Fallston High School Reviews

I had an overwhelmingly positive high school experience. Most of my classes were at least somewhat interesting and most of my teachers were genuine in their interactions with students and they could sufficiently teach their respective subjects. A very friendly atmosphere exists among students, and clubs and sports are active and adept. Some of the teachers were also truly exceptional, either in teaching ability, personality, or both (Ex. G. Taylor, J. Grant, V. Saxon, R. Jones, B. White, C. McLeod), and made every class a truly informative and entertaining experience.

Great school overall--sufficiently prepares you for AP exams but doesn't emphasize enough on how useful AP credit actually is for getting a head start in college.

The teachers are outstanding, many have had professions and then became teachers, they are dedicated and focused on the students. The students show their "Cougar Nation" school spirit in the many activities including sports, clubs, dress up days. Our High School rates very high on the academic evaluations. Our students are well behaved. The building is not the best since it is over 30 years old. But there are many technology resources available. I love Fallston High School.
Most of the teachers are great, they really care about the students educations. The building it’s self is run down, there’s very little windows, and there’s “cheese grater” walls that hurt when a student bumps into it. The administration cares a lot about the schools reputation but most of the time they like to forget that there are programs other than just sports. Lastly, the student body gets a long of the most part, there’s a lot of cliques. There’s a fight maybe twice a year, a couple bad things happen hear and there but relatively it’s a good school to go to.
