Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts Middle/High School Reviews

105 reviews

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.

As a Fine Arts School we have a lot of great opportunities for extracurriculars! National Honors Society is a club that is very active after school whether it's going to help tutor a student in what we call 9th period, helping teachers sort paperwork, or helping at tech rehearsals for our upcoming shows and productions! There is also our Thespian Society which has students apart of a Children's Theater class, and they go out and entertain kids all over the metroplex.We have Texas Dance Conservatory, which occurs after school and accommodates children of all ages in healthy studio environments with top notch professionals who come in and instruct. From NHS to our National Art Honors Society all the kids are very involved and active during and after school. A lot of the Advanced classes like Advanced Musical theatre, Academy Dance Company, and Advanced Theatre, and the people involved in those classes such as myself, dedicate majority of their time, even after school. At the beginning of the year we receive a contract that states that our primary commitment is to that class, because for example, those involved in Advanced Musical Theatre mainly audition for the musical in the fall, and that is an every day rehearsal schedule that the students enjoy dedicating themselves to. We have wonderful extra curricular opportunities, and I for one enjoy in immersing myself in that flow of schedule and environment.
I love Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts because it encourages people, from a very young age, to be unique. We have 3rd graders all the way up to high schoolers and that makes for an interesting and rare environment. Students can engage in dance, visual art, theater, choir, and more specific arts everyday. By the time you are in high school, 4 of 8 periods are electives. We have clubs such as Thespians, Film Club, and our Dance Conservatory which allow students to use the arts after school as well as during school. I think what makes FWAFA such a great place is that teachers incorporate the arts into academic projects. Incorporating arts into everything you do will not only make things more enjoyable, but help you in life with public speaking, problem solving, creative thinking, and more. FWAFA is a place for those who want to push their creative abilities beyond the arts.
