High school is an exciting time. It is a wonderful opportunity for young people to start living beyond the moment and thinking about what they would like to accomplish in life. It is a time for talents to be explored and ideas cultivated.
The G-Star School of the Arts is the destination for Palm Beach County students to explore their creativity in film, animation, and the performing arts. The school offers specialized instruction and unique opportunities to learn from industry professionals.
“Our kids get their hands-on experience on set working with industry professionals—all film industry professionals—in all the different categories working in all different departments—some of them working with the stars themselves.” – Greg Hauptner, Founder and CEO of G-Star
G-Star gives students flexibility. The school does not ask students to commit to a path in their education at the school. Over the course of four years, a teenager may develop many ideas about what they want to do in the industry, and G-Star encourages students to choose the path that is right for them— whether they are freshmen or seniors.
Over more than a decade since it was established, G-Star has established itself as a leader among Palm Beach County charter schools. The school routinely outperforms more traditional high schools in metrics for reading, mathematics, and science. About half of all students have a 3.5 G.P.A. or better, and one in five has a 4.0 G.P.A. About 97 percent of students graduate and they have parlayed their academic success at G Star into scholarships at some of the country’s leading performing arts programs at schools like UCLA, NYU, Boston University, Syracuse University, Florida State University, and USC.
