Fife School District Reviews

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!

I have been in the Fife School District for 11 years, since the second half of kindergarten, and I have to say that the schools and staff are consistent through each grade and each school until you reach the high school where the staff is 25% excellent and 65% average to poor. Some of the teachers at the high school single you out if you don't have the same belief's as them or some will show favoritism to certain students and forget that they have a whole class to teach and not that one student. Overall I believe that the Fife School District is outstanding until you reach the high school.
Being a lifelong member of the Fife family has truly been an unforgettable experience. My Fife friends have been along with me on my academic journey since day one, while at the same time providing me with needed support and encouragement that could only come from Fife District staff and teacher's powerful influence on its students. I believe that Fife has truly prepared me to the fullest extent with the knowledge, scholarly skills and a determined mindset that will lead me on to bigger and better things in the future. Academic progress and encouragement has had a major influence on how I have developed as both a student and a young woman throughout my years of schooling. The Fife District is like a great big family who in which will never provide anything less than stellar service for the hard working and rapidly developing students in which it has received.
