Student, Professional Performing Arts High School, Class of 2016,
A type of person who should attend The Professional Performing Arts School, is a tough skinned, ambitious and open minded person. Show business is a tough one and no is the most common word you'll hear, but you need to take that and learn from it. You will have a lot on your plate. Electives, AP classes, regular classes, 2-4 hours of your performing arts classes and some after school activities. You need to know what you are doing to go to this school. You have to balance out your life and stay organized to go places in this school. And if you try hard enough, you'll get far with all the great opportunities the school has to offer. And lastly, and most important, being open minded. The diversity in the school is like no other. You have people from every part of New York City, all coming to th epicenter of the melting pot of New York, Midtown Manhattan. There will always be a group of people you don't like, a group you love and a group you never got to meet. You need to accept all these people and work together with them. And everyday you learn a little more about every type of person there is out. Whether that be rich people, poor people, homophobic people, gay people, conservatives, liberals, dancers of singers, everyone is just as much as student at PPAS as the next person. So you either need to come in with an open mind or learn to have one. That is the type of student who should attend PPAS.
