It was overall not a bad experience, the teachers were great if you took rigorous courses. However some regular classes were overbearing at times. Students would over power the teacher most of the time which inhibit them to teach. Besides that, it offered great clubs that allowed plenty of opportunities to become active in the community and volunteer and it was a lot of fun.

Fayette County High School is in a rural area, very much like family. Great academics, tons of resources at your fingertips to get you college ready. Excellent guidance counselor. Advanced placement classes and dual Enrollment to Bevill State Community College.
My experience at FCHS has been great. I've grown so much in the past four years here. There's nothing like being apart of a small town high school. I looked forward to all of the Friday night football and all of the basketball games as well. FCHS has the best fans in Alabama. We support each other. When we've had tragedies involving one of our students, FCHS always came together and prayed and that is what I loved most about FCHS. We take care of each other. I'm going to miss being a student here.
