You may want to seek depth and breadth.

I looked briefly at the web site and the faculty members.

If I were considering doing 'sound' as a high school student, I may
not quite know "how" to read the 'code', but that's how this list
helps.

Read the site, and look for descriptions of the studios (unless you
expect to do everything with headphones). Are the facilities "robust"?

Is technological 'sound' described as MIDI?

Are there courses / elements of courses in perception?

Is there connection into the community that you wish to be a member
of? (This could be arts, sciences, communications, critical studies
...).

Does the institution provide "breadth' in the curriculum?

Does the department / faculty / school have "depth" of human resources?

Best

Kevin
