Fort Payne City Schools Reviews
I enjoyed that Fort Payne High School was easy to make good grade at. Please pack your kids lunch! The food is terrible. Overall there is a diversity among student, but not teachers. The teacher race ratio is mainly white. FPHS is also not very liberal.
During my time in Fort Payne City Schools, I have learned so much about myself and others. One factor I truly love about my school system are its teachers. They are such encouraging people and have really transformed me into a successful and determined student. The teachers have not only taught me everything there is to know about academics but also how to be a better person and how to strive for excellence. On the other hand, the food in the school system is not so excellent. While I do believe that food should be nutritious and good for the body, it also shouldn't taste bad. What our school system hasn't quite figured out is that healthy foods can also taste good. If I were to change something about my school, it would be what was served in our lunchrooms. I truly do love my school and am proud to say that I am a Fort Payne Wildcat.
I played several sports at Fort Payne. I enjoyed most of the experiences and equipment was usually up to date. School clubs and activities were usually enjoyable. I had a really good graduating class so that made everything better. I like the progress that Fort Payne has made in adapting to technology and incorporating it into the classroom. They have a TV program where students can develop skills for careers in television and visual arts.
