As a senior at Fairdale High School whos been attending there all 4 years, im quite familiar with the academy. I enjoy the new and different facilties taht they provide. Such as their DUAL college ready programs, RISE, and their career ready programs. However, the staff/teachers/administration aren't very connected with the students and make the experience not all that worthwhile.

I really like the lessons Fairdale High School teaches. Not only do they teach academically but they also teach you how to become a good person.Like how to respect each other’s view and work together effectively. The teachers in fairdale are very humble. Very!
Fairdale High School can be seen as a very diverse school when it comes to different cultures and activities related to it. It provides an advanced learning environment in which each students follows the school's rules without hesitation. Teachers are very supportive and willing to help anytime.
