Take Their Word

See what real students have to say about their experience here at the Toledo School for the Arts. 

“TSA is where the weird kids go to school”. That’s what people said about us. To be honest, they were right. TSA was a weird place to go to school... It was weird to have teachers and administrators that truly care about each and every student. It was weird to be excited for school everyday. It was weird to see students cheering on other students. It was all weird and wonderful at the same time. As a theater and dance major dedication, perseverance, and respect were always expected of me. It was my job to get good grades so I could be in the fall semester musical, the spring semester play and the numerous dance concerts throughout the year. When it became time for college I felt prepared. I didn’t have to acquire a work ethic, I already had one, thanks to TSA. That work ethic carried me to NYC and eventually to TV/Film and Broadway. I have TSA to thank for laying the groundwork for my career. There’s no other place like it!

"TSA helped foster a love for creative problem solving and innovation in me from the time I started there in seventh grade. My school experience changed dramatically once I was taught by the amazing staff at TSA. I suddenly had teachers who encouraged us to think differently and weren’t afraid to push the envelope of how education should and could look."
