    It is a good school to make friends and new teachers are there and they do make sure you/student get a good eduation for your child.

    The quality of Helen S. faison Arts Academy academic roll is what I would rate a (B). The extracurricular activies and what not are great they definitely praise children for creativity and expression of oneself. Now this school is not the best location but the quality is good.
