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.
When most American teenagers think about their high school, they picture girl drama, weird teachers, division between the "cool" kids and the nerds, or that science test they forgot to study for. Most likely, they are not thinking about the coffee shop the Fairbanks FCCLA runs that serves amazing cinnamon rolls, the incredible drama club, now working on "High School Musical," which is following their wonderful "Annie" performance, or the corn fields they pass on the way to their old building, now 60 years of age and practically falling apart. Fairbanks High School students are not only part of a unique farm-school environment, but they also create an original school culture that supports simple kindness, community service, and academic success, despite their worn, brick building falling apart at the seams.
