Fox Chapel Area School District Reviews
Music department couldn't be better. I'm very fortunate to have the quality of music education and opportunities we have at Fox Chapel, although it's a shame the school doesn't fund music the way they fund sports. It's all on the parents and fundraising, which isn't fair to those who are economically disadvantaged. Disproportunately few of those in Fox Chapel though. Excellent selection of AP classes. I think I'll be very well prepared for college. Many colleges visit here, including my first choice! More interesting electives here than you could possibly fit in your schedule. Small class sizes. I think there's probably something here for everyone.
I liked the school. I have been through the entire fox chapel system and it has been a pretty great journey. The teachers that I have had have all been pretty solid with the exception of a few teachers. The school culture is only alright as there is a certain stereotypical popular kid that excels in this school system. It's sports dominate in some sense but there are certain sports within the fox chapel system that truly dominate (Tennis, soccer and golf). The parental influence in fox chapel is pretty great as PTA involvement within the system is quite prevalent. Clubs and other such activities within the fox chapel community have always been amazing from recreational youth basketball to busking club, the students have opportunity to join and participate in these amazing activities.
My time at Fox Chapel was a good one. The things I would have complained about back when I was in school I can see now were my own fault. The teachers cared and wanted you to succeed. They would do anything to help a student be better. My favorite part of FC was the tech ed department. I had great fun and learned alot taking woodshop, electronics and communications. The teachers in those departments care about what they are doing and wanted the kids to take things away from the classes. If I had the option, I would definitely go back.
