Fairmont Junior/Senior High School Reviews
I love going to school here. The administration is always checking in on ways to improve the school, what works, and what isn't working. The school system is meant to help every child that walks through the doors. Academic checks are frequent to make sure the students are following and keeping up grades. Every week on Thursday, we have SOAR time which is time for students to go see teachers in classes they are struggling in or maybe need extra help in. This time is really helpful for the majority of the school is multi-sport athletes and might miss school for sporting events. SOAR time can be used to help catch up and is helpful to have during the school day since most students have practices after school and can't always meet with a teacher.
As a small town school, I wasn't sure what to expect when I first got there. I can safely say that this high school is good place to get an education leading into college, with good teachers and reasonable workloads. I do have several complaints regarding their implementation of new technologies being inefficient, favoritism among teachers, iffy math and science teachers, and staff oversight which harms student clubs. Still, some of these complaints might be more personal than universal, and if we're focusing on just the education part of the school, it's really strong.
I feel that I did not receive a top notch education. I am leaving the school with very little information about writing college level essays or public speaking skills. I feel that my school did not give what I needed to be successful in life. However, my school does have many opportunities to help us with our classes when we are struggling. They have a math and science center and a writing center. They are all very helpful. Teachers are also very flexible with students coming in and receiving help from them. They also provide great help for the ACT test. My school also has involved principals. They are willing to listen to the students' ideas and make them reality. They believe that the school is for the students.
