Although I’ll only be a sophomore as of next year, I love the school. There’s great diversity, the teachers are amazing and great at their jobs, and there are a lot of opportunities for students to take either towards their career of choice or to meet new people. One thing I would change is the congestion in Central Unit (this unit is in the middle of all the other sections of the building). Going from class to class becomes difficult when a lot of students are pushing through trying to get to their classes first. But, there are ways to avoid this unit, like walking through the courtyard. So other than that, I love this school and can’t wait to finish my high school there!

Great school with a lot of fun. Athletics are amazing as we having a winning football team and basketball team. Watching football is amazing and the academics is even better, definitely recommend fairmont!
I had the pleasure of knowing a great deal of my teachers at Fairmont very personally. They were caring, attentive, and always expressed a desire to help myself and my classmates better ourselves. However, although I witnessed major changes in the involvement of our administrators in my time there, in my first few years at Fairmont, there were many incidents that occurred with underclassmen creating disruptions and problems during classes in which I felt that the administration did not make enough of an effort to get to the root of why those students acted out in the first place. Our administration was severely disconnected from our student body.
