Our daughter graduates from SAA this year . Although there is a focus on the arts, we have seen the school's academic program perceptibly improve each year. Twelve students were selected as finalists in the Governor's Honors Program during the summer of 2003 --- far more than any other area high school, public or private. A student population cap of 600 ensures a manageable size in which the faculty & administration know the students. Prospective students must audition in their intended field of focus [drama, music, dance or visual arts] to gain a admission. Still a fairly new school, its growing reputation has allowed it to become more selective each year. It has attracted some really talented students --- most attend the school because they really want to be there. Discipline does not appear to be a problem. A wonderful new college counselor added this year. Great principal & teachers.
I'm not a parent; however, I am a student at Savannah Arts Academy and I love it! I attended Jenkins High School my freshman year and I hated it. At SAA I get to study and improve my passion- singing. The teachers are all caring, personal, and they put forth the extra effort that makes the big difference, as do the students. I'm a senior and I don't want to graduate, because I'm going to miss it!
Our Daughter just graduated from here. It is a wonderful school with fantastic teachers that care. Not the norm for the area ,fighting and what not, these kids want to learn....Below a C you are OUT!
