Fayette County Public Schools Reviews

As a whole, my experience with the Fayette County School System has been pleasant, and certainly irreplaceable. I do wish, however, that there were more resources available to high school students regarding the full college process. I have found myself scavenging through the internet the summer before my senior year because I felt so unprepared for the application process. The counselors at my school stressed having a great GPA and SAT/ACT testing and taking AP courses or dual enrollment, but there are hundreds of other aspects that go into applying for a school, like college sports recruitment, for example. I hope a great change is in the county's future.

Attending Fayette county high school was a very big change for me. Especially coming in from a different state , and being intorduced to a new curriculum. The band program is magnificent, if I would have not joined the marching Tigers, school would have been a challenge. Going into my junior year I realize it wouldn't have been hard. The students and the staff here are very helpful , and encouraging. Whenever times are hard I am able to talk with any staff member in the school . The fine arts department is very involved with the school. Our track team is constantly breaking records. The teachers always give us that push and support that we need in order to go through the day. Junior year is a very tough year, but I have the support and help of staff members, and my family.
I liked how the teachers would get so involved into there teaching. Espically if they saw you struggling, they would find time to help pull some extra study time or extra work to help you acheive!
