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!

I was not apart of the Fair Lawn School District until 4th grade. However, even at such a young age, I was able to recognize the wide variety of facilities and opportunities the school district has to offer. Compared to my old school district, Fair Lawn has a much larger sense of unity. There is something for everyone- no matter the age or interests. Even though the student body has many different personalities and interests, everyone still comes together in times of need. Whether it be a student facing a hard time or a faculty member in need, the Fair Lawn School District goes beyond the means of providing their students with an education, but a home.
I came to Fair Lawn a sophomore in high school. I was nervous and did not know anyone. The people there are so welcoming and caring, so I made friends fairly quickly. The community itself is great. Its peaceful, public transportation is available, resources are available all over, and there are always events for the community to get involved. There is a place to drop off kids in case parents are busy, there are parks and fields for children to be able to play. The Fair Lawn community is a very family oriented one.
