Walnut Hill School for the Arts
Alum: Walnut Hill Provides young people with a chance to hone their craft and live their dream every day of the week. Academics are brilliant and have small focused classes. You don't sacrifice any of your academics for arts here; you get it all.
On the downside- I attended Walnut Hill for my junior and senior years. Before that I attended one of the most underfunded public schools in the nation. Bringing a bunch of "big-fish-small-pond", talented, young people together... having them live together, attend every class together-- creates a level of immaturity and selfishness I had never experienced. The students here represent the utter lack of compassion and perspective- the literal problem with America. I had to remind myself to separate from the constant drama and focus on why I was there-- the music.
The music is truly incredible. No other high school works with a real Conservatory (NEC), and no other high school will prepare young musicians better than Walnut Hill.
