Fayetteville School District Reviews

I like the University of Arkansas academically. However, at first, I had a hard time making friends. Fayetteville has the qualities of both a city and a small town. The small-town aspect made it hard to make friends, as I felt everyone knew each other. It is also a large population of students from Texas and I am from St. Louis so that made it difficult. However, now I am happy I am here and very content in my decision to stay with the Fayetteville School District. The culture of Fayetteville is amazing. The square, the downtown area, the restaurants, and the shopping are all an enjoyable part of being in the Fayetteville School District. Academically, the courses are typically challenging. However, I have gained so much knowledge and insight from attending the University of Arkansas. There are so many resources available if you are struggling which I typically tend to take full advantage of. As a college junior, I can confidently say I am proud to be apart of this community.

Fayetteville High School provides so many great opportunities for it's students! No matter what a student wants to get involved in, Fayetteville High School has it. There are so many ways through the school to get involved in the community. Programs offered include everything from national honors society to baking club. The Fine Arts program is amazing as well. Just this year, the drama department put on the musical "You're a good man Charlie Brown" and it was incredible! The numerous career paths offered allow students to explore career interests while still in High School. Finally, the school is very good at preparing students for college with AP courses, ACT/SAT workshops, career classes, etc.
Fayetteville High School is a place where greatness resides but is not nurtured in the way it should be. The average student will not have a great experience at FHS but the outstanding student or student athlete will do wonders here! College readiness is taught too late and only to those who the school thinks will be going to college. We have great agricultural studies classes and there is a club for anything you could ever want, but administration are casually racist and it's not the place to be for a black student.
