Flagstaff Arts & Leadership Academy Reviews

FALA is a great school, the people are wonderful, the classes are small, and teachers are all so involved and invested in what they do. The community at FALA is inviting and accepting, and the academic programs are well-rounded and meaningful. Being able to learn art and dance has been a wonderful experience for me. The only thing I've personally ever had an issue with is the administration. The administration at FALA has tended to not be as keen to listen to what students have to say. Serious complaints and issues tend to go unnoticed. However, I'm hoping that with the recent changes in administration and management techniques, things might be on the road to positive change.

At Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy, the teachers make sure to interact with students more personally, to ask them if they need help, and to accommodate to students' individual needs. Classes are often exuberant and enjoyable, as teachers incorporate many methods of alternative learning and hands-on experiences. As well, students have the opportunity to participate in the many arts the school offers. FALA offers: visual arts, including Draw Paint Print, Mixed Media, 3-D Design, and so on; modern, jazz, African dance and others; jazz band, world music, FALA action band, and many more; theater and musical theater classes; and finally, creative writing courses. To be able to participate in creative classes like these alongside AP and other academically rigorous courses provides an exceptional experience and has helped me develop the passions I have today, which include social justice, dance, creative writing, language, and community service.
Fala is a very free-spirited and accepting environment which rubbed off on me. I really appreciated the fact that everyone was allowed to speak freely and not feel judged. The academics are amazing and so are the electives. They have the best art profrmas depending on your feild of art. I was able to juggle painting, dance, and my acidemics due to this amazing school!
