comments keep getting removed from inside schools...god forbid the truth gets out.... Discussion on IS - Profiles 195 comments M.S. 408 Professional Performing Arts anon25 anon25 gildinglillies 14 days ago Removed "the possibly for oporutnities made available to the academically ambitious." Wow. No wonder parents are pulling their kids from the school. You are clearly not seeking academic rigor. anon25 anon25 14 days ago Removed why was this comment removed? Its 100% true...The checks bounced twice and now Principal Ryan is writing the check directly to the affected parents because a lawsuit has been filed with a court date naming all involved. Lots of people put out when the new PTA VIOLATED Chancellor Regs and shut down PTA accounts opening New Ones. WHY would that be necessary?

I am a middle school parent at this school. My child loves this school and has been doing well both academically and socially. The after school program offers a wide range of activities and opportunities. I highly recommend this school!

yaaaayyy.., the new PA President is awesome. The horrible regime, well at least the head of it, is now ousted and we can all continue to raise money and ensure that it goes to the right causes!!! Democracy Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it was tough not too notice the children crying after the audition. I was told that they are very rude and super discouraging to the kids. Paint chiping off walls. The basement bathroom was gross. The entrance staff was friendly. But once your child was upstairs it was said to be uncomfortable and discouraging. Words like "just get out of here" were used to kids trying for audition. Talented Unlimited is way less rude and better quality everything. And no i am not upset on whether my child was picked for this school. I would not even consider it. You do not tarnish the dreams of kids who believe they have talent. The school is there to teach talented kids to get better and learn more about their talent. Not act like Simon from american idol. Its high school and your not La Guardia im sorry. If u get in please prepare yourself for the abuse. this has become a horrifying contest and not a fun experience . And not a good experience for many. I understand they want the best. But this school is not a managing company and they arent auditioning for tv. Treat those kids with respect so they can at least leave with dignity even if they werent picked.

Regardless of the family like environment, if your child is already acting in tv/film/print on a regular basis, the school is not equipped to coordinate combining the school work and career. Child has to make a short term choice of priorities and must be mature enough to tell the teachers what he/she needs while informing the parent of the day to day academic requirements. Also the annual math test scores were dismal and caused concern as a parent.

PPAS is a school that creates new artists. They support you in everything that you do and they make you grow not only as an artist but as a person. I highly recommend PPAS as an attending student

The best art school in the Big Apple




- a student
It' such a great school we have celebrities like Alicia Keys, Britney Spears who are alumni. A lot of the kids in our school are working professionals and the balance of academics and performing arts is amazing!

I LOVE my school (PPAS) because it is a comfortable environment to learn in. Everyone is extremely friendly. The teachers are really nice and they make learning easy, and the PA programs are everything and more than i expected it to be.
