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.

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!
I liked the multitude of unique opportunities that Fayetteville High School East provided for me. The entire campus is modern, clean, and a great learning environment that I feel safe in. Most of the teachers at FHS are good teachers that help each and every student learn to the best of their abilities. There is a large diversity of students throughout the school which eliminates most segregation. I would like to see changes at FHS that relate to drugs and alcohol. There is a small drug problem that I saw occur at the school and in my classrooms, which takes a toll on other students learning time. My four years at Fayetteville High School overall was a pleasant and successful experience.
