Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. School of the Arts, DSOA is a prestigious public arts magnet high school located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The school draws talented students from across Palm Beach County into one of its five art departments are communications, dance, music, theater, and visual art. Students are said to major in their art area, taking at least two art area classes per year. In addition, students complete the normal public school curriculum of math, science, English, history and social science, foreign language, health, and gym.
The school was previously named the Palm Beach County School of the Arts from its opening in August of 1990 until the opening of the new campus for the 1997 to 98 school year. The original campus was the old North Shore High School campus in Mangonia Park, a neighborhood north of West Palm Beach. That campus is now the home of the Bak Middle School of the Arts, which recently received a generous donation from the Bak family and underwent major renovations. The Dreyfoos School of the Arts campus is located on Sapodilla Avenue and is located in downtown West Palm Beach, just across the street from city place.
Students audition for placement in the school throughout February and March. The audition process is coordinated by each of the individual departments, after which the school administration makes an overall assement of a prospective student's academic and behavioral record. Auditions rigorously test the student's artistic aptitude on a college level. Dreyfoos accepts a limited number of students in each art area.
Students in their first year at DSOA are given a fairly rounded course selection in their art area. Visual Arts majors, for example, take a year long drawing class as well as a semester of sculpture, and a semester of 2-D design. A few students are able to take photography. Visual majors may concentrate on sculpture, painting, photography or printmaking. Dance majors train in a style such as ballet or modern. The one exception is music, in which a student is given intensive training in their instrument of expertise, for the duration of their high school career. Music departments include band, keyboards, orchestra, and vocal. 
The mission of Dreyfoos School of the Arts is to provide their students with opportunities to obtain the skills needed to become productive, responsible citizens, capable of making positive contributions to a changing society.
