    "My arts teachers are more devoted to helping students than my academic teachers. But overall most of the teachers I've had were very supportive and understanding."

    "After a performance at my school my father greeted me with flowers. Along with that, many other parents were complimenting me on my performance. That experience made me feel welcomed."

    "Five years at Northwest has made me realize that first impressions aren't always what they appear. For a school so "loving", there's an awful lot of drama and cliqueness; the arts don't work together, they compete, with Musical Theatre usually given top priority. As a regular Theatre major, I'll tell you this; if you aren't a dedicated Musical Theatre kid, run. You run so far. Your talent, which you surely have, won't be appreciated, and you'll begin to doubt yourself. The competition in every major is venomous, and you'll lose friends easily for it. Overall a very lack-lustre school. Did not enjoy my time here."

    "Not many high school students can say they have received the opportunities to fly through the air, dance on scaffolding, or perform on the largest stage in their city. Through Northwest School of the Arts I have experienced things that exceed the expected for a child involved in the performing arts. I have had to embrace uncertainty and welcome the unknown in order to grow as a person and an artist. There have been late nights that have only turned into early morning, before school rehearsals, but I would not trade it for anything. The amount of self respect, confidence, understanding, and compromise I have had to obtain I only see as valuable for future purposes. If I am able to say that this school-with all of the literal blood, sweat, and tears-has made a lasting impact on my heart and character, I believe that my time in those old buildings has been worth it. I may not have had Friday night football games to attend, but I have to say that nothing beats the sight of stage lights shining down."

    "Northwest School of the arts is overall a great school to attend. The students are very focused and have much ambition, although the school has drastically changed. I enjoyed my first two years at Northwest school of the arts. The teachers were very friendly, the students were very friendly- and the environment was very closely-knitted together and family-like. For many students including myself, I saw the school,at one point, like a safe haven. I enjoyed the tremendous passion that the teachers had and their love for teaching students. I enjoyed my experience overall- but I especially enjoyed my freshman and sophomore years at Northwest, because my arts teachers especially pushed me beyond my breaking point- and challenged me to see the potential I really had."
