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.
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!
