Fayetteville High School a world on fire to anyone who doesn't fit into a high school cliche. From the jocks to the quiz bowl teams, they view the school as wonderful or even fun due solely to the treatment they receive. Whether it be with extended time for assignments or help out of class there is an unfair advantage to attending extracurriculars. As the nobody, who is threatened by bullying just for eating alone, the school can seem like a nightmare. Traversing enormous student infested hallways avoiding eye contact. Sidestepping the basketball star, who would rather walk over than around you. Just to sit through another boring lecture because of a scheduling error that the counselors wouldn't fix. Struggling as you watch someone who you know copied the smart kid ́s homework pass with flying colors. This may not be unique to myself but that doesn't mean it should continue unimpeded. My voice is quiet but not alone, just the first to speak up about the minority.

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!
