What I like about Federal Way Public Academy (FWPA) the most is that their education system is different than other schools. Their education system offers a great learning experience for students. The teachers have a high expectation of students when it comes to discipline, participation, and knowing the material well. I also admire that they perfectly balance academic life to normal life because every year we host great celebrations, parties and talent shows. After school, I love that there are a variety of clubs to choose from but the best thing FWPA has to offer is Camp. From 6-10 grade, we and our teachers go to remote places in Washington to do a bunch of activities like hiking, playing games, and hanging around the bonfire. During the bonfire, we usually talk about confessions, our feelings, and what we appreciate. I rated this place excellent because not only is the education great, but its where I felt loved, cared, and accept. You'll find that we are one big family.

The education and teacher's concentration on you is outstanding in this school, but instead of piling the homework and making the students memorize all sorts of random things, take it slower and make the exams based more on lecture. There were a lot of students with great potential in my class, however, they wouldn't know what to study exactly and we would just receive the note of "just study everything" which isn't possible, especially of 6th-10th graders. The school means well, but it can be approved and change lots of student's knowledge even more.
Great community of students and teachers. There may not be much in terms of sports and othe rtypical high school activities, but what it does have no other school has. The sense of community is strong and hard to forget once its over.
