    "Of course, no school is perfect. This school, however, is the closest resemblance of a safe haven that I've ever encountered. I recently graduated after spending 3 years at GPFAA, and my experience has been nothing short of wonderful. The competition, encouragement, and opportunities offered here are truly endless. I love the teachers, rigorous academics, and closeness of students within the strands (mine of which was orchestra). The atmosphere is small, yet welcoming and exciting. Some students taking multiple AP classed found it difficult to adjust to the new accelerated block schedule. I am sure that as time passes, students will become better acclimated and seasoned to it. I highly recommend that anyone interested in furthering their artistic and educational abilities audition for this school. It's become a second home to me, and I'd love to see others experience that!"

    "Come here if you want to pursue the fine arts for a living. If not, I recommend going elsewhere because the academics are decent but not outstanding. Come here if you want to blend in for the most part because everyone is the best at what they do."

    "What I like most about Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy is how there is always a close bond within each strand and an overall good relationship with teachers. I honestly have to say that this school is very competitive, which is a good thing knowing that it has been open for four years and in those four years each strand has won many awards. For instance the Vocal Music strand was able to take 10 All- Staters to TMEA in San Antonio. 10 was the highest in the district. Over all this school is amazing but like all other schools there is always flaws."

    "As a student, I feel the school gives a good balance between rigorous academics and the passion and drive of our fine arts "strand." Overall a good option for passionate student and who care about school and want a unique experience."

    "The academics are great but I feel students don't get to experience all the courses they want or need."
