Toledo School for the Arts Reviews
Not really an "arts school" but rather a typical high school with arts electives. Arts are not integrated into the academic classes as one might expect. This school is known around Toledo for its overwhelming amount of homework. Even weekends and holidays are full of homework that was assigned at the start of the weekend/break and due upon return from break. TSA does not practice "equal opportunity" for all students. Many favorites chosen in dance and theater. Others do not have a chance to advance in those classes or perform on stage. How is a student to gain experience if they do not perform in front of others? Administration does not want to hear from parents or students regarding ideas to benefit the school or issues that arise at the school. Most troubling are teachers who every year belittle and bully students in their classrooms while administration does nothing, even promotes them to teach the CCP courses. Parent org sadly lacks any initiative to address issues.
A blessing I’ve had in my life was being able to attend a performing arts middle and high school that has also contributed to the openness of my views. It has taught me that a sense of community is incredibly important to succeeding as a group. I think I work better in groups because I’ve had an immense amount of experience working with classmates on a common goal. At Toledo School for the Arts, we value everyone and who they choose to be. We aren’t prejudice because every student and faculty member is so unique in their own way that we would become hypocrites if we were discriminatory. Because of this, everyone has their own story and values to pass on. It truly seems like there is an unlimited amount of knowledge you can obtain by just talking to an individual here. I am incredibly thankful and lucky to have been able to attend this school for 6 years and walk away with all the experiences and life lessons it has taught me.
I’ve had three children through TSA, and I wouldn’t dream of sending them anywhere else! We have great suburban public schools and private schools to choose from, also. TSA is an amazing school whose results speak for themselves!
