What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Pratt is an oasis in the city for artistic people looking to develop and expand their skills. Prestigious and rigorous, this school is not for everybody, but it is a guaranteed that if you can get through four years here, you will be able to find your place in the industry.
Landry from Scottsdale, AZ
Pratt is a very intense and structured school with a well molded foundation. The school is very well established and specific in their schooling, and in this the school itself and all its staff presses their students to reach a certain level. The campus is gorgeous and though students are expected to keep a very focused state of mind, they allow for a realistic and healthy college experience overall.
