Fairhope High School Reviews
When one goes to Fairhope High School, they can expect to be safe and in good hands. The teaching faculty does an incredible job at giving the students every opportunity to learn their material, and our principal Jon Cardwell goes above and beyond to keep our school clean, healthy, and free of trouble. Our wonderful guidance counselors work endlessly to make sure that we are ready to transition from high school to college and that we encounter as few problems as possible along the way. While the food can be a hit or miss, our cafeteria staff are very hard working and always have a smile of their faces! Overall, Fairhope High School is a great place to learn and grow as a student.
This is a great school. Neither too large or too small. There are some amazing teachers and some that are not so great. Maybe better pay for teachers could attract more amazing teachers. Administrative staff is excellent and very caring for their students. The school practices safety drills including intrusions. There is almost something for everyone with theater, athletics and clubs. There could be more math and science activities and a show choir to make it a more competitive and well rounded school. Standard, AP and IB or higher level of classes are offered at Fairhope. Diversity among students is lacking with it being a predominantly all white school. Bullying is not a big problem. All in all, Fairhope offers a safe, friendly and challenging landscape for continuing education.
I would rate Fairhope High School as above average, but like everything else in the world, it is not perfect. There are a lot of really kind teachers and principles, as well as students and lunch ladies. The Art Wing of the school is my favorite part, from the posters and displays of students' artwork to the rainbow hallway filled with beautiful shades. However, there are some things I would change. For example, there are a few coaches teaching AP and advanced courses that should not be doing so. I feel pity for them, as most do it for money or get the class thrown on them, but I also feel like administration should hire teachers who are actually qualified for the job. If they taught regular classes, that would be different, but honors and AP courses should be taught by qualified, experienced teachers.
