This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
I went to this school from 6th grade to 8th grade. This school was a very big part of my life. The teachers are great, friendly, and helpful. The students are all smart and mostly great people. At FSA the chances you get for excelling academically are amazing. I took the club Science Olympiad for all 3 years I was there. In 6th grade, I wasn't really interested and my best place was 7th or so at the notoriously easy regional competition. In 7th grade I was still not that interested, but I somehow got a few medals I wasn't chosen for the state team. Even though I wasn't chosen, our school qualified for the National tournament in Nebraska. Somewhat last-minute I was chosen as an alternate. I had a great experience at Nebraska and I prepared a lot for next year. That year I was chosen for the A team at every tournament including the national one at Wisconsin. I had a great experience there and got 2 top 20 places. Overall, FSA is a great school for the chances you get and how much you really learn with incorporation of fun learning at not completely book learning.
I have two children who attend FSA. The amount of homework can be difficult and challenging at times but fair as it reinforces what they learn in class. There is great communication between teachers, faculty, and parents and everyone truly cares about the education of our children. Overall we love the school. I would definitely recommend.
As a teacher, I love working with the wonderful staff at FSA. As one reviewer stated earlier, FSA does allow it's teachers to teach. As a parent, the academics are well above average and challenge my daughter in numerous ways.
FSA is so appealing to educators for two reasons: 1. FSA allows teachers to TEACH. Since I can spend less time stressing about test scores and entering data, I can create and implement better lessons for my students. 2. FSA has an outpouring of parent involvement. I could not get everything done that I needed to if it wasn't for all the help and support of the parent community here at FSA. It is such a relief to be a part of a community where EVERYONE wants to be involved in their child's learning.
Much better education than our public schools. A few of the classes might need improvement, but for the most part the teachers are very engaged with the students. You get the private school benefits for about half the price of other private schools.
My son is in 7th grade. This is our first year at FSA, and we really loved it. I get daily updated on my son's progress. The teachers are very friendly and highly professionalized. The most important for me is that my son gets professional education. I'm very satisfied with the school and most likely will send my other children there next year too.
I have 2 children at FSA and couldn't be happier. The teachers are excellent and you can tell the entire faculty really cares. The curriculum and homework are tough but fair, and I've seen significant growth in both children as a result. I would definitely recommend FSA.
My daughter is in her first year at FSAPS in 4th grade. She had been in private from K - 2. Then we moved her to Public for 3rd grade. It was a disaster. No parent ever wants their child coming home claiming they're "bored to death." We love this school. We drive from another county to get there every day. The teachers are great. There's so much more than testing at this school - so much hands on. Mr. Sener is the most incredible Principal I've ever seen. He is always around, always approachable, and makes the school his life mission. You can tell how proud he is of the school and has an incredible vision of growing the school. Best decision. Oh, and the diversity - that's what I want my child to be around. I just wish there wouldn't be homework during school breaks. Kids still need time to be kids.
