My daughters attended 2 different middle schools before attending Falmouth Academy and I could not be more pleased with FA. The small class size at FA allows for teachers to meet all the kids needs - whether they need extra help in a subject or extra challenge. The school does have high standards and a rigorous curriculum but there are many supports built in to the system to help kids succeed many "average" kids are thriving at FA. The teachers are happy, have the ability to be creative and are invested in the school and kids. The kids certainly do have lives other than academics. There are sports and clubs at FA that meet after school and the kids have time to socialize on the weekends. I have been very impressed by the communication. The progress reports are detailed and it is very easy to contact your child's advisor or teacher. The school is small which is a strength in terms of building a community where the students and teachers know and support each other. The small size does mean there are limited sports offerings- soccer, basketball and lacrosse. This may be a drawback for a child that excels in a different sport and wishes to play with his or her school.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
