I liked the environment and diversity this high school had. There were many good teachers, but there were some science teachers that were not as passionate about teaching. The school had many clubs and activities to offer and be involved in. Most students connected with each other and knew everyone. It was a safe school with a good faculty. I did not like the science teachers or the lack of school spirit. The school did not do many cool things except the gym unit of social dance during senior year.

My experience at Fair Lawn High School has been phenomenal ever since I became part of this family starting my Sophomore year of High School. I was amazed by the opulence of the school in terms of friendliness and diversity. The staff is very amicable, the teachers are extremely supportive of their students, with no exception, and the students are generally very cooperative of one another. However, the only thing I would like to see changing in the school is the administration's involvement in certain sports teams and clubs. For example, the tennis court needs to be fixed, because it is not very clean and has some cracks, and the JV team is never given attention. Overall, my experience was very good!
Fair Lawn School District has always had schools to look out for you and help you succeed. The staff most especially helps you with anything and everything. I have always struggled with school work and assignments, but teachers would always help me stay on top of my work and help me through anything. This school is very involved and fun to attend. It has really helped me begin to set up my future and help me with all the resources I need.
