    "My school is the best art school in New York City, and we have the art to prove it. Every kid in my school is talented, and we are extremely supportive of one another. My school isn't just unique in it's specialization, but in it's staff and students. WE have gallery showings, fashion shows, student versus teacher events, a 'draw-a-thon', and even an arts festival celebrating every aspect if our majors. My experience at Art and Design is positively the most fantastic experience any artist could ever have. I get to paint for almost a two hours every day, and I get help from a professional artist with a passion for teaching. Of course I would go to this school again if I had the chance."

    "Depending on the teacher, the majority are helpful, respectful and care to help. Especially the Art Department. What requires the most improvement is the Math Department."

    "In the High School of Art and Design all the teachers know that art is our passion, and that it is what we live for. They incorporate all the majors into academic projects, and each teacher has a good relationship with each other as well as the students. Due to my school being an art school/ CTE school most, if not all, teachers have developed a 'new age' way of thinking, and are extremely open-minded which is conducive to making students feel safe in their school environment. My school is the best, because of the warm yet challenging atmosphere caused by the incredible teachers that we have."
