Fairview High School Reviews

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!
I’ve had a good experience here despite some issues with bureaucracy. There’s a lot of bragging about how good our school is, but there is some lack in focus on the arts part of education. Although the academics is basically unrivaled and the athletics are moderately strong as well, the school fails to provide enough options for artistic students, nor enough time whether it is music, art, photography, drama, or anything of the sort. A lack of diversity also hits when you see a sea of mostly middle to upper-class white kids.
