DeKalb School of the Arts is literally one of the best high schools in the state. Seriously. It was rated #2 in the State and #75 in the nation. The teachers are all extremely helpful and motivated and they want to see their pupils succeed. I have been at DSA for two years. The orchestra program is phenomenal and the progress I have made has been astounding to myself and my parents. The school provides so many opportunities and training. The academics are also very important. If you slack in your academics, you will be put on probation and if you don't pull it back up...you're kicked out. DSA is one place that you don't want to be kicked out of. It's a wonderful atmosphere and it's seriously the most rigorous but exciting experience I've ever had. I love every single person in the school and it's so tight-knit that I know just about every student on a first and last name basis. Here, if you can work hard, you can play even harder.
