Federal Way Public Academy is a unique school in which one can get an education as if they were attending a private school. There's a lot of homework and responsibility meant for an above-average student who is academically inclined, so the decision to go there should be considered carefully. Although there are issues with the school (the most notable one being teachers' favoritism), it is overall an exceptional place.

Federal Way Public Academy may be an unconventional school, however, it is unique with amazing people and interesting traditions. It is a poor choice if you like PE class as there is no gym. However, there is a multitude of events that are just as exciting. The curriculum can be a bit challenging but it is helpful.
The teachers are phenomenal as they are not afraid to personally engage with their students providing an interactive and effective lesson. The environment created by the teachers gives the students a safe place to want to learn and challenge themselves which is crucial especially at the young ages at which they accept students. The strict curriculum is constantly pushing students to work harder, creating diligent and passionate students who are ready to face the world head on.
