Something I like about Farragut Career Academy is the programs basically how they offer International baccalaureate Diploma program. During Freshman and Sophomore year I took Middle years program for International Baccalaureate then in Junior and Senior year I took Diploma Program For International Baccalaureate. Another thing I like is the after school programs they offer I was in YTC- After School Matters in this program is basically about technology, they teach us about technology we learn how it works and also we learn how to fix technology. In this program we help the school environment for teachers,staff and students to have good technology. Farragut Career Academy also offers college readiness by the organizations Enlance and Gear up.

I was able to receive a lot of help to improve myself and my decisions from all the way from freshman year I have different perspective towards my future The support from GEAR UP program at school was able to guiding me and helping me for any situation I go through , Not just GEAR Up but also a few teacher I am really fortunate of having a group of people that stood in my side.During four years of High School I have experience and overcome and few things about myself and take a chance to do something and be involved, In JROTC program I was able to learn about how to take leadership and being part of teams which makes me feel confidence about myself. What I would want to change will be the cafeteria and having are privilege to have are electronic devices at all all time without taking advantage of the privilege .
My experience in Farragut has been good so far. I made new friends that are funny and friendly. Teachers are willing to help me out when I'm confused on the lesson. Teachers respect my opinion as well as the other students. There are activities after school which is a good way to earn money if you are accepted. I was in a technology program for my Junior Year. It was interesting learning things that I didn't know before. now as a Senior I was placed in advanced classes. I am taking two college classes. My Spanish college class I find it easy since it is my native language and understand the things we do very easily. The teacher explains the things we are learning to life choices we need to take or will take in our future. Which is something that I really like about that class. My English college class proves to be more harder for me, but it has though me a lot about how to write a good easy.
