I am a graduate of Fort Dale/South Butler Academy and a parent of two current students. I attended the public school system in Greenville before transfering to Fort Dale at the beginning of my Freshman year, I can attest to the higher quality of education at Fort Dale over any alternative in or near Greenville. After graduating Fort Dale I attended Auburn University and the majority of my first two years there was basically a review of what I learned in high school. My children are recieving an excellent education at Fort Dale now. The teachers and staff are top notch and truely care about each student in their care. Fort Dale has been and still is a close knit family. Parent involvment is high. I'd guess parent involvment is as high at Fort Dale as it is in any AISA school. The school is extremely safe and very well administered. In my opinion, it is worth every penny and hour spent at the school.

This is our second year at FDA, and our daughter loves it! The faculty and staff really care about my child, and the quality of education is top notch. I for one am proud that my family is part of the Fort Dale Nation

I am a parent of a FDA graudate. She is now a student at Auburn University and has done extremely well at a large university and I attribute that to the education she received at FDA. She will be a three year senior at AU next year.Thanks Mr. Brantley and the teaching staff for the quality education that FDA provides to the students.

I have had first hand experience, not only at FDA, but other AISA schools & public school as well. Compared to other AISA Schools, I think FDA does a great job preparing students for college & producing collge graduates. FDA is very well organized & efficient. FDA does have a history of having a 'grandiose, snobby atmosphere,' but a lot of the 'want to be' people have run their course. The bottom line is education, & I think FDA is ranked up there with Morgan & Monroe.

Best school the town but not equal to a college prep school. Environment is safe and close, but students complain of 'old money' favoritism amoung the teachers and staff. Student numbers have grown due to other cross town private school closing. Recommend looking at other schools either to the north or south of Greenville if you want better learning skills and college prep for your childern.
