School Reviews

It is awesome. The school has provided me a very pleasant education and the best online schooling experience eliminating my stress. It was nice to have the teachers who will help when I come across any difficulty in understanding the lessons and allowed me to work at my own pace.

I?'m thankful to Forest Trail Academy for providing me a high school diploma. I have gained American Diploma from FTA. Being a person belongs to military family we use to relocate from place to place and because of relocation there was a disturbance in my education. FTA has resolved my problem, after joining FTA I have got my education without any interruption.

31. Forest Trail Academy is an amazing school. I?'m an athlete and find less time in attending the traditional school. I was suffering in managing both the school and also the career because traditional schools have fixed timings. I had missed my school for many times because of the sports tournaments. Once I joined FTA everything has gone quite comfortable. It has provided me flexibility in time for learning, so that I can concentrate on studies when am free on that day. I would like to say is Forest Trail Academy has given me an opportunity to earn the diploma without missing my career, made me successful in both the studies and the career.

My son being a professional surfer, had to dedicate most of his time to practice and tournaments. Forest Trail Academy allowed him to continue concentrating on the surfing and complete his education at his own pace. His grades from regular school were always low but since joining Forest Trail Academy, I have seen tremendous improvements in the grades. I?''m really happy with the quality of education and the personalized attention provided by the teachers.

We are so happy we found Forest Trail Academy for our son. While the classes are online, the teachers and staff are still very much involved in interacting with the parents and students. The academics are challenging enough and the staff seem to actually care about the success of the students. The 12 month flexible schedule and NCAA approved courses are just what we were looking for since our son is active in both sports and music. He now has all the time he needs to travel and study his violin.
