    "Some parents reviews seem upset. It's true that the administration doesn't care at all about acting, but that's just the way it is. Replacing the acting kids chance to shine with yet another fluffy musical is a slap in the face to students who want to act, but they'll just have to deal with it. Honestly, we're all here really to avoid the other public schools anyway, the arts thing is just a blind. The administration's treatment of the acting program this year has totally turned my son off acting which I personally think is great. The last thing I want is for him to try an acting career (I don't want him to throw his life away as a waiter). Anything that SAA does to disillusion and discourage him from acting is fine by me. As for the rumor they're going to make nonmusical theater kids leave the school, I asked a mom in the know and she said it's not for sure yet."

    "If there are students who want to act why don't they get a faculty advisor and start an acting or theatre club? They could do a bunch of challenging short bare-bones plays, something besides the usual SAA pablum. The music students do concerts all the time, shouldn't the theatre students be doing plays all the time? You know, actually acting? I don't mean the Thespian Society, which has its own mission as an honor/leadership society (and about as much to do with real acting as the FBLA)."

    "Word is going around that apparently the Theater major is being replaced by a Musical Theater major starting 2015. Vocal majors who wish to can transfer to this program. Current Theater majors will have to pass a vocal audition in Spring 2015, or they will need to return to their home high schools."

    "Good school, but unlike most fine arts high schools, it does not have separate Musical Theater and Theater majors. (You can see complaints about this below.) They really should have two different programs, because they're two different skill sets, two different learning curves, and two different performance vehicles. Now that the school has shifted over to be completely Musical Theater, a separate Theater track needs to be created if Savannah Arts is seriously trying to present itself as a comprehensive fine arts high school."

    "I find it interesting that this website allows information that is inaccurate and untrue - see the posting from June 12, 2013. For instance, one of the people reviewing the school states that students are thrown out of the school if they do not maintain their grades. Since the recent principal arrived, this practice has not occurred. In fact, students have not been thrown out of the school for failing courses for the past 8 years. A open records request was made by a citizen in Chatham County and this was found to be correct. There have been several students who have left the school on their own as a result of failing courses. Teachers have never been fired for doing their jobs. The reviewer is correct in stating the building is in bad shape. Mold, broken windows due to their age, etc. This is something the current administration is working on. However, SCCPSS Building Services has to address those issues. These concerns do not cause bad immune systems. Apparently, the reviewer didn't pay attention in biology!"
