My experience at Fayetteville High School was great. There was not as much diversity as I expected but there was enough. Overall I really liked Fayetteville High School but at some moments I did not like it as much. For example, when we transitioned from regular seven day classes to having block schedule and four classes a day. For the most, that was easy to transition into but it took a while. One thing I wish that could be changed is the rule about off campus lunch, especially for seniors. I feel like we are almost adults about to be in the real world so we need a little bit of responsibly and a chance to show we are mature. If in any way the students show that they cannot handle the privileges given to them, then they should be taken away.
Review Fayetteville School District
Fayetteville High School in particular was an alright experience for me. I moved to Fayetteville my sophomore year and it was difficult to make friends. There are many opportunities career wise, such as clubs and extracurriculars, but the school was very much a large clique. The teachers were a hit and miss, ranging from excellent to very poor. The counselor I had wasnt the best, she was very hard to contact and was always busy when I needed her the most. Overall my experience was three out of five stars.
I have two children enrolled in the Fayetteville School District, currently one in first grade and the other in fourth grade. They attend Leverette Elementary and I have been satisfied with this school. The faculty will work well with parents in anyway they can. The teachers will keep you updated on the development of your children. Also have many school activities and functions for the children and families. I am satisfied with this district.
