Also known as P.P.A.S. - One of New York City's finest performing arts high schools. Located somewhere between Times Square and Hell's kitchen...unfortunately people don't know too much about it because it's so small but most of the kids seem to enjoy their art when compared to other "egotistical" Perf. arts schools.

Professional Performing Arts School

Certain kids like to think of the school as one big family...that's bull shit. Certainly not your "avg." american school. Most kids hang out with their majors. Majority is cool though. MAD FEMALES, hot nd not hot, then the males are either gay or straight.
-You've Got:
-Drama majors: (white+spanish+black...sorta diverse) known as the "CHILL" kids of the school not on edge or uptight. Usually funny, weird, intellectual(to some extent), stoners who get trashed, and deushy-ish but MAD ENTERTAINING. Drama is the more modest major and deserve more attn. but at least they get attention later on in life, (movies and plays DUH)

- Vocal (90%black 10%other)..if ur not blak nd soulful u will become so. Vocal stays with vocal, there either mad "soulful" and LOUD or like sorta ghetto in a weird way. They are LOUD and ALWAYS harmonizing or SINGING when you TRY TO FOCUS. Some are inconsiderate but most are very respectful. They all say “Yazz(yes) then snap or fierceeee”.

-Dance: split into 2 programs (90% female 8% gay dudes 2%straight dudes). ALVIN AILEY: biggest dance dept. Seems to be pretty diverse. Like vocal they are loud but differ b/c plenty are egotistical and they think their hard lmao (remember your dancers and not fighters). There’s a few sweet ones and plenty of bitches. Ailey girls are pretty much all BANGIN. I don't know how the straight Ailey guys don’t pop boners during class. Then you have School of American Ballet, aka S.A.B. (95% white female and 5% white least 1% other ethnicity) Mostly Tall and skinny females who walk with there feet out and drink SMART WATER and SMART WATER ONLY. There all freakishly smart…(your ideal angel students). They stick together and don't mix with other majors. Then ABT, there's like 3 kids in that major... What is that? haha

Musical Theatre: PREPPY!(most)Alot are really cool but then you get the really snobby ones. Like vocal THEY CONSTANTLY SING, but gay broadway songs. Often you will take a Rubin test and hear humming from the musical WICKED and then fail. They dress Abercrombie-ish and shop at urban outfitters and then tell people they shop at TRASH IN VAUDEVILLE. These kids often have a starbuck's at their desks and smoke tree with drama kids alot of the time. A lot of MT kids are pretty well off and host the few parties that happen at PPAS. *well black vocal nd ailey girls throw parties too but there really diff. from drama/mt/tech parties*

Tech: About 1% of technical theatre is there to keep on pursuing their major. 99% of the techies are there because they hated there major so they switched out. Pretty ppl who enter tech now dress kinda shitty because they are now surprised that it requires dirty work.

The green emporium is the bomb and kids from the 99’ even know CHARLIE!
The school can get dissapointing however when kids lose interest in their majors thanks to peer pressure and A$$hole teachers. *But hey most of us all some how make it in any field of choice* PPAS in the end stays united for about 5 minutes which aint bad.
