As a parent, I have one child at this school and it is a truly amazing place with amazing teachers. The quality of education and support from the staff for the students is second to none. :)

The staff are extremely supportive and approachable, and the kids are allowed to be themselves and follow their passions. A great experience for my daughter, and as parents we have loved her involvement.

If your child has a love of the arts and you live in Minnesota, you owe it to your kids to allow them this opportunity to thrive in this environment. My daughter lives on campus (110 miles away) and I am better informed and included by the staff than here in my home city public school.

A great school for any child that finds him or herself being drawn to an artistic outlet. Whether it's acting, writing, dancing, singing or playing instruments, photography, or making movies with videocameras, it's the school to go to for a budding/fledgling artist. In-depth and hands-on approaches to all calsses and art areas with great, qualified teachers.


Posted August 22, 2003

The programming that has been developed for the students is that of college a level. The challenges faced by students in this school create learning expiriences they will carry with them for a lifetime. Students will learn to feel progress, and attain goals.

Amazing place for talented kids to 'bloom.' I reccomend it to any one with a passion for the arts and a desire to be surrounded by like-minded students and supported by amazing teachers. Best enviroment i have found in my life.
