Fair Lawn School District Reviews

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!

Very nice town with extra help, for free and computers available for public use. The Fair Lawn High School Library prints in color and in black and white for free. In addition there are tutors there everyday for every subject until 5 o'clock pm. Also the Recreation Center has an amazing gym, arcade, and computer lab that also allows you to print for free. The town it self is very clean and safe. There is a strong no bullying policy also.
Fair Lawn schools care about their students education. However, they seem to take education as their only priority, leaving other very important aspects of a student'd daily life behind. For example, cases of bullying or students having problems with other students are felt to be taken as a joke and not treated case by case or totally fairly.
