We ARE School of the Arts!

SOTA is the leader in public education for the Greater Rochester community. Chosen as one of America’s Best High Schools by Newsweek, The Daily Beast and US News & World Report, SOTA is a beacon of hope and source of pride for our city. For more than 30-years, it has been the top performing school in the Rochester City School District boasting the highest attendance and graduation rates and the lowest drop-out rate of any local urban secondary school. More than 90% of SOTA’s graduates further their education after graduation. SOTA’s mission is student success… academic, artistic and humanistic. Our arts-based educational philosophy melds the electricity of the creative arts and energy of academic learning together!
