I have been a student at Fairmont High School for three years. I have enjoyed this time and appreciate the wonderful teachers that have inspired me and that I have formed a connection with. One thing that I would like to see change is more teaching spot filled. There have been a few classes that wouldn't have a teacher because the school could find a replacement. Without a teacher, it makes the class harder to complete.

Fairmont High School has incredible resources for students who are passionate about their future and are willing to take initiative. It also offers a variety of extracurricular activities so that there is something available for everyone. Teachers at Fairmont do everything in their control to ensure the success of their students and make sure that their students are cared for and provided for beyond the classroom.
What I like about fairmont high school the most would be the incentive time as well as the staff. The school itself doesn't stand out but the kids do. There are so many unique personalities and diverse groups that when I take the time to observe them it's pretty special and heart warming. I wish our principal would just take the time out to see what we see in each other and to try and actually understand us because too many of us are misunderstood and stand alone but if we stand together it would be so lovely and fun.
