Fairview High School Reviews

I got a very good education from this school! Now, in my first year of college, I am years ahead of most of my peers in study skills, writing skills, and general knowledge, even within the honors program. However, Fairview has gotten a lot more strict with their students to a point beginning to verge on ridiculousness. Students have no free time to socialize with their peers or even walk around the campus to discover new things. Also, the past three faculty that the school has hired have been horrible at teaching and overall horrible with treating their students with respect.
Review Fairview High School
Personally, one of the key features of Fairview High School is its high levels of student involvement in a wide variety of student clubs and organizations. It is not uncommon at this school for students to join upwards of 5-6 clubs with some students even joining as many as 8-9 clubs. Additionally, being a somewhat small school, students are given a more personal relation with their teachers in the classroom environment, allowing better preparation for college and beyond.
Fairview High School is an academic focused school, every year the school holds an assembly to announce who within the school has been awarded scholarships and/or awards that will help them in their pursuit to jump-start their careers. After the recent violence that has been happening in schools across the country, our school has increased the security within the school with the installation of gates and hiring a police officer that patrols our campus. Our campus has never been a violent one, but our administrators aren't taking the chance of a freak accident happening. If I could change something about our school, it would be the amount of funding they put into our sports programs. In the past our school used to be the football powerhouse of the county, today we are still a decent team, but we could be great if the school administrators were to be more engaged with our sports programs. Overall, Fairview High School is an excellent school to be a part of.
