Fyffe High School5

As a faculty member of Fyffe High School, I have seen the positive and negatives sides. The bottom line is that Fyffe is similar to a private school in that we know the students, and grow and change with them. Our school is well-protected by the local law enforcement. I do not feel threatened daily as others do. Students at this school are compassionate towards those with special needs. This school has a team spirit like no other, winners; however,in the classroom and the ball field! A vast majority of our students are winners in life to due their respect for others. All schools could use improvement; the main concern is a new high school building with a high school library and an auditorium with a tornado shelter for all students k-12 that is handicapped accessible. Funding needs to be provided for this. Our high school building is seventy six years old.
Fyffe School met 100% of goals set by the state and NCLB for the 2009-10 school year. We have a strong team of faculty, administrators and staff members. Fyffe was recognized by US News and World Report as one of Alabama's top 50 schools.
Well, Fyffe High School has many appealing aspects, but in opposition to those aspects the school can be very biased. I believe long hair on male students should be allowed and paddlings should not be used. However, saying that, I will in Fyffe's favor say that the educational system is average and the teachers are satisfactory. The school is truly in dire need of money and more equipment, therefore another discouraging aspect. Overall I believe the school to be slightly below my standards.
Fyffe Elementary School is a really good school. However as for the over school itself is in dire need of a new building that meets the needs of the students. The teachers are really great and they love the children. Fyffe is overall one of the better schools in the state
Fyffe is well rounded in teaching, discipline and the ahletic department. They have enough going on that your child can stay involved with extra things to stay out of trouble. We have three children ranging from 1st grade to 9th and we have always been very pleased.
