Fairhaven High School Reviews

113 reviews
All Categories
Fairhaven High has a lot of character, history and healthy learning space to offer its students and faculty. Most all of the teachers are passionate about their subject field, and are excited to share what they know with the students. A lot of the teachers have a positive attitude and are there for the students when they need a little help. School related or not. Some of the rules set by administration and the higher ups could stand to change. Some of them don't seem to have a purpose or actual reason why they should be enforced. I think school lunches could also use some work. Some days the students are offered a nice meal. On other days you can find a mix of leftovers slopped on top of a crust and it's called pizza. Overall I think Fairhaven High has a lot to offer its students and it offers a creative, healthy learning environment if the students are willing to work for their education.

The environment at Fairhaven High School is very welcoming and friendly. There are various amounts of opportunities to participate in clubs/ activities and sports. Many of the teachers and administration are kind and helpful when you need assistance. FHS is a great place to be. Guidance and safety is key here and as a student, I feel safe in the environment.
This school offers amazing opportunities for students to pursue their dreams. There are an abundant of activities to get involved in. There's something for everyone; From the thespian to the quarterback. There's a club for anyone; from the math team, to the book club, to the art club, to the jazz band.
