    "I love my school experience at Arts at the Capitol Theater! Or, ACT, as we students use an an acronym for the school. It's everything I could have hoped for and more. I'm accepted for my Gender and sexuality expression, and I get to learn about the arts! They offer 5 majors there, and my major is acting. The acting department is marvelous, and I wouldn't change a single thing about it! I also very much enjoy the singing classes I've taken there, as they have given me a foundation to how to sing properly. That doesn't make the school perfect though. The academics lack, because of the commitment that students put into their work. It sets teachers and classrooms back when the majority of the students don't do their homework. Also, the administration is disorganized. Although this has improved over my 3 and half years at ACT, it's disorganized and messy at times. Students rarely know when events are, or if there are any rule changes."

    "When I was in 8th grade, I remember I was the only one interested in applying to go to this high school. This had made me happy, because I was bullied during middle school and this was an opportunity to start somewhere new. At some times, it was pretty great. I got to actually realize my passion to writing poetry and I spent most of my time editing and perfecting my pieces, especially in the times we were preparing for coffee houses, where we performed our writing pieces live. Honestly, though, I ended up having a new Math teacher every year, so I ended up failing in most of my math classes after my freshman year. My senior year I witnessed one of my favorite English teachers crying because the administration decided to fire her with the excuse that her contract is ending and they don't want to renew it. It was disgusting."

    "I love performing arts and have done them since I was 5. I wanted to do what I loved before I went to college to continue my education in a completely different field. The parts given to me sometimes had to do with the fact that I was black, and when I was cast in parts that were originally for white women I was expected to give the same black woman persona. The people in the school (meaning the students) were just as ignorant as some of the staff were. To put it quite simple, if you your issues had nothing to do with theirs, they didn't matter. However, there were a few people in the school, staff included, who genuinely understood many different types of students and could empathize with them...they should know who they are. Overall I did enjoy this school, I accomplished a lot, experienced a lot, and learned a lot."

    "Everyone is a special snowflake and tries to turn being transgender and gender-fluid into a trend completely invalidating the legitimate transgender people who attend the school."
