I have a student in FES who is doing fantastic. He is surrounded by caring and loving teachers and staff members who help with his every need. My husband is a Fouke alum and is currently working on his post graduate degree. I didn't now grow up in Fouke, but love the school district and all the dedicated education professionals that work there. GREAT SCHOOL!

I am a former graduate of Fouke High. My son completed his first 8 years there as well. I have since moved him to NE AR where we found the school curriculum to be just a bit behind Fouke in the basic classes. His new school is quiet a bit larger and he graduates this year, but he spent his first year just reviewing thing he had already learned at Fouke. The teachers and staff were strict but fair. Great school!

I had three chidren who graduated from Fouke High.they all three went on to receive college degrees.One is a Major in the Marine Corps,one works in the insurance field,and my stepdaughter is currently in medical school.The education they received at Fouke was more than adequate.They are well-rounded citizens enjoying the benefits of having been taught by many outstanding caring educators.No school is perfect,but Fouke offers above the average opportunities to students willing to strive to better themselves. Thank you, Dee Pond

I have a child at the Fouke Middle School and a child at the Elementary school. I went to this school as a child and the kids father did as well, and over the years I have found that Fouke schools pick out the kids they do like and don't like. They pick on the kids that they do not like! Not just the students but the staff as well. My child is picked on because of who his father is. This is not right! This has caused my child to hate school. What does a parent do about this. My children still attends this school because I have no choise, it hard to explain, but I shouldn't have to sell my home because the staff at the local schools are childish.
