WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- Fishburne Military School is finding itself more and more popular with those in the Valley.
So much so that they now have a waiting list for those who want to enroll in the day program.
It's the first time anyone at the school can remember ever having a waiting list.
The current number of day students is 25 and the school won't accept anymore than that so the class sizes can stay small.
The small class sizes are one reason why students like Fishburne.
"The teachers are a lot more patient. In a lot of other schools the teachers are just trying to get everybody through the curriculum. Here they're actually trying to make sure, not only do you get the grades, but you understand what the teacher is saying," said Thaddeus Edwards, a student as Fishburne.
Parents also love the fact that there is a high college acceptance rate as every student in the past decade had been accepted into at least one college.
