Fairview is a great place! The only thing that is mediocre is funding for activities. The football team has an almost unlimited budget. They never do any fundraisers or anything. I am on the tennis team. We get a small budget and have to fundraise for most things. The football team has a severe losing streak, and other sports are very accomplished, but they seem to get all the money. Funny how that works? The arts, music, and theatre are even worse. That is my only complaint, everything else is good.

Fairview High is a nice smaller public school with excellent science, math, and art teachers, especially for Honors and AP Classes. There are proportionally more "spoiled" children in the school, but the dedicated teachers and the rest of the student population make the experience worth it. Extracurriculars, such as the Art Club and Robotics Team make the school family feeling complete for those with an open, determined mind. The food is very average for a U.S. school, so a packed lunch is better most of the time. But if you look beyond the typical activities and favorite teachers, you'll find hidden gems in the art, science, and mathematics avenues at this small school. In all, Fairview prepares one for college (if one takes it seriously) and offers a wonderful academic environment for those willing to explore outside the comfort zone.
Just graduated in June and I can honestly say I wouldn't have wanted to spend my high school years anywhere else. I made friendships there that will last me my whole life. The teachers were the nicest ones I've ever met. I never felt scared to ask any of them for help. I would go back and do it all over again, I had so much fun!
