Foxcroft Academy Reviews
The drama program is excellent, but the music program leaves something to be desired and is relatively small.
The parts of the student body are not as accepting of people’s identities, as one would find at many other schools, but the school’s administration is hardworking and willing to look into instances of discrimination.
The school focuses heavily on sports and prides itself on its student athletes. If you are not an athlete, however, you may find yourself feeling left out of certain events.
The school has a 1-on-1 student iPad program that provides each and every student with technology to help them succeed.
The issue with a smaller school is that there is a limit to how much is available in terms of extracurriculars: if you love sports, you're set; if you love music, not so much. You have the basics in the arts, but nowhere near what a larger school would have available.
The food was good. It was better for dinner for the boarding students, in my opinion.
