School of Technology and Arts is a Public Charter School that prides itself on its focus on community. SOTA I incorportes multi age classrooms, encouraging older students to mentor the younger students. This also encourages a sense of responibility not only to the school but to each other. SOTA I does a great job of encouraging diversity within the school, seeing that it is housed in a very diverse part of the city. Arts education, and the promotion of the children using art to express themselves is another reason that SOTA I is an amazing school.
