Fitch High School Reviews

The teachers - at least 95% of them - are highly knowledgeable, dedicated, and passionate about serving the best interests of their students. The building itself is in adequate but not great condition, having been built in the 1960's. A decent variety of curriculum is offered, though scheduling often appears to be an issue. The college readiness portion extends only so far as each individual student is willing to put the effort forth--Fitch has produced Ivy League scholars to less than spectacular alumni. The administration sometimes lacks quality communication or competency; but more often than not, I'd give them the benefit of the doubt in at least trying their best. Sports are far heavily favored and better funded - perhaps unnecessarily excessively - than any other extracurricular activity.

Though my time at Fitch High School isn't over, my experience over the last three years has been poor. Teachers and guidance counselors alike stand by while students are bullied and harassed. There are also some teachers who don't care if you were sick in the hospital for four days, because the homework was online so "you should have done it." If you ask them to review something you don't understand, 9/10 times, the answer will be no. The district spends obscene amounts of money on sports, but girls have to use the bathroom in a stall with no door. Ceiling tiles crumble and fall to the ground on a daily basis. This year, the school got rid of our library and media center, and now it's just a room for Study Hall. Never once have I felt that the entirety of the staff or administration at Fitch High School or the Austintown Local School District was entirely devoted to helping each and every one of its students.
I was a student at Austintown Fitch High School all four years of my high school experience. The teachers that I had classes with were very well prepared for lessons, and I learned a lot of life skills from them along with my education. I am so proud to be an alumnus of this high school!
