Fontbonne Academy was the greatest 4 years of my life. It prepared me for college and beyond. When I entered college, I was above and beyond most of my peers. I found college easy after dealing with the demands and pressure Fontbonne put on you. The teachers really cared about who you were and if you were doing well or not. They pushed for the best, not just as a student but as a person. Many of the friends I made there, I am still friends with. We have a support system after high school. Fontbonne provided the atmosphere, teachers and peers you needed to excel.
At Fontbonne, they definitely lay on the homework. There are free periods during the school day to get help with difficult subjects and finish homework. I used those and still ended up doing hours of homework at home. This being said, I was ready for college and actually found it easy after going to a high school that was as demanding as it was.
