Do you know how to tell whether or not FBA is a great school or not? By its attendance! A great private school so close to a military base would have every grade full with a waiting list...NOT FBA. It's a mediocre school not worth the cost of tuition and teachers who will cause damage to your child.

FBA is a genuinely loving and caring family of dedicated professional educators and families partnering together in academic excellence, biblical Truth, and character training, building lifelong relationships to affect change for time & eternity.

my daughter went to public school k-7th and then came to fba of universal city and I have been very happy with fba of universal city an excellent school with great teachers and administration staff would highly recommend the school



- a
FBA used to be a good school. Since the new administration has taken over (4.5 years ago), it has really changed. Although it is touted as a college prep school, it's really not. The guidance counselor explained that if a student goes on to college, the school has prepared him/her. Therefore, in the school's eyes, it is college prep. I had never heard that definition before! There is a twisted emphasis on indoctrination, and the administrator and some teachers hold and teach beliefs that are not orthodox to protestant Christianity (ex. epilepsy is actually demon possession; having the Bible physically laying open can actually ward off evil). The academics are sub-par; our children, who were A & B students - are now struggling in their new schools because of the lack of good teaching. Last year many teachers left. Apparently, the school and church just give the excuse that the teachers and families that have left are just disgruntled, as if to discount those people's experiences. When you have a large percentage of staff leave, and families, there's something to it.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
The math teacher was unable to explain some Algebra II problems during a study session. She's the only math teacher in the high school. There is hardly any teacher development, and many teachers do not change their methods/lessons from year to year.


Amount of homework: no rating


- a
I only know of what my kids had, and it seemed okay. Overall I can't say.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Students are taught to spy on each other and teachers. The administration has punished students severely based solely on the word of another student with no corroborating evidence.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teacher was the main factor in the negative relationship I had with the school. She was the beginning of the rigidity that I felt was leading to withdrawing my child from the school.


Amount of homework: no rating


- a
The homework wasn't a factor in my opinion concerning the school. The grade level of my child didn't lend itself to much homework.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
This academy was more business than school. Not all schools are created equal and the teaching staff didn't appear to be qualified.
