  • i dislike this school. too much drama and fights. everyone talks bout each other but then again which school isn't that way? i can say the teachers are very willing to help their students and stay after school to help you

  • the school is small, you have to walk up 5 flights of stairs and the uniform code is too much to handle. Though the teachers get involved, it's no fun. it's just boring. one of the lamest schools. you're better off going to the high school that's in the same building called teachers preparatory

  • I am A 9th Grader At FDA VII. of course like all high schools FDA 7 has its Drama And Flaws but overall it is a good school . Teachers are always available , they interact with students and care about all of us . classes are longer than most but its worth it . we have many clubs and many oppurtunities to do fun things within our school although it is college based. All students wear the uniform which is suprising to others. FDA VII is a good school and i will graduate continuing to live up to our schools reputation.

  • I go to FDA 7 and in my opinion it's great. Students actually learn something and there are high averages too. This is a nice school with many activities to partake in and there are also trips. It is a uniformed school however but few days are dressed down. I love my High school and I'm in the tenth grade.

  • FDA 7 is a tremendous school. It helps prepare kids for college and just the real world in general. Teachers value their jobs and take teaching your kids the right material very serious. They help to support you academically, emotionally, and mentally. Any student who has the pleasure of going to this school is one of the luckiest kids in NYC
