    "I have to say that this is a great school! I am very impressed with the TA teachers and the Principal. The Principal and her staff are very informative and transparent. I am also very pleased with the teachers and teacher's support that they provide for the students. One thing about the TA teachers, the parents nor the students will never have to hunt them down to ask questions because normally they answer your questions before you asked them since they are so informative with their emails, the students work websites and what they post on the school website. TA is a school with a friendly and close family like environment that focus on academics and preparing students for college. Also, they have a very good basketball and soccer program and other sports. If you are looking for a school with a very good academic program that prepares students for college, have a friendly and family like environment, have supportive teachers and a very good Principal, then TA is the school for you."

    "TAKOMA ACADEMY IS IN THE MIDST OF AN A HUGE RENAISSANCE ON EVERY LEVEL. THE SAT SCORES ARE HIGHER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE, 85% OF THE CLASS OF 2013 DID EARLY ADMISSIONS TO 200 COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES & 99% OF THAT CLASS WENT ON TO ATTEND A COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY. THE MEN'S SOCCER TEAM WON THE 2013 MARYLAND INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE, THE CHOIR WON 1ST PLACE IN THE PRESTIGIOUS I-SING CHORAL COMPETITION. THE SCHOOL'S STEM PROGRAM IS BEING ENHANCED EACH YEAR. THE SCHOOL HAS CARING AND DYNAMIC TEACHERS WHOSE PEDAGOGY IS PRODUCING OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC RESULTS. ENROLL YOUR CHILD AT TA AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT."

    "I am very pleased with what TA has to offer. The teachers and admin care a great deal about students and desire that each child does well. The arts department is well rounded and I am pleased that students can be a part of more than one aspect. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants their child prepared for college at the end of their high school career."

    "I like Takoma Academy. The offer plenty of opportunities for students to get involved and experience something new such as study abroad. The academics are good, my PSAT scores go up every year. They have many events and a really good athletics program. The teachers care and are always trying to make sure you grasp a concept. It really bugs me that some people are saying bad things about this school. It's not perfect, there are some downfalls to this school, but overall it can be amazing if you put the effort to making your experience a good one."

    "Most of the students are shallow, extremely rude, worldly and overprivileged. Some of the parents are even worse. Complete snobs. Yeah, no one is a perfect but it's not about perfection. It's about character. I was absolutely shocked at their behavior. The best thing about TA was the week of prayer. It brought me closer to God. Overall, I don't regret going there. That experience made me stronger."
