Easily the best 'specialized' high school. Students undertake a heavy workload, balancing their artistic focus and a full academic course load.
Nothing tops being in science class while hearing gospel seep through the door and give you strength to last throughout the day.
I absolutely had the best high school experience at LaGuardia. My intense art classes were complemented by a rigorous academic program including many AP and honors classes. I still have many friends from there and we love to talk about how lucky we were to have gone to LaGuardia.
The teacher's care so much about teaching the students how to be prepared for College.
laguardia is a community where people are generally friendly and there is a positive atmosphere for everyone to work in their artistic interests and academic ones as well. it is heavily concentrated in the arts. these are only a few reasons why laguardia is so nice and cozy.
My daughter cindy has been dying to go to this school. I kept saying no because i didnt know what kind of kids she would meet there while im not around. i live in brooklyn and she goes to school in the city. I regret telling her no. she is now a senior at laguardia and is with the friendliest kids. Academically the school is fantastic, and Performing arts wise its phenominal
Laguardia is a middle ground and haven for artists to all be together in one place. With experienced and noted teachers that actully are concerned with the wellbeing and state of their students, Laguardia can only be described as bliss. The experience cannot be attained through any other high school and my Laguardian memories will stay with me for the rest of my life
LaG is a community with groups and incorporates everyone. No one is left out, in order to continue this we need funding.
The atmosphere cannot be compared to any other school. Hallways with artwork, music, dancing, and theatre. What more can one ask for?
Laguardia is a safe, educational, amazing place that has multicultural students that bring different talents and heritages together....Its a school that differs from any other because of the outstanding teachers, staff and students that seem to bring a light of joy everyday. Lag rocks
Safe school, good courses offered good and fun teachers talented students
It is a school like no other. A place where you are free to be the real you and are free from judgment. It is one big family at this school.
Its more than just a regular school, its more than a community, its a family. The talent surpasses any schoool in America. There is so much passion and love for the arts at Laguardia. The school is filled with every race, every culture, and every style. Its a school where hundreds of unique individuals come together to develop a powerful voice.
The worlds most gifted and talanted students attend that school and when they graduate they are focoused and sure of what they've been groomed to do. Love it
Its gotten me to amazing places and always pushed me, and now im studying at london college of fashion. Laguardia prepares you for the real world, weather it be in nyc or overseas.
LaGuardia High School is the best school in the city if you are interested in pursuing a career in art in the future. Those four years were one of the best experiences in my life, one that i will never forget. It's not your typical high school with your typical students, its an art center, a melting pot for creative ideas and great talent.
This school offers such a wide variety of chooses in the arts. It makes kids feel welcomed and gets them well prepared for thier journey of to college. It makes males dancers feel like they can acheieve anything. It's a great school to start off your goal to become a dancer.
People may not realize that high grades as well as artistic talent are needed to get into LaG. Students are highly intellectual and unparalleled in Artistic talents. LaGuardia is an amazing all-encompassing experience.
