Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts Middle/High School Reviews
I graduated in 2017 and I really loved the culture and teachers as they would go out of their way to help students struggling in a class or being new there. The art classes were taken seriously along side academics and competitions. They definitely prepared everyone for college when a lot of the original staff were still there. However, issues arrive with the CEO Clint Riley and school board who have alienated the staff and arts that they say they love and care for you can find news reports about it. The visual art classes I was in also dropped in quality since we were a small group compared to the other arts. Some arts have been disbanded like boy & girl choir or orchestra. From what I've heard trying to catch up with teachers are being forced to teach some classes they aren't qualified for now. Office/admin staff come off distant and rude and are the secondary issue. Otherwise the teachers who work there are a gem and hope the ones who left are finding a healthier work environment.
Attended since third grade. Diversity needs to improve. Dance , art and music plus theater departments are excellent ! Students are great as well as some of the teachers. Parents are very supportive. Small student body which has its advantages and disadvantages. School does hep prepare students for college and has rigorous courses. Overall, very positive experience.
I like the freedom and opportunity for students to be themselves here and explore unusual career paths like dance, voice, acting, painting, etc. The teachers are generally very caring and good educators who want to see their students succeed. I would like to see more diversity in teacher preference (ie teachers not showing favoritism in relation to casting/choosing students for special performance opportunities). I would also like to see the students be able to express themselves(since they are all artists in some way) through fashion, meaning eliminating the uniforms currently worn there. The students should be able to wear something that feels good to them and that represents how they feel instead of being constricted by bland colors and no personal choice options.
