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.

Overall I enjoyed my experience at Fenton Senior High School, I was lucky enough to have fantastic teachers all four years. I know there are some couple teachers who students do not enjoy having but I was fortunate enough to never have their classes. From my personal experience, the college readiness was severely lacking as far as advisory in finances go so that sucks but not too shabby everywhere else.
After going to school here for four years, The experience hasn't been very bad. However, the school is losing money which limits our resources. Some students also collectively agree that the school spends too much money on their sports programs and not enough on education.
