BSA is a tough school, but it's worth it. There's no other school where you could get this kind of specialized education, attention, help, and combined academic focus and art experience. As a production student, the training is absolutely brilliant and brings real life experience in as we build our own productions with what we have, a realistic experience. All the departments work together but remain close knit in most cases. It's one of the best (if not the best) environments I have ever been in and I know many other students share my opinion.

This school is more then just a school to some students like me it would be a second home . Even if I am currently not attending the Baltimore School for The Arts , I am going to try my hardest to get in because i think that is where i belong . Every school should be like the Baltimore School for The Arts I heard that going there is a life change thing , And I am ready for a change .
