I've been in Fort Payne City Schools since kindergarten. It's very well put together, most of the time kept very clean. Overall the teachers are nice and care about your grades. Things I would like to see change...lunches...ACT readiness...and college readiness.....and to get the parents more involved.

The choice of clubs and activities is not very varied. Also, the restrictions on the students seem to be more for the image of the school rather than reducing distractions for students. It can feel suffocating at times.
Fort Payne High School is a great environment for students striving to achieve their greatest ambitions. The school builds a successful generation and sends them into the world ready to accomplish anything they work for.
