FA is awesome! We have the best music program, more electives than dana and foothills, more activity days than any other school in our district, and uber nice teachers! Go FA!
I loved this school. Unlike other schools, you really become close with your classmates and everyone feels like family. The teachers are the best I've ever had- I cannot think of one single teacher that I did not like and/or was not good at teaching. Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent enviroment, and a beautiful campus. The classes are awesome- best electives ever!!!
This school has the best electives. Best teachers and activities.
I think First Ave. is a great school.
