Almost all of this school's teacher's quit in one year and the principal was essentially forced to resign due to one teacher's misconduct in the classroom (this teacher is married to the principal) and other dysfunction. Please research the school in the local paper and ask around in the community. There are deep problems at the core.

I am now graduating from Expressions. I loved going to the school and performing. The teachers are fun and (usually) easy going lol. Its a very relaxed school and a smart, fun school where I think I've made life long friends. The school is challenging yet the teachers will help you catch up of you are behind. I LOVED going there. And now I am graduating to P.K Yonge for Middle School.

As a parent of a graduate and a current student it is with the utmost confidence and sincerity that I rate this school an excellent. The staff care for the children and the children care for each other. There is a strong sense of community and respect of person. The arts are incorporated into the curriculum seamlessly~ and the children benefit from the small class size, individual attention and well rounded experience ELAA has to offer.

The people that have children that stay in this school are all very loyal and much like a school click - gossipy, etc. and they rated it well. I put my daughter here and pulled her out the school was probably the worst experience that she or I have ever had in her life so far and she is 15 now. I knew only three other people who had their children here and out of them one pulled their children out as well! We had a lot of questions about strangeness and inappropriate behavior...

The teachers were so kind and helpful. From the orientation to the shows, we are able to be so involved. I took the adivce of another parent and enrolled my daughter into Huntington and I found the combination of the arts at school and the advance cirriculum at Huntington have really made her into a well rounded child. We couldn't be happier.

Great school! My daughter loves it. She loves the drama, dance, chorus, music and art programs. She's doing well academically. She loves her teacher. All of the teachers at Expressions seem exceptionally caring and the parents are very involved.

Expressions Academy Arts is a wonderful school for children. The school provide top notch academic skills, nuturing inviroment, a hands on way of teaching. If your child is interested in music and dance I would recommend this school. The teachers are very well trained. They care for your child as an individual as well as a student. They promote individuality. The arts and drama provided by the school is more than what is offered in a public school setting. This is a wonderful school.

Expressions is a wonderful school if you are looking for a high quality academic program enhanced by the arts (mostly performing arts). Because of the fast-paced academics, busy schedule, and stimulating atomosphere, Expressions is not a good school for children with certain learning difficulties or with ADD type problems. The school is small, and resources for ESE students is limited. The facility itself is also very small and a little funky/messy, but the quality of the curriculum and staff makes up for the lack of space and the untidyness. Worth a look!
