Florida A.&M. University Developmental Research School Reviews

116 reviews
All Categories
Attending Florida A&M University Developmental has been a wonderful way of reuniting with people who look like me and have similar interests. Because Florida A&M University Developmental Research School is such a small school in comparison to the surrounding public schools, it is a very close-knit environment. This allows the students to create better relationships with their teachers and administrators, which translates into the classroom. As someone who has always been shy and withdrawn in large settings, at Florida A&M University Developmental Research School I am actually comfortable enough to speak up in class, which has, of course, helped my grades. They also helped me recognize and focus on my passion for writing by allowing me to take English classes at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University through the dual enrollment program, thereby earning college credit hours for Freshman and Sophmore level classes I will need when I matriculate to university.
