My daughter attends the Legal Studies Academy within First Colonial High School and it is truly an amazing program. She is in her 2nd year and every day she comes home excited and talking about what she learned that day. The academy director has gone to great lengths to provide the best opportunity for the students including bringing in former and current law enforcement officials, attorneys and judges to teach. There is a full-scale courtroom in the school where the students conduct mock trials. The majority of my daughter's classes are law based which I think breaks away from what kids normally get bored with. The program only invites 100 freshman students from the district each year and it is a challenging curriculum. The school staff, from principle to security has been nothing but helpful and professional.
This is a very fine high school. Most especially I have been impressed with how my student has become involved in the activities offered by First Colonial. The instrumental music programs are wonderful and have given my daughter a chance to excel and to participate in events and performances she would never have been able to in our previous school. As a junior this year she had so many advanced placement courses to choose from, she was actually disappointed that she could only take 8 classes! The administration is student centered and supportive.
