I went to this school and completed 3-8th grade. First of all if you want your child to become a ballerina this is for you. If you want your daughter to excel academically and in the real world and go to college, this is not the school. They care more about dance than school work and the lack of knowledge on how to teach in middle school is horrible. When they go to a real college or high school they will be so behind. Not to mention they do not care what so ever for your concerns or opinions, unless you suck up and give generous donations of course. Yes you will become a good dancer there is no denying that but they also will lack confidence, social skills and be poorly taught academically. If I could do it over I would.

Good concept, but the leadership is poor. Bullying is a problem. The best teacher there is a third grade teacher. Child came home with homework that wasn't explained in class. School seems to focus on prepping students on FCAT.

I began teaching ballet at NFB this past summer and was delighted to see such well trained and disciplined students coming from this school. The director and assistant director are a pleasure to work with and they have done an excellent job at developing an artistic program that will prepare these children for a career in the dance world. I highly recommend this school!

Our experience with NFB Academie has been wonderful. My daughter completed 4th grade with the most amazing teacher I have ever met. It was a wonderful year where she enjoyed both academics and dance. Every morning she was eager to get to school because she loved her school. My daughter wants to be a professional dancer and what a great environment this has provided. The school's founder has done an outstanding job in building this high academic learning environment coupled with excellent dance training. We look forward to another wonderful year as NFB Academie. We are very thankful for the opportunity to attend such a wonderful school.

Great concept under poor leadership. The directors of the NWFBA do not act or make decisions that take the best interests of the children into consideration. The facade presents a nice image. But behind the facade is a very disappointing experience. Parents, do your homework before deciding on allowing your child to attend this school. Parent participation is minimal because it is not encouraged. We are not allowing our child to return after her first year is complete.

The school is great for building confidence and poise. The ballet part is amazing. The academic part is just average, which is fine. There is some elitism at the school; but I suppose that is to be expected. Once a child reaches middle school age, the academic quality suffers some just because there is only one teacher and a range of skills in the students. So if your kid needs geometry in 8th grade, he/she may not get it here. But if your focus is ballet, maybe you don't need geometry.

My child is completing her first year at NFB. She has not only learned ballet and french but has excelled in her academics. We are very pleased witht he school. It's a private school with a public school price. the school is balanced with a diverse student body.
