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.

For being a public school, Fox Chapel holds its own against the nearby privates! I've loved my time at Fox Chapel, and I can't wait to finish out my senior year. The teachers, resources, and facilities really distinguish Fox Chapel from all the other schools in the Pittsburgh area and in Pennsylvania.
I have only ever gone to Fox Chapel. My experience has been wonderful and filled with caring teachers. However, it is not uncommon to come across a teacher that is a good person, but not a good teacher.
The support systems in place are very good. High school students often go to the elementary and middle schools to tutor the younger students. In the High School itself, the math help center is excellent.
The food from the school cafeteria is edible but by no means is it, gourmet.
The school is well funded, especially athletics and the technology departments.
