Fairview High School is a learning environment where I have had the privilege to call my superiors my greatest mentors. The staff makes a true effort to make the environment clean and efficient enough to benefit each student. From the janitors to the office staff- no one fails to ask how your day is or offer a friendly smile. If I could change one thing about my high school, it would ironically be the friendliness that I just spoke so highly of. Although I love the effort the faculty pours into us- sometimes they're more concerned about being friends to the students rather than superiors. The reality of the situation is that students misunderstand the bonds formed as means to disrespect authority. Recently, students have gotten into the habit of dropping proper titles and calling faculty by their last name, and sometimes only their first. Fixing this problem would only benefit the students who move into a workplace that demands respect, submission to authority and obedience.

Fairview High School is known as one of the best schools in Cullman County and I truly believe it is. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and our academic scores are through the roof. A few of the sports teams have struggled in the past but the 2015-2016 year we have really stepped up. There are so many clubs and organizations available with a variety of opportunities! I am proud to be a Fairview Aggie.
Awesome School. Everyone is treated equal. They is a club and activity for everyone that wants one. Teacher really care about what you learn and that you are prepared for the next stage in your life. Everyone seems to be interested in helping the high, low and middle class be productive citizens after graduation. If I had to offer one area in the needs improvement area it would be in the area of freshman orientation. Communication could improve on freshman knowing everything that is offer right from the start.
