Attending Fairview High School had granted me an excellent high school education! I would recommend this school because it provides many opportunities (clubs, internships, volunteer services, etc.) as well as necessary resources. The average high school freshman may have no clue what their passion is, but with Fairviews' College and Career Center, anyone can find their career path and the right school for them! The academics at Fairview are incredible and accurately prepare students for the real world. Overall, I love Fairview High School and am thankful for all that it has provided for me!

Fairview is great academically and athletically. Many students go on to top colleges and are well prepared, and many continue to play sports for top division schools. However, the school itself isn't as great. The school has gone through a recent renovation, which is great, however not at a great time. All the bathrooms but 2.5 are available for 2,300 students! Yikes! And they're not the best either, there is never toilet paper! And the parking is a mess. Don't buy a nice car for parking at school! But besides that, and the bad administration, FHS is a pretty fun place.
From attending a very small middle school Fairview was a great experience into meeting more people and having more freedom and being in a large environment. In Fairview it's "cool" to be involved with the school through sports, student government, and other clubs. With over 2,000 other kids you get to meet brand new people every year and make friends, many of which I have still kept in contact with after graduation. Fairview students are energetic people with lots of school spirit and lot of motivation to excel. Fairview offers both IB and AP courses taught by teachers that are accommodating and can work with your to make time for extra help when you ask for it. Although they offer their best help, in Fairview you are treated as an adult and are responsible for yourself and your own work that will teach you independence, time management, and organization. Go Knights!
