My experience at Fenway was tough but it was definitely worth it. The work pushes you and challenges you to do well. All of the teachers are caring and eager to help you succeed in your academics. The classrooms aren't too big so you are able to develop a good relationship with your teachers and your peers as well. The teachers aren't solely there for academic needs either, you can also come and talk to them about personal topics. As a whole, the Fenway community is really welcoming and does a great job getting everybody involved some how. There isn't really anything I would decide to change about this school.

Attending Fenway was one of the best decisions I ever made! It was a small school where everyone knew of one another and along the way, everyone became family. I was able to build strong relationships with my teachers and build a strong foundation where even after I graduate, I know that I can always contact them in case I need anything. I was able to welcome them into my life and they were willing to welcome me into theirs. The school and the teachers supported us students whether it be protesting or games, they were always there for guidance and support. After I graduate and continue to succeed in life, I know that I have them to thanks and all the skills and resources they have given me.
My experience at Fenway High School has been better than any other school than I have been in. The teachers are always there to support you even after you graduate. Coming into Fenway my freshman year was terrible because I had to adjust to the fact that high school was going to be hard. However, I made friends that are still my friends until this very day that help each other out succeed to our best of our abilities. Sophomore year was even more difficult for me because I was used to the work at the end of freshman year and the teachers made us do a greater level of work. Junior year was one of my hardest years in school ever because the teachers warned me that I would be doing the most work. However, they stayed by my side and I got my work done to prove that I can be a senior. Now that I am a senior, I am proud to say that I am almost done and I am almost ready for college.
