- Frederick County Public Schools, MD
Parent: FCCS is an academically rigorous environment that sets high standards for each student. It instills the awareness of virtues and uses this framework to build character. The teachers are dedicated and hard-working. The school building and location are lacking and it's shame that this excellent classical school doesn't have something better. The outdoor playground is like a prison yard and being in an industrial business park makes you wonder who is working in and around very close proximity to your cildren? Fortunately the academics and teachers make up for the logistical shortcomings. Finally, if you are not up for an environment that puts academics first, and you want sports or after school activities, this is not the school for you. Here, As a parent, you'll also recognize your young children are capable of so much more. This school is serious about education and somehow instills in children a genuine hunger for learning.

Parent: Norfolk Academy provided an extraordinary educational journey for my two children, fueling their curiosity and inspiring them to explore new avenues that they might not have discovered without the incredible teachers and coaches at this school. My oldest child, who came in sixth grade, now studies engineering at an Ivy League university; he particularly loved the robotics team, as well as soccer, swimming, and crew teams. My youngest child, who is a senior at NA, came in first grade, and she has developed a passion for medicine and health, largely through the school's Global Health Fellows program and the Medical Scholars program.
