    "This school is amazing! Im a 10th grade visual artist and never want to leave. The teachers are so nice and really care about the students. CAPA isnt just strong in the arts they reinforce the education also. I never thought i would understand high school math but i do and my teacher knows how to help me understand the topics. If your doubting sending your child here, dont. They will be welcomed as a new member of the CAPA family."

    "It's the end of junior year and now my son is a senior. The school has helped him be more outgoing,not as shy. 12th grade will be his best year with all that CAPA has to offer. Great kids,great staff."

    "My son, who attended a private school for elementary and Masterman for junior high, just completed his freshman year at CAPA, and we couldn't be happier. Unlike Masterman, where teaching is uneven and the environment is rather factory-like, the teachers were consistently top-notch and the principal is deeply involved, as is his administration. My son's skills as a reader and writer easily improved 100%, and he was regarded as a strong writer at Masterman. The school is diverse, welcoming, and engaging, and small enough that everyone knows your name, not just the students--the parents!"

    "Gorgeous physical plant, tolerant, supportive environment for your budding artist.. Great parental involvement. Zero or near zero (serious) discipline incidents. Academics above-average for PHL public schools but lag behind the rigor of area private schools. All teachers and administrators we've interacted with have been engaged, helpful and courteous. If your kid is headed for the arts, this is THE one school in the city to go to. If more traditionally academic focused, look elsewhere. One star off for good but not great academics."
