Fauquier High School Reviews

239 reviews
All Categories
Students are constantly looked down apon by the administratio, rude and uninterested in actually helping you. They completely failed during a tornado warning. Students were still standing above ground in the main building has the storm past. I had a teacher that did not allow us to exit the building for a fire drill because "it would take too long." I had to have a note anywhere I went, even the restroom. Admin. Constantly hassled students expected the worst. Teachers cram for sols and pressure students to do well so they don't lose acredidation "again" I would have planned for an early graduation if it weren't for the great counselors and the dedicated marketing department.

Fauquier High has a great campus and great teachers for every subject. It offers a variety of classes, whether it be AP, Dual Enrollment, Honors, CTE, Art, Literature, or more. The faculty is friendly and supportive and the school has a positive environment. It also allows you to partake in the local Governor's School, Mountain Vista for those students aspiring to work within the STEM field.
Going to Fauquier High School was very enjoyable. While some aspects of the older buildings can be improved upon, the courses offered and options given to students more than make up for it. The school, with its officers, are very safe and never once have I genuinely feared for my safety at the facility.
