    "FBA is a very poor high school! Although some of the programs are very good - the social studies, English, and music programs are really good - the rest of the academics are sub par. The administration is exceedingly legalistic and rigid. And the school-year is interrupted by any number of disruptions, from athletic and music programs to various retreats and other spiritual emphasis nonsense. What makes the Biblical stuff especially ineffective is the poor way it is modeled by the administration. Kids report that they are routinely pumped for information about classmates or even teachers. I did want my kids exposed to Biblical teachings and application, but not like this or at the expense of school work. We have had it with FBA. The end of this school year won t come too soon."

    "My daughter is in pre k 3. She comes home full of excitement telling me all about every day. I hear it all, Bible verses, songs, activities, math, library, Jesus stories and of course all about her friends. I've met lots of parents from all the events and birthday parties. The only thing I dislike is transportation. The school busses are for sports and field trips only. My child's happiness and how she is learning and growing in our church makes it all worth it."

    "This school is simply not equipped (whether due to unwillingness or inability) to nurture and develop advanced learners. As other posters have accurately noted, it's the school's way and nothing else. But this school's rigidity and refusal even to attempt to accommodate children who need more of a challenge is unacceptable, particularly when parents are paying tuition. The school changed its curriculum recently; it is no longer advanced, and my child would actually have been behind public schools had we not worked over the summer to catch up. Concerning the environment, we do not believe in yelling at or otherwise morally demeaning our child, but this is the accepted culture of this school. Thankfully, we "escaped" FBA and are now seeing our child bloom. Our new school has helped foster the rehabilitation (both academically and with respect to his self-esteem) necessary after the damage caused by our stint at FBA. Oh-but they have a new gym."

    "This is my child's first year attending FBA and I am completely satisfied. The small classroom size and the faith base was our prority. Yes there is fundraising but it is not mandatory. I know because we didn't do it. Sometimes you can sometimes you cant. The tuition is very affordable and seeing the change in my young child is worth every penny. I am very satisfied that we decided FBA over public school."

    "This school needs to be totally revamped. I know that this is ultimately a business but putting the children at the bottom of this list is not OK. Fundraising is always the focus and if you don't sell, you will ultimately pay. I refuse to be bullied when I'm already paying you tuition."
