I graduated from Fayette-Ware in 2017.In my senior year, we had a guidance counselor,Mrs. McGuire really push use to be the best in everything we did. Mrs.McGuire encourage us to study hard for the ACT TEST, senior projects,final exams and other assignments. The teachers that worked with her, made a difference. There are not a lot of teachers will to work or teach the students. The administration could be stronger. The food is not good and the building is very old and not in good shape. They need to build a new high school. Fayette-Ware needs an upgrade in every aspect there is.

Fayette Ware Comprehensive High School will be one of the best schools to go to. They have wonderful staff members and actually cares about students and feelings and educations. The school is not a private school this is a type of school that let each student voice be heard no matter race you are. Fayette Ware Comprehensive High school have been known for the best sports and etc. Becoming a wildcat would and could be the best decision anyone has ever made. Once a wildcat, will always be a wildcat we will never turn back.
My experience at Fayette ware was overall satisfying... I think they should offer more vocational programs for students who are looking to get more experience throughout their future careers. The sports have been improving over the last few years which will offfer more students scholarships and improve atheletic ability. One issue is the administration, each year there is always somebody new and that doesn’t set very well with students having to adapt to new rules and consequences.
