There are a handful of amazing teachers, but overall, the toxic community and complete dismissal of any intensive coursework means that Fordland alumni are often forced to enter a trade school due to lack of knowledge.

Despite the long history that me and Fordland have, I have really enjoyed my time here. The classes are all simplistic enough, but offer enough challenge for anyone willing to pursue them. The teachers are either the best you'll ever have or the absolute worst, there really is no in between. Thanks to the small class sizes, you get to know everybody really well, and there is plenty of opportunity to meet friends for life here. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience here.
The teachers at Fordland High School exceed the expectations of most high school students. They answer all questions, are knowledgeable in their certain position, become friends with the students, yet keep a professional stance, and never hesitate to help their students. Each teacher has their own grading system, but none of them are inappropriate. Each teacher thrives to make the most of each student, which is a very intriguing characteristic of Fordland High School.
