Takoma Academy Reviews

Takoma Academy is the type of school where you should be very cautious with what your child gets themselves into. You might be thinking " Takoma Academy is probably a great school since its private," but in reality it actually isn't. The academics in this school aren't the best, it could definitely better but college readiness has to be one of the schools weak-spots. Takoma Academy succeeds in the school safety and the music department. Takoma doesn't possess as many opportunities for college as other students in public schools might receive. They have no programs to prepare you for college and it seems as though everyone who works there only work for their paycheck. I am applying to this scholarship not only for the scholarship, but also to review my school and tell others about it.

My experience at Takoma Academy (TA) has been a wonderful experience thus far. Takoma Academy not only has a devoted faculty and administration staff that surround us with all the materials needed to succeed, and their availability to the students’ needs are unsurpassed. TA is a very diverse school, sharing many different cultural backgrounds; (black, Asian, and Hispanic to name a few. TA also provides a variety of extracurricular activities such as: Robotics Club, STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics), basketball, track, dance, choir (gold medalist in the World Choir games competition in South Africa), and many more; basketball, track, choir being activities of choice for myself; and now the NSHSS (National Society of High School Scholars recently added to the list. I have found that, if there is a student need at TA, the resources are either there or instructions to obtain them will be made available. I would like to see a newer, modern and state of the art facility.
Well, I am 18 years old & at Takoma Academy with a 4.19GPA. I am a part of many clubs and extra-curricular activities, such as volleyball, softball, dance and more. I'm a part of the National Honor Society and many more. I have participated in softball, cheerleading, and serve as Captain of TA’s Varsity Volleyball Team. In addition, I am a part Determined to Enter into Eternal Presence liturgical dance group and I enjoy singing Advanced Alto in the Takoma Academy Chorale. With all of these activities and everything that I partake in, I have learned that we have become a family.
