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.
Review Fayetteville School District
Fayetteville School District is a really great district for a kid to attend - particularly the high school. It has the resources and dedicated teachers to give kids the experience they need. However, I had two issues with this district: first, it has a top-heavy and out-of-touch administration. Second, before high school, it's almost segregated. Because of where the lower schools are located, they all have one dominant class and race group. That's a problem - the lower class schools tend to be less respected and have less money, resulting in lower class kids getting a worse education and being more likely to drop out. Luckily, there's only one high school - which was great because it provided plenty of diversity.
This district has some great teachers who I hope I can keep connections with as long as I'm still in town because not only were they wonderful teachers, but they were wonderful people, too. I also made an amazing group of diverse friends with different backgrounds which I really enjoyed because we were so different yet so loving and caring towards each other. I also think it was a good place to join clubs and activities since we had so many to choose fro, and it was nice that we had better funding than most districts. I think I'm going to go back to help guide my friends through college a little better because the school wasn't exactly the best at that, but I think a few improvements can change that, and I hope to be able to help guide that. I also really appreciated how involved all the parents were in the band program. They helped us a lot, and also helped me make sense of why their kids turned out to be so kind and loving.
