    "One great thing about OSA, is that you feel loved."

    "I came to this school in junior year after 2 years in a public high school and it is honestly incredible. The teachers are wonderful, the kids are great, the area is always happening etc. I really enjoy my classes and genuinely learn so much every day. There are a lot of kids who have gone to OSA since 6th grade and don't understand how good they have it, but as someone who has outside perspective/experience with normal high school, this place is like fairyland."

    "Oakland School for the Arts has been the most unique experience of my life, and I wouldn't trade that experience for the world. The arts teachers have groomed me to be prepared for a career in the arts, and their mentoring caused me to grow not only as an artist, but as a person. However, in some ways our academics are left in the dust. While our English and History departments are strong and successful in teaching creative minds, our Math and Science departments are greatly lacking. It's understandably hard to teach such empirical subjects to such unique students as we are, but the lack of funding and support is upsetting. OSA has room to improve, but I'm proud to say that I am who I am because of my school."

    "This is the best school I have ever been to. The students are very driven in their artistic values, very creative in both the arts and academics, and teachers enhance students artistic personalities by including art in to the curriculum. I would definitely choose this school all over again because of the hard work and dedication from the teachers, staff, and students."

    "I've learned a lot from my academic instructors, but my arts instructors have turned a love of art into competition and now I don't like my art classes."
