Need feedback on SOTA (school of the arts in San Francisco)

I have an 8th grader who is interested in applying to SOTA. We would love to hear any feedback about the school. We have no knowledge about the school and will be visiting for the first time this October. My child is very invested in the performing arts.

Thanks so much

My nephew went to SOTA many years ago and after SOTA he went to Curtis Music institute and New England Conservatory of music. He had a great experience at SOTA. The principal of SOTA while he was there is now at OSA(Oakland School of the Arts).

As of a year or two ago, SOTA is restricted to San Francisco residents only.  The information is posted on the SFUSD website.
