I've had a very positive experience in this school system. Fisher is a close-knit community of about 1900 people. Our school serves as a hub of activity when in session. It is literally in use nearly every weeknight. It really is the center of our little town. The students will claim feeling very supported by the community, which is vital to an effective education experience. Community support is vital to the educators in our district as well. Teaching in a small, close-knit community like Fisher, allows the teachers to really get to know their students. We students are able to learn more about the teachers lives outside of school as well, to see them as people beyond their role as educators, which I believe adds to my learning experience. At Fisher High School I am encouraged to take an active roll in my learning and not just be spoon fed information. I am heading into my Senior year and would not want to be finishing up my High School career any where else!

Fisher is a very small town, which means the school is just as small. If you are an athlete like me, the athletic teams don’t cut (because we aren’t aloud to and that is also a pro and a con of being at a small school). With that said, it does have a political vibe. It’s all about your last name for sports so if you would like to pursue athletics I would strongly consider that fact. Acedemics are average but I would say Fisher is very easy going and adapts to your abilities. Just like every other school you have your fair share of teachers you will like and teachers you won’t.
Getting help for academics can be difficult for student athletes. They took away the option to get help in school during the last period, so now you have to come in before or after school. But the teachers are all very kind and considerate of the students.
