2018 Alum here; enjoyed my time at Fitch for the most part. School is diverse I guess? In the high leveled AP classes however they were almost entirely white. Robotics and marching band were incredibly advanced and praised with multiple championships each. Joined the drama club and left almost immediately after due to horrible management and just a deplorable director. Had some horrible experiences in my senior year in the music department but that was apparently cleared up after I left. Food was okay. guidance department is an absolute joke. I requested a transcript to be sent to a scholarship two weeks in advance, dropped off all the necessary paperwork filled out, and they didn’t send it in time for the deadline. Had absolutely amazing science teachers and English teacher who all loved their subject and were very passionate, if not superb people. Made lots of friends throughout the years. Grew a lot as a person and a student.

The IB program at Fitch is amazing! All the teachers are wonderful and willing to work with you. I transferred into the school, and the process was practically seamless! Plus, there's so many great clubs to choose from. The only problem would be their allergy options, but that's a problem that basically every school has. Overall, Fitch is a great school.
Robert. E .Fitch is an excellent high school that has many resources and opportunities students can take advantage of. It is a very safe environment, with many friendly faces. The AP program is excellent, with teachers who know what they are talking about. But, teacher's interest and involvement in their student's lives is very limited. While the teachers know what they are teaching, there is often a large barrier between student and teacher which often creates a lack of understanding between the two parties. Diversity in the school is also somewhat average. But overall, from a parent's point of view, you really cannot get a school better than this.
