FA is proud to be an ERP Honor Roll school

We’re proud to be named an #ERPHonorRoll school, which recognizes high-performing, achievement gap-closing schools across the nation. The Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll, sponsored by CBEE, is the only school recognition program in the state using student achievement outcomes as the criteria. The Honor Roll is a valuable resource for all schools to identify successful peers and learn about best practices that are improving student achievement.
