Falls Lake Academy Reviews
I have been attending Falls Lake Academy for five years now, and this year I will be a part of the first graduating class. There is a reason why I have stayed with the school through my academic career. Falls lake academy has given me more opportunities, support, and the confidence for my future. I feel like I wouldn't be where I am today without all of my wonderful teachers and the dedication they put into their jobs. I can't wait to be one of the first people to ever graduate from the school!
Falls Lake Academy was built a few years ago in the Granville county area and is known for being a step up from public schools in the area. The academics are more one-on-one, your presentation skills are put into use to prepare you for college, and there are many opportunities throughout the school year to work on your collaboration and teamwork skills. Students are challenged on a daily basis with their school work, and are expected to perform at a certain level. Depending on who you are as a person and as a student, this school may or may not be the best option for you.
Falls Lake Academy is a new school in the Granville county area with a reputation of having more to offer than the schools around it. At FLA, students are on a 'PBL' system, or Project Based Learning. Each quarter of the year, students are placed into groups and are expected to work together to answer an essential question. These projects allow students to tap into their creative side while improving their collaboration skills and ability to comprehend the meaning behind the question. Because Falls Lake Academy has this unique aspect to it, many are drawn to the school. Students in that school are challenged and not all are ready for the amount of effort it takes to meet the challenge.
