Fayetteville-Manlius High School values the education of its kids, as well as the values that are incorporated in us. We hold assemblies that inform us about the harmfulness of drugs and also those that teach us about diversity. There is also an annual Dance Marathons that raises money for Camp Good Days, sending kids with cancer to a happy few days at camp. The teachers at school may be strict but nice and the students are very friendly. Everything is good other than the school food, which I think is really overpriced.

I've been in the Fayetteville-Manlius school district since my first day of Kindergarten. The district is often very highly regarded, but many issues are often not mentioned. For example, up to grade 8, the educators are often a mixed bag at best, and downright awful at worst. Being in a wealthy district, students also have the money to purchase illegal drugs, leading to a problem at the high school. High School at FM, however, is mostly a very positive experience, and one that I wouldn't trade for any other high school experience in the nation. Grades 9-12 are fantastic, and I'd highly recommend the high school.

Special education students, however, often don't have the same experience. I can personally attest that I have seen special ed. students treated unfairly and verbally abused. Though there are some fantastic people in FM's special ed. system, it's one to be cautious of.
Fayetteville Manlius has been, in my personal opinion, the best school district to attend in all of central New York. Not only do the students come out very prepared for both the immediate business work, and college, but the schools name is renown throughout a very wide region of New York. The staff is very well trained and professional, and the curriculum is among the best in the nation. The schools recourses and dedication to the students is shown in the competence of the guidance counselors as well as the sheer number of after school activities it offers. I would certainly recommend this school district to anyone who is considering the schools in the area. They will work hard to take care of either you or your child.
