My elder daughter graduated from FA and my younger daughter could 't wait to go there. FA has one of the best music programs in the country. The teachers are nice and caring. There are lots of electives and activities. If your child is attending FA, don't forget enroll him or her with Mr. D's band or orchestra!
This place has an excellent teaching and music programs. Also, this place has many electives. Keep the good work going, FA!
I don't know how anyone could be unhappy at First Avenue. I will be graduating in two days and have attended that school for all three years and I have not had a single day where I felt ignored or unhappy. The students are friendly and sociable, the teachers are awesome and ALWAYS willing to help if you don't understand something. Our marching band is one of the best and defeats even high schools i competition. Overall, it's a great school and I would definitely recommend it. Go FA!!
This school is not good. My child used to go there, and let me tell you, he was very unhappy. The teacher ignores the children, the principal is okay, and the parent involvement.....anyways this is a bad school!
this school is AWESOME!! we have so many electives compared to other schools! great field trips, great teachers, great students! the music program is THE best in our district, with a rock band and award wining marching band and orchestra. GO FA!!
This school is simply the best school around! The teachers are amazing.. the music program is awesome and lets not forget the academics which are great! Overall, I love this school and I am sad this is my last year here at FA. Go Spartans!

I love First Ave. I don't regret choosing to come here. If you ask any eighth grader, they're dying to stay because it's one special middle school. Awesome extra-curricular classes !
Excellent School, I am so happy to have my kids in First Ave. School. Keep it up.
This school is awesome! It offers so many extra curricular activities to students! The student leadership is outstanding compared to the other Arcadia schools. The music teacher is excellent and he's very clear. The school is the best!
this school is the best! we have high scores and tons of after school activities (yearbook, basketball, student council, band, rock band, drill and flag team, small team, colorguard, etc). The teachers are always willing to help too! everyone is great!
Good at academic, too much students over 180 on 7 grade. It was very difficulty to make a appointment with teacher.
This school is great. The teachers provide all the care for the students that the students require. The teachers are clever and funny, which keeps them from being dry and dull. However, there seems to be a lack of activities that students can participate in outside of school after it is done. That lack probably amounts for the great amount of traffic that occurs after school is out. What First Avenue needs would probably be some kind of an afterschool program that will supervise students and provide necessary resources for them.
