This is the only school in the grant county are that rates the highest in educating the black community. WE are above the state average by more then 25 %. Our school not only out scores the state average in the ethnicity group but we are 11 % higher in the white group. We even score at a rate of 10 % higher in free and reduced lunch participants. Over all Faulkner is one of the top educaters in the Grant County area.

The creator of Dr. R.H. Faulkner Academy has pushed not some, but all of the students. She won't settle for anything but excellence. She makes everyone work. She has students in the 6th grade doing 12th grade work. One of the 3rd grade students, and my friend, got a perfect score in iread this previous year.There was an honors class at the local middle school, and only 3 people made it... ALL FROM FAULKNER! However, the school could improve on having a looser dress code, having more extracirriculars, and communication amongst some teachers with the parents on their child's grades. Also, they need to get an A rating instead of a C this year. As well as keeping certain students away from others to avoid discomfort. To conclude, I like how the 5th grade English teacher really connects internally to her students.

I have been with this school since it has opened. Faulkner has teachers and staff that truly love the students and would do anything to help and see these students succeed. This school has been through ups and downs and they have stood strong. I applaud Faulkner for everything they have done. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done. This is the School of Choice.

My three children attend Faulkner and has since its been open. I realize that the school has been through some changes while we have been there, but the goal and focus of educating the students has not. The school is dedicated to making sure ALL children succeed in school and in life. They offer College Nights, Open Houses, and have made tremendous strides in all areas of academics. My children went to Montessori school for Preschool and Kindergarten and Faulkner offers to them what others could not. My oldest child attended two schools prior to Faulkner opening and neither could meet her educational desires or needs, not challenge her. The school offers other wonderful activities as well such as choir, newspaper, sign language, and Ti Chi, and Tae Kwon Do. They also have educational and entertaining visitors from the Honey Well Center almost monthly. In Grant County, this is my opinion is the Only school that offers any type of worthwhile schooling for families who truely want their children to succeed beyond High School. I am grateful to the effort of all the staff and Board members for making Faulkner the school of Choice for me and my children.
