Focus Learning Academy Of Northern Columbus

The school is sometimes over-competitive. The school day is an extra hour longer than normal. Students are often drilled and there isn't a lot of project-based learning.

Many of the students are foreign-born (Somalia) but the school does emphasize citizenship and community well.

There are some teachers who are too harsh, some who are too lax, and some in between.

Very unique school. Almost all the students are Somali. Unfortunately, the school building itself is terrible (office building converted into a school) and the administration is unorganized.

GREAT SCHOOL!!!!!! The teachers at Focus are VERY caring!! They really care for us student and are very motivational. The school itself stays very clean and it's in a good area. The school also provides a daycare for students with children and a guidance counselor that will help you with whatever you need!! They will even buy your child diapers or pick you up for school!! This is a very great school and the teachers are awesome!! Mrs.Johnson,Mrs.Roundtree,Mrs.McFarland,Mrs.Doss,Mrs.Verdina,Mrs.Pagona,Mrs.Harper I LOVE YOU ALL!!! And thanks for always caring and being there for me!! :)
