71st High School Reviews

When I graduated in 2012, administration and overall environment was relatively positive. Administration tended to focus more on image than genuine feeling; I have specific memories including being punished based on minor dress code issues and visible sexual orientation. Overall, my experience was positive being that this was my third high school due to military PCS.

Seventy First High has is a poor school that doesn’t help with preparing students for college. The counselors act like they aren’t interested in helping you and the food is expired, sometimes even not cooked fully. It feels like the school just spends the money they get on the football team and that worries me because you have people like me who don’t play sports and has to find another way into college.
Seventy-First overall is a pretty good school offering many things ranging from clubs and sports to academic opportunities. For example, juniors and seniors can qualify for the high school connections program in which they can take college courses at Fayetteville Technical Community College.
