    "I liked how SOTA was able to integrate arts and academics for students. The school also funded many opportunities for young artists to study their craft and learn from world renowned artists. I was able to make long term friendships I still have even after graduating. Most of the teachers were kind but there were some that were mean. There was consistent problems with drug and alcohol use at the school with many of the students. There were even some departments that enabled people to do drugs. The school had some difficulties with recruiting people who weren't either rich or white. This was because most of the training necessary to gain entry into the school was limited to people who had money for private lessons and classes. I was able to learn many things at SOTA largely due to my lack of experience in my discipline. I wasn't that wealthy compared to most people at the school and did not have as much experience upon entering the school."

    "I had a changing experience at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts (SOTA). I used to be very closed off and shy and was accustomed to a small school surrounding. However, when I came to SOTA, I was immediately welcomed and met so many people who, later, became some of my closest friends. Not only did the school give me a social life, it also brought out my passion for art, and I became more than happy to share my works I created in class. I became for outgoing and less intimidated by big surroundings, and I became more open and willing to learn new things."

    "At Sota I have gotten the opportunity to explore my art form and to able to work with an passionate and hardworking ensemble. I came in with a goal to be able to bring the stories, and not only did was I able work in that field and achieve that goal but I got to expand on the different aspects of performance."

    "I am a Theatre senior and the past four ears at this school has been great. Everyone in the school is so caring and respectful. The teachers build great relationships with the students. I wish that they had sports teams here though. I am a very active person. I love swimming, dancing, playing volleyball, and doing karate."

    "Overall SOTA has been a great experience! The teachers are truly engaged with their students and care about them. SOTA is an environment where all identities are accepted and where student's artistic talents flourish."
