I've been attending J.A. Fair High School since I started my freshman year. Throughout my years here, I've had great experiences. For example, the academics range from whatever you decide you want to major in. There are various science courses such as physics, biology, and chemistry. There are even math courses such as geometry, algebra, and calculus (pre-AP, calculus AB, and calculus BC). And social study courses such U.S. history and world history. And the teachers help their students to get where they need to be. Toward success, that is. They are responsible for a student's learning development and they do their best. Also, our students are welcoming to any new race. Sports and school activities play a major role. At J.A. Fair High School, there is baseball, swimming, football, track & field, softball, and even bowling. To be honest, others criticize my school. I like it and I've been apart of it since freshman year. As a J.A. Fair War Eagle, I proudly represent my school.

Fair was a nice school. there were fights but mainly by underclassmen, if you choose the right crowd then school will be more laid back. I got to know my teachers and they genuinely care about me and their students. My AP Psychology teacher, Mrs. Holley, is probably the main teacher that i will remember. She always helped me out when i forgot an assignment, her class wasn't easy for me, but all the more she helped.
People judge our school by what they see in social media. But to be honest, we have teachers who wants to see you succeed, teachers who help you with any subject you need help on. If any student needed help in a subject they are failing, the school has an after school program that helps students catch up with their work and catch up in credits, or even get help. The one thing I would like to see a change in J.A. Fair are the class schedules. The 7 period schedule doesn't really help students learn, in my opinion. I believe the 4 block classes were better.
