While FM High School seems like a good school on the surface, it has several issues underneath. It has an incredibly competitive atmosphere, where if you're not in honors classes, you're considered a failure. Also, they don't care about you unless you're either a genius or on a sports team. We have an unreasonably high amount of homework, which has a negative impact on students' health. Next, the majority of students don't have a lunch. They give us a "choice" of either a lunch or a class that we are actually interested in. Finally, as others have said, there is a lack of diversity at the school, but it also goes much deeper than that. There is a hidden racism issue. Students of color are discriminated against in sports, and also bullied by their caucasian peers. The administration ignores that this is happening, and sometimes even makes it worse.

The only major issue I had was that if I didn't go out of my way to explain a problem I was having with the coursework or something in my home life that was hindering my performance, the staff could often not think of it. I think that often this would happen because the staff would be focussed on the seniors over the rest of the school. For the most part, though, I could find teachers and counselors that cared about how I was doing and tried to help make the challenges of school less cumbersome where they could. It was rather difficult for the semesters that I could not find that understanding from others. The classes themselves set me up very well for college, even the regents level courses.
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.
