    "I agree with the previous parent - OCSA is an amazing school and the counselors are VERY GOOD, and really care about their students. This is our 3rd year and we have never waited more than 4 hours for an email from our counselor in response to our question. Again, OCSA is not an easy school, especially if your child is an Honors student or AP class student - those classes take a lot of time so plan your child's life according to that heavy homework schedule. Rehearsals, tech weeks, and shows can take up a lot of hours in a week so parents need to watch the burn-out factor big time. Don't overbook your student or don't let him/her overbook their social life - academics must come first or they will not do well at this school, in my opinion. OCSA students are there because they want to be there, and they know it - there is a long waiting list to get into the school, for a good reason. Hope this helps. Good luck."

    "My daughter is a senior and I can say that school counselors are THE BEST. They shine students and OCSA, especially Mrs. Shiroma. I can feel that she loves students and the school. Students and parents can reach her anytime, even nights and weekends. She responses immediately always, even weekend-nights. Mrs. Shiroma is really AMAZING counselor!!!"

    "Not a good place unless you can deal with disappointments. Arts teachers really play favorites - they don't care unless you adore them and give them compliments. Hard to stay motivated because a lot of the kids don't care anymore about improving their talents. They are just there to get through the academics. Some of the conservatories are a joke. Seriously, no one wants to hear suggestions - good place if you never complain. No one is ever supposed to say anything critical about ocsa. Seems like too many secrets are kept - everyone supposed to be happy all the time. We can't even complain about really bad teachers. Admin shut down or ignore any suggestions or comments from the students."

    "Not a good school for kids who know the difference between right and wrong. Administration not interested in what is best for the students - they care far more about protecting the image/brand of the school and keeping the money flowing in. Really not interested in helping children with learning issues. Very secretive administration -- what are they hiding? Why have there been so many kids unhappy with their conservatory classes and end up leaving? Does anyone know where to find the data on this? Seems like a significant number of freshmen leave every year."

    "My daughter is a junior and she has been at OCSA since 7th grade. I am very pleased with the school academically with the exception of math. The academic load is very challenging and students have to learn how to balance their academic and arts program. The only problem I have with the program is the lack of diversity in the staff and opportunities for ethnic students. They recently hosted a Motown show and there were about three black students in the show. I think they can do better."
