The Chicago Academy for the Arts Reviews
DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE STAFF. Every single teacher I've had has cared about each individuals students growth and success. It took me a whole year to write a decent paper and once I wrote one my English teacher pulled me aside after class and PERSONALLY expressed to me how impressed he was at how much I had grown from my last paper. Arts teachers are just as great, in media arts specifically we have personal mid & end of year reviews where our teachers come together and tell you where you need to improve & what you're doing right
Since coming here my art has GREATLY improved.
