Fayetteville School District Reviews

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.

I attended the Fayetteville School District mostly throughout my elementary, middle, junior high, and high school education. I was always prepared for the upcoming school year. They were pretty great about having us be involved in school activities for the drama department, athletic, art department, etc. I did not have any trouble what so ever. If anything ever occurred, they acted in a compassionate and timely manner. We were taught to be one big family, and we still are one big family!
Fayetteville school district is one of the most diverse school districts in the nation due to the University of Arkansas campus located in the same city. The UofA brings lot of cultures, races, and ethnicities to the Fayetteville school district and this is a very important trait that puts it above the rest. Along with being a very developing area and attracting good teachers Fayetteville school district has lots of people that come together to make the school district the best, such as parents and administrators. Overall Fayetteville school district is a great place to enjoy a quality education with great teachers, great facilities, and lots of diversity. The food could definitely be better though.
