My daughter is a senior at BTW and a better school in Dallas can't be found. I love how the academic and artistic faculty work together to ensure the success of all students. The kids really want to be at Booker T. and will do whatever it takes to be successful in all areas of the school. I have never seen a more committed group of teachers and students. They are really care about each other
Never saw such devoted students as those at Booker T. They make the school such a fun, diverse, creative place. Wonderful, skillful events involving music, theater, dance or visual arts are going on all the time. A recent performance of a student written multi-arts show called 'ALWAYS IMAGINE' played to standing room audiences during the opening of the Dallas Performing Arts Center, to the point where they added a show. Booker T. must be one of the best schools in the country!
The school is the greatest because the teachers here really take an interest in putting out quality students. The ammount of time which is spent in developing the students here is especially helpful to me. I have learned so much and have developed my art to such a degree which t I could not have achieved any where but here.I am now a senior and the amount of time spent also in getting me into a good college has really helped alot. Great school for those going into the arts.
Because my son loves it and calls it his 'second home', and because the faculty (arts and academic) is phenomenal.
Attending highschool at Booker T Washington Spva Magnet is something that only a student there, would be able to understand. Someone would be able to understand if they went to school there and had the passion that every student there has. Words cannot descibe why I love going to this school. But I will try my best. It is the best school in the world! Everyday you walk out of school and feel like you're apart of something, apart of what you love. Art. The arts district of Dallas is the best place to be located. And everyday in the hallways at school I hear music from musicians in the hallways practicing. I get an education that is so rigourus on an academic level, and feel like i've achieved so much in my life. Specially as an out of district student to be living this dream of mine that I have had my entire life as a dancer. I know from Booker T Washington I will go far in life because I get told it everyday by teachers after they tell us the only way to get where you want is to work until' you get there. I learn so much, I do what I love at school all day long. Dancing. I have so many friends because everyone just welcomes you in because at the end of the day we all are connected through our strive to be the one shining on center stage, the one to get the full ride scholarship, the art, the passion. Teachers are there for us no matter what because they want to help us reach our goal. There is security inside and outside of our school protecting us. I know when I go to school I will be safe, and cared about. Something most schools do not accomplish. Booker T Washington is a school that security stays with you until everyone is out of the building. Even though most students stay after until 9:30 pm performing, or rehearsing, or doing homework. Because once you start the school year, you never ever want to leave.
My daughter is the happiest that she has ever been in public or private school. She is excelling in her academics and considers It an honor to be a part of this school. BTWHSPVA allows young people to express themselves and not be the 'weird' kid (the results speak for themself) These kids are amazing,,
The kids there are HAPPY! It's the strangest thing! Even outside of school when I come across a student or ex-student they get a huge smile and say YES I AM FROM BOOKER T! It's amazing. They have 99% of students going on to college and fabulous academics not to mention the best performing and visual teaching anywhere.
As an alumni and a teacher, I've been plugged into the energy of Arts Magnet for 16 years and there is no better place for young artists to explore and create. I hear several students saying, as they approach graduation, that they wish they could stay. Some of us act on it.
The teachers, principal and support staff are the best at BTWHSPVA! The teachers are #1 in their respective subjects and always give 110% to the students. Over all it is an incredible High School that has given our daughter opportunities that she would not have had anywhere else!
You can walk down the halls hearing music pouring out of doors, seeing dancers flying around the studios, viewing art in the mini-galleries, and watching the thespians become someone else.
I had so much fun learning and spending time with other artistic people. We were so involved in the school. There was always something to do or something to see. My favorite was sitting in English class and hearing the Jazz ensemble practice.
The academics are great and the arts emphasis is awesome. It is one high school where all the kids want to be there and where being different is cherished.
I went there and had some of the best experiences. The faculty is amazing and they work darn hard to help to prepare all the students for art outside of the school.
The faculty really is committed to making sure the kids get a quality education - while also providing them the highest level of instruction for their individual specialties.
It's a great school. It is not only a great school for performing and visual arts but the academics are wonderful. My daughter is getting an excellent academic and art education.
I love Booker T Washington High school because of all of the college and professional opportunity they provide the students.
The diverse, creative environment encourages acceptance, innovation, and exploration.
It is a unifying experience where children learn to get along with each other and express thier individual personalities while focusing on basic curriculum and thier love for the arts.
I love Booker T. Washington because it gave my son an opportunity to use his talent and creativity like no other school could have. Booker T. is part of the reason that my son is a graduate student studying scenic design. Booker T. rocks!
While I was in the process of visiting high schools before while my son was in the eighth grade, I had the feeling that all the students at the school wanted to be there. Those four years were good for him in so many ways and went by so quickly. He is now a successful college student as a science major. That success is based on his education, growth, and experiences at Booker T.
