  • A terrible experience for any child that has an ounce of creativity. They are like prison wardens. If you complain about the bullying, they target your child even worse! Not the kids ...the coaches! How can they have a bullying policy when the coaches are the biggest offenders.

  • I have had family attending Fairhope High School since 1939. I think the school has great programs. My Daughters have enjoyed Fairhope since they transfered from Central Baldwin in 2004. Kids are rewarded for good behavior and grades, and are punished for foolishness or horseplay. So many kids today have no respect for others or any manners. I like the fact that the school system will notify parents of students punishments(because the kids wont) by phone call and written notices.
    I would like however to see more homework assignments posted for the classes but other wise GREAT GOING!
    AND THANKS

  • well i think that this school is a great learning environment. sure there are fights once in a while but you learn to deal. the teachers are great,the lunches are good and the location is perfect!! the only bad thing bout this school is break it is way to crowed and at lunch the line is way to long!! but other than those few things it is a great school to go to!

  • This school is miserable. The faculty especially administration is completely focused on discipline and respect to the point of destroying there relationship with students. Administration's Iron Fist comes down hard and smashes anyone who dares to step out of what the school (acting like its GOD or something) deems as "appropriate socially or otherwise". Parents who are considering sending students here know that your child will recieve a mediocre education, but the child will not have fun. You will pay out the rear to go along with this school's foolish, unfocused, medium quality academics. The teachers are more focused on relaxing and will take any chance they can to simply have a free day. The administration punishes children for foolishness ranging from the suspension of a boy for blowing his nose in his hands (quite descreetly might I add) to suspending a girl for wearing pigs on her socks. Parents, don't expect to get anywhere with administration they are hard-line jerks.
