South Fayette Township School District Reviews
Review South Fayette Township School District
The high school teachers are outstanding. They exhibit very adaptive teaching strategies that have the potential to appeal to the entire spectrum of learners. However, the administration is very detached from the functions inside the classroom-- the entire focus of the administration is the numbers that are displayed next to the school's name in catalogues. The administration (namely the superintendent and principals) are most concerned with projecting exponential statistics with regard to students' performances and accomplishments. They pride themselves on the rigor and intensity of the learning environment and workload, which is sometimes detrimental to a student's sense of worth or interpretation of his/her performance. I must say that the teaching staff really compensates for the administration.
Some things that I liked about South Fayette was that the teachers were very helpful and willing to make you succeed. The faculty really pushed themselves everyday to make sure that their students were successful in their long-term efforts and goals. One thing I would like to see change at South Fayette would be offering more classes based around college courses. This would be one of my suggestions just so that students in high school can get a better understanding of what some majors are actually like in college. This is a great school and I am proud to be an alumni from this school district. People know what South Fayette is around the State, and know what kind of prestige it holds with its higher level academics.
I believe South Fayette does a fantastic job of preparing its students for college in a general sense, and in certain areas. The focus on STEM and business fields is obvious, though, and frustrating for those who are not interested. It is very difficult to find an advisor to start a new club, so there should be an incentive for teachers to do so. The LGBQTIA+ climate among the students is rather poor, and discouragement on the administrative level is not helpful there.
