    It's seriously amazing and life changing because everyone there is so dedicated of their work and friends. Even the teachers there are great they care for us and they make us laugh when we have our worst days they are the kind of teachers who don't give up on our education .

    The communication between the administration and parents is awful. The administration never plans ahead. They inform parents of activities at the last minute. They tell you one thing at the beginning of the school year and end up doing something entirely different in the middle of the year. Parents have addressed this situation w/ the principal and she seems to be in total denial. We will keep pressing for the administration to create an academic calendar and stick to the actual dates and planned events.

    I love City College of the Arts because the principal Dr. Drysdale is very welcoming. She works closely with the students to enable them to succeed in all areas. The teachers are also devoted.

    The school is devoted to the excellence of education. They care about their children as individuals. I am happy that my son is attending a school that is focused in the preparation of higher learning for all their children.
