FJA has an excellent curriculum that is moving fast in the area of technology with NEW teachers that are constantly in training! I have never experienced the "racism" that the previous comments refer to. Also, the current student enrollment is 50/50 of Caucasians/Hispanics. All are NICE kids!

I went to FJA many many years ago. It was a great school at that time. It was a wonderful learning experience for me and I am still in close contact to my True Friends that I made there. FJA is not for everyone. But for some it is a great place to be.

This school is horrible! A lot of the students there are racist and sexist. The Principal said 'I didn't need to take action' (on the racism) 'because she said sorry' to me! There is not much of a cultural diversity at this school! only 2 African Americans (and they're only half African American) 3 Mexicans and the rest are white people!

FJA is a good school, but there are 2 facts to it that need to be considered. Number 1, the fact that the teachers don't discipline their students and the second is that there is rascist children that are allowed to speak freely about their beliefs without getting into trouble. Other than that, the school is good.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
