The overall atmosphere, teachers, and students were better than most. I had a good experience here after a bad experience with schools in Rockdale County, and I am very glad I transferred. There are occasionally problems, but they are remedied very quickly. You should definitely attend this school if you want a good high school with everything you could want. I can guarantee you will feel safe, and teachers will work with you if you work with them and try. The sports and clubs are extremely fun, and club leaders and coaches will seek you out if they see you as someone they want! I myself am an A-B student.

Amazing teachers! Varied AP, Honors, and IB opportunities and numerous programs for the dedicated student. Sadly while, there is a percentage of hard working and invested students a lot of the student body is just uninterested in taking full advantage of such an amazing school.
My experience at Fayette County High School was good. I was involved in many clubs and extracurricular activities. Being at Fayette County High School taught me to be myself and I was able to find the confidence in me to accomplish my goals. What I would change about this school are the resources and definitely add more activities and clubs that would make a change to our community. Students deserve better books and resources that are not torn and should be up to date. Recently we were given laptops. These laptops have helped us, but it has also made this school a technology zone. The generation I grew up in was all about books. I have always learned from books and was able to focus more. With laptops, we do not get to read books and teachers do not teach as much or talk to the class. Besides the technology development, I would say my experience was a good one. From this school I have taken new experiences and new friendships that I will always remember.
