Definitely the best school in the area for academics, resources and diversity, all of which are thanks to the boarding students. Kids from the area are blessed to able to attend a school that gets benefits from having paying students. There are many excellent teachers, but also quite a few who are inexperienced, you just have to know which teachers to shoot for. My least favorite thing was that there is annoying push for teachers to use technology whether or not it is needed. Also small town issues can be unpleasant at times, but are unavoidable.

I attended Foxcroft Academy for all four years of high school. I came in not knowing a single student or teacher, but was welcomed with open arms, and I began to make friends in my first period class. Scholastically, I was challenged everyday by teachers who did all that they could to see their students succeed. I was also able to choose from a variety of electives, from rock band to forensics, from film-making to woodworking. I was also able to participate in athletics as well as theatrical productions. During my time there, I rarely saw any instances of bullying, but whenever a situation arose, it was taken care of very seriously. The administrators, faculty, and staff are also very supportive and understanding of the diverse student body, often encouraging the international or boarding students to participate in activities with the local students.
I love how teachers at Foxcroft Academy put in so much for the students and truly care for them. The school feels like a big family: people look out for and support each other despite differences. Respect is extremely valued and pushed inside the classroom and in events, along with the idea that we are all one 'herd'. If I'm honest, the only changes I would suggest come down to the students themselves, and their sometimes negative attitudes towards their peers.
