    "Art and Design High School has several resources for students. Unfortunately the teaching and supporting faculty does little to support the students. If a child is driven and self-motivated, then they might to fairly well terms of grades. This school does not teach to varied learning styles or seem to care that children need to feel emotionally safe in order to focus and be engaged. We have had several negative experiences stemming from lack of communication from teachers. This is a big problem."

    "I first thought that this school would be wonderful for my sons artistic talents. Unfortunately, it has turned into a total nightmare. His schedule not once but twice. The second time it was done, he wasn't even notified of the change, neither were his old teachers. I would NOT recommend this school. There is absolutely NO communication."

    "I 100% do NOT recommend this school. The administration is VERY RUDE, and unhelpful! I tried applying, and they rejected me, because I wanted to enroll into twelfth grade, and not ninth. The principal had the nerve to look me in the eye and imply that I would tarnish the school if he accepted me, by saying that they "do have a reputation to upkeep." He tried to convince me that I do not need this school, and that I should get my GED and go to college. He told me that they are not giving me a rejection, but not a yes, either. Also, I will thank them one day. I did not feel thankful at all for having wasted over three hours of my day (Oh, YES, because even though they did not even CONSIDER to let me enroll, they gave me the audition test to take anyway)"

    "This school is really great and supportive. It has changed my life since middle school. I was introverted scared of everything but this community at this school gave me so much support and helped me grow both as an artist and as a person. It helped me discover myself. It understood my problems and the non- judgmental type environment made it feel like home."
