Fox Chapel Area School District Reviews

Fox Chapel is known for being a great school. They have won numerous awards for their countless programs and have been praised for their high results on standardized tests. The music program especially is outstanding. The teachers their truly love and care about their students and push them to make an impact with their music. But one thing this school lacks is diversity. There is only one black teacher, and she was hired in the past year. The schools fails to recognize the racism within its system and the students are the ones who have pointed it out. Behind all of the awards and the praise Fox Chapel is a breeding ground for ignorant and arrogant fools.

This school is amazing. The teachers are so good. I have had a good relationship with all my teachers. I love the music programs! We are constantly doing fun things at school. The school is very safe, and i feel safe.
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.
