  • FDAIV is a school that I myself would never recommend to any one looking to really further their education. There are no electives, clubs, or etc. The students are violent and seriously uneducated. Put it this way, you can pull out your phone in the middle of class and not face any real consequence. It's a school with a lot more pros than cons. Just being blunt here. Do not attend!
