    "I am an alumni of the school and now my daughter attends the school. I have noticed changes since my attendence but for the better; especially by adding dance as a new major which we did not have before. I moved back to NJ from PA but not immediately to Newark and what I noticed that we do not have in many of Newark Magnet schools are strong PTA's. Parents please get involved in the PTA it makes a big difference in the performance of our schools as a whole trust me I am witness to it. I am a single mother, very demanding career and still managed to participate. Students feel they dont have a voice it is apart of our job as parents to make that happen, If they feel they are not getting the proper teachings in academics that too is apart of our job to make that happen. Arts High School of Newark is a wonderful school and can provide a promising future for many of our urban children let help to uphold its great reputation by getting involved."

    "disgrace, and it's sad that anyone would mislead people by telling them otherwise. there exists only a small handful of dedicated teachers in this school (which you could count on one hand) who are wonderful but not enough for an entire school. Over the past years the administration as well as newark public schools overall has been more concerned with it's image and maintaining their jobs than the individual well-being, growth, and education of each student artistically and academically. Don't waste your child's time...."

    "I Agree with the statement made before that the principal does not allow the flow of creativity that should exist in such a school. I have lived elsewhere , another state and same type school where you walk in and right away the ambience is that of creatiivity and free expression. Don't get me wrong , discipline is still needed. She also does not make it her business as principal to be present at the events that her kids participate in , her presence should be always heartfelt and the kids themselves sense this. The vice principal is much more personable and has a much more keen and pleasant approach with both kids and parents. I hope that a change will come soon, especially maybe under our new Governor's administration. Not that it is my wish that anyone be out of a job but the best man deserves the JOB."
