I have seen Farragut progress since the beginning of my Freshman year. Many people say that it is a bad school but in reality the system has changed dramatically. The faculty is engaging students through challenging courses in IB. The counselors are reaching out to student more if they see a student doing poorly. The school sadly still lacks in Honor and Advancement Placement classes but offers International Baccalaureate courses. Students are being more focused in school but the staff is still unfair to students. Some of the staff members treat students poorly and show that they underestimate the full potential of a student. Yet, you will meet some of the most amazing teachers that will make you realize that it is up to the student to either believe of what they think of you or beat the status quo. Overall it is changing and the students are making a change. If students are on track and thrive academically they will have no problems into getting into selective colleges.

I’ve been attending Farragut Career Academy since my freshman year. I have seen Farragut improve throughout the years. The schools administration has become stronger I believe. There is also a more effective academic system overall provided by administration. I believe slight changes in the school have motivated more of the students and push them to do their best. From a student perspective I am very aware that there are great opportunities provided at my school, although there is always room for more. I’ve also seen many students change their attitude for school, like they decide to do better. When their attitude before was very relentless ad care free.
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.
