Fairley High School Reviews

I entered Fairley as a freshman. As a " baby " coming in to high school I had high expectations. I set my expectations too high. Fairley has an unjust discipline system, rude teachers and administrators, and extremely horrible food quality. Most high Have clubs, we have no clubs and hardly any student activities. As a student at this school I feel as if we need more involvement from health inspectors and the board of education.

In my opinion Fairley High school is so much better since Greendot has came and made us an ASD school. Every year they buy tour buses and pay the expenses for each student to visit a college. Each grade level visits a different college. Our principal greets us everyday at the door with a high five as he checks to see if we're in uniform. We take a class called advisory to get us ready for College, Leadership, and Life.
When i first attended Fairley HS i had the best time ever and still was able to have good grades. Fairley has changed so much when entering my 11th grade year. A lot of things we enjoyed has been taking away, classes are much different, activities aren't as fun as they were, our uniform has become more strict. Overall the only thing keeping fairley worth going to is the people thats been together since elementary and middle school.
