I was lucky to have a great experience as a student at Fenton High School. I felt that my teachers truly cared about my success, and they were always available if I needed help with assignments early before school. I was part of a team that greatly helped shape who I am today. I was at Fenton more than I was at home, and I always felt safe!
I like the diversity and students in Fenton. Our academics are very good, if you stay out of trouble you will be fine but if you get into trouble the teachers will never leave you alone. There is a big push for AP options and we have many fun and inclusive clubs and sports. Joining will make your school experience better. We do have helicopter teachers so they will make sure students aren't getting into trouble, however their methods and respect could be improved. There is a lot of during/before/after school help available for students as long as you are willing to look for it. We have a fairly small school with about 9 classes on the upper level.
