Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
If any bullying is seen, it is quickly dealt with. I've never seen bullying happen at this school

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
Though there isn't a specific program, students can tell the counselor and they will work with the directors of the specialty to work for the needs of the student


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
There are so many leaders at this school I'm amazed that it's not just a school only for leaders. Theyre amazing and understand cases no matter what the student.

Develops character: Agree


- a
Students don't have locks on their lockers here because we all respect one another to not steal things that we leave in there. Compassion is throughout the school and we are incredibly close.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
There is not a single adult in this school that doesn't want to teach. There are alumni that came back to teach and they fully understand how the kids go throand gj class everyday. The other teachers are just as passionate and excited about teaching the students as we are and it's quite amazing

It's an amazing school. As a first year student, I wasn't really expecting as much as many other students were since I'm not from Birmingham. But I was overwhelmed with the opportunities, diversity, and overall happy aura of the school. It has its down perks and downfalls like any other school but it's one of the best I've gone to.

One of the best public schools in the state of Alabama, and for a certain kind of student, it is ideal. The school is not under the oversight of a district, which gives ASFA's educators freedom to do what is best for their students. Class sizes are small, specialty programs are unparalleled by any other school in the state (with the exception of the math & science specialty vs the Alabama School of Math and Science in Mobile). Its carefully selected student population through the audition process make for a student body like no other. It is not a traditional school though, so families looking to checkmark off sports, dozens of AP classes, and a variety of extracurriculars will be disappointed. But when it's a match for a student, it's a great match, in a way that cannot be reflected on any school rankings chart or measured in the way other schools are evaluated. If you have a quirky, passionate student with a deep energy towards one of the school's offered specialties, it's worth paying a visit at least.

My family moved here to Bham for employment- WE FEEL So BLESSED to have our daughter go to such an amazing school. Just like the other reviews when you walk into the school you feel like you step into the U.N. which is AWESOME. Also the The level of Excellence and Expectation of the student is so high it has been so amazing to see how much my daughter has florished and has become so discipline. I didnt know she had in her. It great to see my child do high school and be so Happy about school.

This year is my first year at the Alabama School of Fine Arts and I absolutely love it. Everyone is very diverse and nice, for the most part. If someone is mean to you at ASFA, they're usually joking around. The only thing I think is wrong with the school is how narrow the hallways are and the huge poles in the smack middle of the hallways. I think that's a bit unnecessary.

I love the Alabama School of Fine Arts because it makes it possible for kids to explore their own possibilities and encourages personal growth. The school helps kids to develope their own opinions and creative genius.
