    "Takoma Academy has been a great experience for my child. Since enrolling in the school my child's attitude has changed towards school. She has the drive to go beyond what she ever thought she was capable of prior. The teachers take their time to work with my child to make sure she succeeds."

    "My experience at TAKOMA Academy was an overall good experience. I had no problems or complications with Teachers or people at the school. The people there are nice and friendly. The best thing about the school is I believe the new schedule this year. School starts at 8:00 and ends at 4:30 Monday's through Thursday and there's no school on Friday. I'm loving the schedule and it's truly a blessing."

    "Takoma Academy is a Seventh-Day Adventist High School. In addition to the high academic standards and extracurricular activities available, we have an opportunity to develop a relationship with Jesus. The faculty and staff are caring and encouraging to the students and it is a family atmosphere."

    "Hi I am a student at Takoma Academy, I have been one since August of 2013. I have enjoyed my experience getting to know the students and faculty, and since it was a small school you get to know almost everyone.The academics are good there are around 10 AP courses. The teachers stay after school to help students with work and studying. The athletic teams level of intensity vary but there are many options to choose from. The food in the cafeteria is good but some consider it expensive. There are also many clubs to participate in and it is also pretty easy to create a new club if you so choose."

    "Takoma Academy is a great school and I recommend that people come to this school, not just for the spiritual aspect but for the learning aspect too. The teachers really care about your success, they don't just push you because they want you to pass their class but they want you to know they are always there for you. They also prepare you for college and have the parents and students very involved in all school activities. Even though it is a great school I would love to see some improvement in diversity because it is a minority school, they can make more of an effort for all races to come and everyone will feel welcomed."
