    "Laguardia has an excellent quality of education, but many students feel overwhelmed due to the large amounts of homework from academic classes combined with arts classes. Additionally, requirements to attend Laguardia are too focused on grades rather than artistic talent, despite the fact that it's a school designed for people with artistic talent."

    "Knowing Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School was such a "prestigious" school, I had high hopes that it would lay a foundation for me as a student and an artist. However, what I expected was the complete opposite. Composition, value, contrast, and other techniques aren't things that everyone comes into LaGuardia knowing. I struggled in my junior year, and having a teacher that restricts my freedom as an artist traumatized me. I was so lost and was imprisoned in my teachers way of art and style. As artists, we shouldn't be bound to rules or rights and wrongs because art is endless imagination. We shouldn't be told that art isn't "good enough" and as a teacher she failed to understand the true meaning of art. Overall, I trusted LaGuardia to be a guide and base for me to build myself up as a student and as an artist, but now I see it fails to aid me in both."

    "It was a good school. I learned how to perfect my talent and develop it to the point where I was able to perform on a professional level. The academic teachers, however, were not as well knowledgeable as the arts teachers."

    "Coming to the "Fame" school can feel daunting at first but you learn that this school will become your second home. It doesn't matter what age, major, gender, or background you are; you will be welcomed with open arms. The family that you great here will carry on after you graduate. Only a select few have this chance in the back of their pocket. Your time at LaGuardia will be like no other."

    "The school overall is good. The academics are fine if you get a good teacher, but the chances are slim, at least in my experience. The studios are great if you can keep the passion that you came in with for them, but mine was lost in the first year, no doubt to my teachers."
