High school is a fundamental part of growing up. Figuring out the role we play in this busy world we live in is a foreboding task and I can't think of a better place to do just that. FALA's accepting environment paired with faculty and staff that share a genuine concern for the students' well being while fostering an environment rich with academic as well as artistic studies produces well rounded, highly educated citizens who are aware of the world around them with the ability to make educated decisions while expressing themselves eloquently. There have been many days where I wish that I could "ungraduate" and go back to this loving, accepting, beautiful environment.

The thing I love most about this school is that my children LOVE going to school. They are encouraged to try new things and as a result are finding new passions. What more could a parent ask for? For those of you thinking this is an "artsy" school, be assured their academic core classes are challenging, engaging and demand creative thinking. I value the sense of community this school demonstrates to each of us every day. I am proud to be a FALA mom.

FALA has it all. Simply said. We moved to Flagstaff just so our daughter could attend FALA. She is very creative and gifted in the fine arts field. We knew that FALA would allow her to expand her talents and creativity, while at the same time challenge her academically. The administration, the teachers, student body, community service projects and parent volunteer corps all make FALA the perfect package. It is a community that helps and betters the community around it.

FALA is the best school in Arizona. Students excell in the arts, as well as their core subjects. Everyone of my friends is on honor roll, and is talented in some way or another.

A great school to express your individuality, and be in a worry-free environment.

A school for the self starter, for the motivated. A school where you can grow your own way, with encouragement and support. Cliques are discouraged, competition is between you and yourself, students help one another in all ways, everyone goes to dances and proms, there is no artificial division by age or grade. The arts flourish, individuality is encouraged. This is not a school for sheep, it is for serious students with vision. My son is in his 3rd year, he jams with his teachers, dances and drums with his teachers, is pushed to be great!

Academic programs are better than some public schools, but mostly because classes are smaller. Student/teacher interaction is encouraged to a point. Teaching methods are primarily audio-sequential and not particularly innovative, alternative or progressive. Same old stuff. The school is supposed to specialize in music, dance, theatre and art. The art room is small and crowded, supplies limited. The number of choices of art classes is small. There is only one music teacher to teach the different classes. The theatre classes are also very limited. Dance is really the focus. So if your student is into dance it might be a good place. The principal is more concerned with discipline than the quality of experience for the individual student. He obviously likes some, dislikes others.

My kids attend Blue Ridge Mid School. It's a very good school. The teachers are mostly terrific however the class size is growing. It's not uncommon to have 30 in a classroom.
