    Excellent I loved working with both the children and the staff. It was such a pleasure to be apart of such and amazing community of educators.

    Pros

    If you love the arts, this art school is a wondrous place to be. The curriculum features art, music, dance, video, photography, and theatre taught by talented teachers and professional artists. The students are gifted and it is a joy to see their talents bloom. There is an artistic director who guides the program. There is a collaborative atmosphere. The curriculum also includes academic subjects and a science fair.

    Cons

    New Haven is a big city with a very large school system, and it can take some time and navigational skills to get to school meetings held at the various locations

    Advice to Management

    Treasure your Arts Magnet School. Always keep it as vibrant as it is. There are not many districts in Connecticut that are specifically designed for creatives.
