Frederick Douglass Academy Reviews
I've been going to FDA1 from grades 6-10 and it has gotten terrible. Im guessing they've mad it to a zone school, but now it seems like everyone in there doesnt even belong there. The staff stopped caring, and are just as tired of the place as we are. It has gotten so bad, I had to transfer.
My daughter has attended FDA1 for 4 years, and has received an excellent education. Although the NYC DOE has served to short-change the school in many ways, the principal and staff have worked diligently to provide resources and experiences not offered in most NYC public middle/high schools. No number rating can adequately define the school's worth! It is a Harlem treasure!
