    "FBA middle school is very poorly run & the administration is out of touch with what builds great children. FBA is run for the general masses & doesn't develop/promote special talents. FBA administration puts up a good front, but follow through isn't there. FBA doesn't prepare its kids for the future compared to reasonably good private schools. The test scores prove it. FBA doesn't know how to develop boys, nor does FBA understand them. They are way off here. In general, they love & support most girls infinitely more. FBA hangs on to teachers they should fire when evidence is overwhelming against supporting those teachers. The FBA administration imposes its own wants & desires on a student body that should be relatively free to learn to work out social situations without interference UNLESS there is a threat of harm to someone. Their meddling cripples the true development of the kids and harms them for their entry into a world that awaits them. FBA administration should quit believing its own self assessment & start making efforts to earn the expensive tuition they charge. They won't, because they can always fill the seats with average students. Admission standards are low."

    "I love having my kids at FBA! Amazing and encouraging faculty, engaged administration and a wonderful Christian atmosphere. My kids have grown so much academically and socially - and it's due to FBA."

    "I have been a part of this school for the last 2 years on a volunteer basis. My wife and I will be sending our own children here in the near future. The school has lots of pride and the new Head of School is such a blessing. He is a leader and really has a heart for the well rounded student. He cares about academics and athletics, he realizes all of this makes for a strong school and a great experience for the institution."

    "We are in our second year at FBA with both a PreK student and a Lower School student. While last year was somewhat transitional as they searched for a new Head of School, this year has had a tremendous beginning. The Head of School is a great leader who takes time to be with the students and parents. The teachers challenge the kids academically, but also give them confidence. I'm so grateful that my kids are getting such a strong education in a place that they are loved and taught Christian values. Honestly, after being part of other schools, I had no idea what we were missing until we came here. We love the school - most importantly, our KIDS love the school. And I love that parents are involved in so many ways - from the parent association to booster club to reading to students in the library. It's a great place for both of my kids."

    "This school is in a transitional stage. Don't get caught in it. They haven't had any real leadership in the last 2 years. Many graduating 8th graders were not able to get into their chosen high schools because they weren't qualified. The lack of leadership reflects in lack of education. Many teachers don't know how to teach or don't care about teaching and in turn, when a parent complains, nothing gets done or changes. It seems like it is just a burden for the prinicipal to take time out to meet and in the end nothing gets done. There is no concern about any individual child. The program is turning into a one size fits all environment. This school does not compare to its competitors. The other schools are much stronger with more high school credit options. This school lacks strong parent involvement-a red flag!"
