There is a great quality to the students who attend Fenwick resulting in an atmosphere for learning and succeeding. The tradition of excellence is all around the student at Fenwick, and it rubs off! Anyone who fails at capturing the results of a Fenwick education has not done the necessary work.

I have 2 kids that have attended Fenwick and I have seen a lot change over the years. On the good side most of the teachers and administration take an interest in the success of your child. On the bad side the cost is very expensive and they continue to bother you for additional money. On the sports side they have a newer AD and he is only interested in boys basketball and football, if your kid plays another sport he doesn’t care. I have seen them bring in (recruit) athletes that are not subject to the same rules as the other students. I believe the school is losing its identity when it comes to athletics and the overall student. I believe that Fenwick was once a great school, but now has just become average and forgot what made it great.
Fenwick High School encourages it students to meet and/or exceed expectations. This private Catholic Institution is known for its competitive academic curriculum. Fenwick isn't for everyone. The workload might be to demanding for students who aren't used to a tight schedule and difficult classroom material. I recommend not to take a lot AP classes if you can't handle the stress. A majority of Fenwick Students hardly sleep. Students aren't required to take P.E., but a majority of the students participate in one or multiple extra-curricular activities. The facility itself is divided into the new building and old building. Incoming freshman may have a difficult time adjusting to the complex hallways. The school goes under construction over the summer. Seniors are required to go on a Kairos retreat, and students are required to take a Theology class every year. The Friar Nation community is strong in its beliefs.
