Fenton Senior High School Reviews

I really enjoyed block scheduling which I experienced throughout all four years of my high school career. The alternating A & B day classes provided flexibility with homework and a more organized learning experience. Technology in the school is growing also, with many new digital displays in certain classrooms and easily accessible laptops for online work. I wish that Fenton High would however focus on making a streamline decision on how its curriculum will line up with online resources. While many teachers utilize Google classroom for their courses, its not mandatory leading to many other teachers choosing different ways causing confusion and inconvenience. A great experience overall though, highly suggest it for a diverse and productive high school experience.

Most teachers were fair grading wise, some were biased through the years. Many classes were offered, although I believe more could be available within the science department. Not only were they excellent for academia, they were also well known for their great sports teams. Staff pushes students towards succeeding and will offer any assistance needed.
the principal does not interact with the students. In fact, he believes the kids all lie. The principle does not return emails. He will not set up appointments with parents to discuss problems. Teachers make kids go to area restaurants and buy food for fund raising and the kids must bring in a receipt for a grade. This is "pay for grades" which is not legal in the state of Michigan. WE had a meeting with the teacher, the principal and the acting superintendent last year and nothing has changed. Athletes get special privileges and are treated differently than the other students, even the top GPA earners. Teachers are lazy - show movies and complain to the students about pay and conditions. The student bathrooms are never stocked with toilet paper or paper towels. Office staff is rude even to parents. Do not recommend this school.
