    "It is part of the Pittsburgh Public school district which is cool. All the teacher are there to help you out and they are nice. You get to do what you love everyday and it is part of Pittsburgh cultural district. Plus it is downtown."

    "CAPA is an amazing middle and high school that offers tons of opportunities. Not only do you get the chance to explore your art form, but you have the chance to perform and/or participate in events, meet professionals in your field of interest, and overall have numerous chances to exhibit your art. CAPA is a very free spirited school. It is very accepting and full of different students from all parts of Pittsburgh, creating a unique educational experience."

    "I like how we get to have three hours of our major at the end of the day. I just wish we were more progressive with racial issues in the school between faculty and students."

    "I really like that the school is the diversity of the different majors. In each specific major the students explore different styles of ideas and actions. In Instrumental, students play all types of music from different eras in time. In dance, dancers experience different movements and dance to different genres of music. Some things I would like to see change are sports in the high school. In the transition from middle school to high school alot of students, mainly males, leave because there are no longer different sports teams offered. Sports teams are important to the majority of us because they're a outlet. CAPA is a tough school, for high school starting at 7:40 and not leaving till 3:46 then going home to homework and the responsibilities at home. Sports are an outlet for that, to have some time to work as a team while playing a more contact sport, such as basketball or flag football, are actually really helpful for a student."

    "This school does amazing things with kids. There is a lot of opportunity here for growth for students interested in the arts in an area where the arts are not as popular. They have a bunch of diverse opportunities and the student population is very diverse. All of the students do amazing work and are incredibly talented."
