Like many schools, Fairhope High School is exactly what you make of it! If you seek an intellectual challenge, devoted teachers, and a true education, you will find success in the IB Program. If you are only looking to earn a diploma, you should be able to do so without a problem. While the administration does its best, motivation is primarily the responsibility of the student.

With the exception of the lack of ethnic/cultural diversity at Fairhope High School, I've had a great four experience. The academic standards and advanced placement courses have allowed me to excel, placing me in a great position for college acceptance!
Attending Fairhope High School has been an overall great experience for me. They offer a variety of classes in terms of difficulty that allow students to pick what best suits them. There are also several electives to choose from that allow students to pursue their interests outside of traditional academics. The faculty at Fairhope also contributed to my positive experience. The teachers are very hands-on and do their best to make sure their students succeed. Most offer hours before or after school for tutoring or homework help. The counselors make sure students are up to date with any kind of opportunity regarding volunteering, scholarships, clubs, etc. They are very thorough at their job and are dedicated to helping students thrive after high school. Fairhope is also a very fun school to attend because of the athletic hype. Pep rallys and game are always exciting and connect students together.
