I've been at J A Fair since my freshmen year, I'm currently a senior. My time here has been fairly okay. Everyone usually does their own thing. The students aren't really involved and there's really no school spirit. The teachers are great, there are a couple who are really just here for the check. The curriculum is really flexible and could be better. I really do enjoy the support I receive from the counselor and some of the teachers. They will push me to do better and will present me with opportunities so I won't miss out. They give me great advice for my future and what to do after high school. I still think it's a great school. It's big enough to blend in but small enough to easily stand out.

I’ve been attending J.A. Fair since freshman year now, this school has taught me what’s its like out there in the world, i wouldn’t have it any other way, J.A. Fair is my home and my home is J.A. Fair!
As a senior who has been attending Ja Fair since my ninth grade year. I believe it is a wonderful school with outstanding teachers who go above and beyond to help their students succeed. We have amazing programs such as Student council, FCCLA, Jag and Marketing, to give us a chance to branch outside of our environment and that gives a great experience for networking advances and opportunities. I am proud to be In the graduating class of 2019 at Ja Fair high school.
