Fox Chapel Area High School Reviews
I love attending Fox Chapel! Compared to the small private school I attended previously FC nicely give you a small intimate feel in a large public school environment. The class sizes are fairly compact and the friends I have made here will hopefully be in my life many years past graduation. The food is great as well, though I recommend not getting the homemade pizza when it's served. Spicy chicken patty is definitely a crowd favorite! Overall, though it does have its problem like any school, Fox Chapel is a great high school to attend.
I consider myself very lucky to have been able to not only go to Fox Chapel's high school but also elementary and middle schools. Fox Chapel has great opportunities for all different kinds of students. Incredible art classes, business classes, and other areas that are helpful to future college students. Being that I am now going to be a sophomore in college, I credit a lot of my picking schools and my major to the classes, teachers, and experiences I had at FC!
