I moved to Fairbanks in the 7th grade, which was pretty intimidating going from 4 kids in my class to 90, but Fairbanks did a great job at making me feel welcome. I have enjoyed my time at Fairbanks, but there are definite improvements that could be made. Our science department is not much of a science department at all, in all of my science classes I feel like I have not been properly taught the material, which will harm me in the future as I plan to go into a stem field. The school is also an old school and needs some major repairs, being that one of my fondest memories from there is a water heater exploding in one of my classes and completely soaking the floor. Fairbanks is not a diverse school, it is a small school in a country region where it is affectionately called "Farmbanks" due to the kids attending. However, Fairbanks does have some bright spots with the close staff to student ratios in order to get individual help and there is a good History and English program.

I am proud to say that the teachers at my school are some of the best any student could ask for. While being very intelligent, they seek to make their knowledge understandable by students. Overall, classroom experiences are not only comfortable and educational, but alao engaging. Even a fact based class can be enjoyable! My favorite part about my teachers is how they actually genuinely care about their students. A teenager isn't just a pupil to teach in class and forget about afterwards. Teachers at Fairbanks High School enjoy conversing with students and getting to know more about their lives, activities, and ideas. I used to be homeschooled, and a huge part of how easy my transition into public school was how kind and caring my teachers are.
At Fairbanks, the exceed expectations with how great the teachers and atmosphere is for the small package it comes in. The budget is smaller than other schools which hinders Fairbanks' ability to update things such as lockers and parking lots but they accel in all ways that are possible for them. The people of the community is what makes Fairbanks great, with the addition of modern resources and facilities, the school would be ideal.
