Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts Middle/High School 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.
There is simply no other school in Fort Worth Texas quite like my school FWAFA. The academic rigor and everyone's desire to be great, makes me want to strive to be great. It has been such a positive learning experience and I get to go to school and dance and do musical theater and sing! Meanwhile I'm being challenged to be the best student possible. Everyone is so hardworking, the parents put in extra hours to make sure everything is going smoothly in the classroom and on stage, while get ready to put on productions. We carry ourselves with the utmost integrity, and while we advance in the Academic UIL, I got the chance to advance in the UIL One Act Play we did at the same time, and acquired Best Actress at the Bi-District Meet. They recognize your gifts and magnify it, so they can cultivate it and bring forth the best out of us. Our teachers are so amazing! Their kindness is overwhelming and their dedication to us as students because they recognize that the arts are so important to us leaves me so unbelievably grateful that I go to this school. The school musical is our state championship, and the cabarets are our homecomings! The way every student expressed their love for the arts whether it's through art or singing a Latin piece or playing the trumpet and guitar or just performing on stage, it's all magnificent in its own way. Every single person has a place at FWAFA, and I am so fortunate and blesses that I occupy one of them!
