This is a wonderful school, but it is not for everyone. For those who want to go on in the arts, there are opportunities that no other local schools have-- 2 or 3 (or more) hours per day in your artistic "major". Also, there is a lot of cross-pollination between peers from different arts departments. While you can't take classes in the other artistic disciplines, students often end up learning from each other, and they are exposed to the art made in all the other majors.

Ruth Asawa SOTA is spectacular! My teen loves going to school and he is involved in a multitude of SOTA activities. He is busy, having very little downtime yet, he is excelling in everything he touches because he is having so much fun. This is a school that gets it right--it balances a strong academic program (No complaints) with the arts AND teen spirit! The kids are happy here yet they are working hard. It also has a STRONG community.

I was both happy and disappointed with this school. Most teachers are good but some are awful. Some kids are mean.

Best thing we ever did for our very artistic but only partially academic son. He ended up with amazing grades because he was enjoying his time on campus.
