Fife School District Reviews
Throughout my 13 years in the Fife School District, I have made many memories that will last a lifetime. I have never been surrounded by a better group of people who all care and support each other. If I am remembering correctly, I always wanted to go to school when I was younger. Once I got into middle school, I joined Fife's amazing music program that I have been a part of ever since. Also, once I reached the high school I joined the incredible theater department that host hundreds of people around the community. There has never been a time where I have felt like I could not get the help I need and it has caused me to succeed immensely throughout my school career. Overall, the Fife School District has made my time at school extraordinary, I would not want to be anywhere else!
The environment and community are wonderful. Everybody works together as one, huge family. However, the buildings are awfully old and crummy. There are constant gas leaks in all of the school buildings. There are mysterious smells from the pipes. There seems to be little to no air circulation. There was air conditioning blazing through our school in the middle of freezing Washington winter, because the heaters don't work.
The Fife School District is a great district if you want a small community-like surrounding. Due to its small size everyone knows everyone and feels like a family. Education is strong but the class to staff ratio could be stronger. I, a student who has been to multiple different districts would highly recommend this one due to the friendliness and politeness our students contain. Fife for life!
