Stivers School for the Arts Reviews

183 reviews

I just want to start off by saying this school is an amazing school! However it’s best to start when you’re in the 7th grade if you get accepted, because with me it was a little hard to adapt coming in my Junior year and that comes from me having to leave a school I have been at since my 7th grade year. I really enjoy dancing (which is my art) and it’s amazing to be surrounded with students that have the same special talent as you. Everyone at Stivers is there because of a special art or talent that they have, you can’t just get in because it’s a public school. You have to be “accepted” upon auditioning, being that it’s a Performing Arts school. I wouldn’t trade my experince at Stivers for the world, I have learned soooo much being at Stivers and I’m thankful for that.

Stivers School for the Arts is full of students who are very passionate about their art. Their dedication is very inspiring, and the arts magnet directors want you to succeed. They can show favoritism though, which can limit opportunities for others because the same people always get chosen to do things. The students are great...sometimes. It really depends on who you want to be around. Be wary of who your real friends are because there are A LOT of fake people and they have plenty of followers. Good luck, keep your head high, and you will succeed!
Stivers is actually a school I would definitely recommend to incoming 7th graders. There is a saying that goes around "only at Stivers" meaning you'll be sitting in the cafeteria during C lunch and then a group of guys will come out out of the orchestra room and play a little gig. Or you'll be sitting in class and here a group of people walking down the hallway singing a sing together, and soon the whole class breaks in singing the song. Stivers has given so many life changing experiences, and resources that I would have never gotten at a regular school. Whether it be your first time performing at the masonic or getting the chance to debut a song. Stivers is an amazing school!
