As a student at East Fairmont High School, all the staffs, teachers, and friends are the ones that bring help when I need help and give me advice on difficult situations. Teachers are especially supportive when I need help with homework, tests, ACT, or SAT. They are also very friendly and kind. When I first got into this school, everything seems so new and different that I even have fears about how would I do well. Turns out, teachers are not as strict as I thought but they are very loving and understanding people. Different teachers have different teaching styles ranging from notes, PowerPoint, or explanations. Overall, East Fairmont High School is a great school for education and communication.

East Fairmont High School is overall a very good school. The faculty and staff are very caring however the administrators tend to not follow through with their actions. The teachers and administration are very supportive and the students are very involved. The school strives for excellence and is rather safe, but lacks precautionary security. I have had a great experience at East Fairmont and would recommend it to incoming families.
I would like to see in increase in graduates. This school is a great school for those interested in the arts, as they have a great choral program and a phenomenal band program! Loved going here for four years!
