My experience at Fairmont was pretty average some of the teachers are very passionate about what they do and also take the time to speak one on one with a student if they need help. Some classes will not have a teacher so a permanent substitute will be in there and it’s harder to pass the class but most of the time there will be a teacher in there. The school is primarily African American but there are also lots of Native Americans too. Football and Basketball players often times get special treatment and administrators Will look the other way for their star players to avoid discipline. The lunch staff is very kind and outgoing about serving lunch to students. Assistant Principals usually only stay a couple of years before they move to a another school. The counselor Miss Tonya Locklear is very nice and will cooperate and help students when needed. College advisor Mr. Sun takes the time to sit down and guide students through their college applications.
I liked Fairmont because it was the closest school to my house. Its where I met all my friends. A few of my favorite teachers are there. I know they're doing what they can with the money they have, as Robeson county isn't exactly the richest place in the world.
