced mic classes, and then for the rest of the day we have arts classes that range from ending at 4:30, 6:00 or 8:30. It can be pretty stressful, but everyone at the school is really dedicated to their art and perfecting their craft. I hope I don’t sound cheesy but this school really is different from most other schools, and the strength of the school is the instructors. Both the academic and arts teachers are fantastic, they genuinely care about what they’re teaching which is refreshing. While it is miles better than my old school, I can’t give this school a perfect score. There are some flaws that come with a boarding school, such as strict residence life staff, curfews, and other bureaucratic stuff.
