    i go to the academy and i hate it. they failed me as a student. i went there by choice because i was a few credits behind. i told the ladies that are in charge my plan and if they can help me reach my goal (because im a special needs child or ESE). the promised that once i was done with my credits i could go back to Fort Walton Beach High. I an A B student my GPA is around 3.4 i was in clubs and sports at Fort Walton Beach High. they are slow to update you on your credits and what not. its like jail! and the kids a horrible. if you like quiet studies cancel that because it never quiet and all the teachers are either getting fired or quitting. this is by far the worse school i've ever been to. thanks to them i wont be experiencing my last year of high school like the rest of my friends. i wont get to see what prom is like homecoming senior picture senior skip day i wont walk across the stage with my childhood friends. the academy failed me as a student crushed my dreams and my chance that i'll never get back. I HATE THE ACADEMY!

    The teachers work hard they are instucting the students in FCAT. Yesterday they took the Gates McKinny test. Classes are small so there is more one on one instruction. Great teachers all are certified. There focus is on ACADEMICS! The caliber and quality of students are good. It has become a school of choice with imphasis on strong academics. They have math english science 2 READING PROGRAM CLASSES and THE WHEEL course and drugs & alchol & tobacco prevention health classes in Crestview Florida
