At the auditions I was so nervous! I was shaking, there were butterfly's in my stomach and I was sweating! When I got to the audition room all of my nerves went away! They made us all feel so welcome and they didn't pressure us or anything. Right now it is June 3,2015 I start going there on august sixth! I am so excited! Over all I think davidson fine arts is the best school in America! PS- the principle is very nice and supportive! If you are having any doubts about davidson don't it is a wonderful place!

I attended DFA for only one year but I love and cherish every moment I was there. It was like a big family and the atmosphere of respect and love for the arts is so positive and beneficial for learning. The student population embraces students who are different and creative and hone on those skills to make them even better. The teachers are wonderful and everything is wonderful and this school is defiantly 5 out of 5! I love DFA!!!!

I'm currently a student at this school and i love it, its definately not rated 10 out of 10 for nothing. It's not just the teachers who make up this wonderful school its the students, we work harder than they do (at times). Overall I love my school and I'm glad to be apart of it!!!!!!!!! Go DFA!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter has been at Davidson for two years and in the first year , she struggled some. She is now starting her eight grade year and she is achieving much more than I thought she ever would. The opportunity is there for her if she is willing to work hard. The fine arts is excellent, but some of the academic instructors shouldn't have a place to teach our children at Davidson Fine Arts.

Great liberal arts high school. Every child I know that has graduated from this school has had no trouble getting into top state and private high education institutions.

As the parent of a Davidson graduate who has gone on to film school, I can't say enough about the wonderful family atmosphere at Davidson. I do take exception with some of the other reviewers who complained that there was not enough 'academic help' available to students. My son struggled in the 6th grade adjusting to the rigorous demands and all of his teachers as well as the principal were there to help us get through that difficult period. He was able to excell academically and creatively in a school that helped him find his passion. On the weekends, our home looked like the United Nations - kids from every race, religion and economic background having fun and learning about each other. Relationships like the ones my son formed will help our community come together when these boys are in leadership positions.

As a parent of 2 DFA graduates, I rate this school 5 stars! Davidson continually wins the top school in the state of Georgia. High academic and fine arts standards blend to make outstanding, college-ready graduates. Since the standards are high, it is not the best school for all students. However, for college-bound students, it is an excellent choice.

As a graduate and now a current teacher I can attest to the rigor of the curriculum, support of the faculty and staff, and overall wonderful nature of this school. Yes, the work is demanding and the staff has extremely high expectations. However, the children's education is the most important factor in everything. I feel as if this is my home, my family. Every time I compare a Davidson performance to those of professional companies, I realize that there is more talent concentrated in this school than in many of our state's professional companies. I am grateful for every minute that I get to spend there as an instructor and as an alumnus.

This is the greatest school ever! I am in my first year here and have loved every minute. Davidson deserves all its recognition as one of the best schools in Georgia!
