No school is going to care more about your child! This school is a family they want to see all of their students succeed just like they would want to to see their own child achieve! I am a 2013 graduate and Fryeburg academy was my 3rd high school to attend. Fryeburg Academy will never be a place I just received my high school diploma.. It's my home! It's a family!

It was recently scored among other boarding schools in maine, and received a D. It's not hard to figure out why, most of the teachers just seem to push the students threw to get it all over with.

Great school period. We moved from N.H. so our son could attend and we are very impressed with all the teachers and faculty. Getting involved is key and kids are encouraged from there advisors to do so.Great music department,publication dept. and lots of clubs for community service.Run like a college and the kids rise to the occasion! A+

This school has given me the experiences to grow as an individual. There is ample opportunity for self-discovery and learning.

I'm in my last year at Fryeburg, and I'm pretty happy with the overall experience. Great school for those who want to be involved in the arts. The jazz department has won national awards. Teachers are good at what they do and care about the students. Sports are relatively average, some good teams some bad. The only regret I have is not getting involved more. College placement is almost a top priority here.

I am the proud parent of two Fryeburg Academy Graduates (2005 & 2006), and a future Graduate (Class of 2014). I intentionally moved to this area from just across the boarder in Conway N.H.,because of Fryeburg Acadamy's excellent reputation. The education you can expect for your Child is unparalleled anywhere else, and the village of Fryeburg is truely a campus style community.

As a former stuent who graduated in 2000 I highly recommend this school. I have 2 children of my own that will be attending, one way or another, even if we have to move from where we are to make it happen.

Both of my children attended Fryeburg Academy and graduated last year. The school has alot of after school activities and my children took advantage of every thing the Academy had to offer. Both are attending colleges and I feel that this school has gone beyond the norm to help them get there. the school has an open lunch campus and many kids came to my house for lunch, when they began getting back late the school politely called to inform me, which came to an end. if any days either child missed and i didn't call in that they were sick , i always received a call from the school.

Believe it or not this is a good school. Many students who attend here say that it is boring but I believe it is a good school to go attend. You get a chance to meet teenagres in grades 9-12 from all over the world and you even have the chance to be in small classes. 7 stars.

First of all, I am speaking first hand as a former student, so hear me out. Yes it's great to go to school with kids from all over the world, if you socialize with them, and most of the time if you're a 'townie' you may not. Fryeburg Academy does like to see their students suceed, and does have opportunities as far as that goes. The school imparticularly caters to the dorm students. As long as they're happy, the school will continue to get the parents tutition checks. As an average student who lived in the school district, I was overlook by the administration. When I got a detention I just skipped that, and nothing ever happend. I missed a solid two months of school and my mother never got a phone call, I came clean and fessed up. What kind of school keeps their students parents in the dark about something like that!

What a wonderful opportunity for children. Not only local students but also foreign students in a small Maine town!
