My granddaughter arrived from China at the end of June 2015 with no English. She was placed in a Mpls public school where she did not gain much of a vocabulary. I transfered her to Friendship Academy and within 3 weeks she was speaking English, not with great sentence structure but with understanding. We like the dedication of the teachers, administrators, and class size.

I'm the grandparent of a student at Friendship Academy of the Fine Arts and I'm so glad my daughter brought her daughter to this school. I'm impressed with several aspects of the school: Concern and respect for my granddaughter and the family; professionalism of the staff, from the Principal to the janitorial staff and, finally, the teachers seem to enjoy their job. This to me is key! The teacher/student ratio is also a plus.

THIS SCHOOL HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE CHILDREN THAT WE HOLD THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR. THEY ARE VERY DISRESPECTFUL TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS, THEY DON'T HAVE THE BEST JUDGEMENT, WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO OUR PRECIOUS CARGO. THE TEACHERS ARE DUMBER THAN THE STUDENTS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TWO OR THREE TEACHERS.ACADEMIC WISE THAT'S ALL THEY ARE GOOD FOR THIS SCHOOL SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN. THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE A PERFORMING ARTS SCHOOL... NOT EVEN! UNTIL THEY HAVE FURTHER TRAINING AND ADDITIONAL FUNDING THE DOORS SHOULD BE SHUT! YOU PROVIDE SO MUCH SUPPLIES AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR THEN YOU LOOK UP AND THEY NEED! I ONLY SENT MY CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS CHRISTIAN BASED ... NOPE! ALTHOUGH IT'S IN A CHURCH YOU WOULDN'T THINK SO.

This is a small setting where children are nurtured. The staff is caring. The test scores show that all children enrolled grow and make academic gains.



- a parent
This school lacks consistency. They do not follow through with their school hand book. The teachers do not get adequate support from the administrative staff. I would not recommend this school!
