Fayetteville High School, located in Fayetteville, AR, is a great school to attend! They offer many college class courses to get a jumpstart on your college career, which is important to me. They have recently added Virtal classes that are available to take. I take many PRE- AP and AP classes. I think it is important to get ahead as early on as possible. FHS provides the opportunity for that. There are many options for clubs and Sports as well. I am on the Fayetteville High School baseball team. I enjoy being a part of the Bulldog Baseball program. It allows me to have a good balance between academics and athletics. The only thing that could use some improvement at our school is the lunch menu. Other than that, Fayetteville High School is a privilege to attend.
Thank you

The teachers and staff at FHS are the best in the state by far! I moved from South Carolina, and the teachers at FHS are outstanding compared to those in South Carolina! The diversity at Fayetteville High School is also amazing as there are various clubs like the Word Language Club, Educators Rising club for future teachers, and more so students can see what they want to do after high school. Also, the AP classes offered at FHS are great along with the teachers that teach the classes. I can’t brag enough about the teachers and staff at FHS- they are life changers and I am proud to be attending such a prestigious and well-rounded school!
FHS is the best truly public high school experience you can find in Northwest Arkansas, if not the entire state. I've had some incredibly inspiring teachers enrich my experience greatly. For a public school, college prep at FHS is very impressive, especially within the AP department. Administration has gone through some significant changes even since I've been attending, but I think it's improving overall. Lots of programs are well-developed at FHS, and I've learned so much from being involved in AP classes as well as journalism and different clubs. Being a 7A school is something that can seem like a disadvantage, but really it provides for a more diverse student body and a refreshing mix of perspectives. FHS is the best place to be for Arkansas students who can't afford private education but still have ambitious ideas for their future.
