    "The Academy for Performing arts is a school that is like no other. This advanced educational environment not only pushes it's students to work hard, but to strengthen their talents and passions as well. When thinking about a performing arts high school, many people assume APA is a place that refers to academics as a second priority. However, this is extremely wrong. What I admire most about this high school is how there is an even balance between academics and performing. Dancers and actors have the opportunity to strengthen and perfect their trade over four years, as well as their minds. Sending seniors to Kean is another aspect of APA that makes it unique. Experiencing college before high school is even over has prepared me and my peers tremendously. I feel ahead of the game and ready to face my future."

    "I am currently a senior at the Academy for Performing Arts and these past four years have been amazing. I have met some of the greatest people in my life and have had amazing teachers and built relationships with them. This did not feel like a normal high school. It feels like home and when I go to school I feel like I am with my family and not just my teachers. There was only one year I had a not so great math teacher but in any school you will have a teacher like that so I have no complaints."

    "It's a quality performing arts school. People not wanting to get involved in the arts will not be able to escape them. The major classes are demanding and serious, but they teach lessons applicable outside the arts too."

    "Overall the teachers are great people; caring, approachable, friendly. Theatre and dance are the best of the best. However, the maths and sciences are lacking in teachers with a strong command of the subjects."
