Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
I get bullied all the time and suffer in silence! There is no anti-bullying talks at all and some of these students seem to not even know what bullying is and they do it to others!!!!

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
There are many different levels of classes for all abilities.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
It's not very effective. Students still bully and trash talk Boulder High (my neighbourhood school) and it annoys me and the other kids who live near Boulder high

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
I get bullied ALL THE FREAKING TIME by sophomores probably because I'm a freshman (not respect or compassion)! In my PIB Biology class, this sophomore took credit FOR ALL MY WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's not integrity! That sophomore also bullied me so badly and called me racist names and made me want to die in a ditch.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some teachers I am in their class and sleep and learn nothing (like PIB Government). Others, I actually learn stuff. Just hope you get good teachers.

The academics are just fine (teachers are supportive, but they have too many students so it's hard to be "close" with a particular teacher. Homework load for me is not very huge), but some of the upperclassmen are REALLY REALLY unwelcoming and make fun of the freshman. I'm in 3 sophomore classes, and in one of them particularly (pre IB Biology), some of the sophomores are really really mean and bully the "unpopular" freshman. Also, with student council and some stuff, it is run by most of the more "popular" kids (who can be such jerks at times). The building is like a prison, too. The hallways are too narrow.

My child has been at this school for 2 years, has a very high GPA, takes IB/AP classes, has many friends, is in sports, all kinds of clubs and is very involved and motivated in general. student likes FHS mainly because friends go there and excels in spite of many obstacles, culture and challenges at this school. experience has been that the school climate in general is not so great. Very competitive, lack of transparency- e.g., for some club/activity selection seems to be arbitrarily exclusive, without transparency, and no due process. Teachers and counselors are overloaded, don't respond to emails or messages, and students and parents have to be very persistent to get an answer which leads to perception that lack of accountability, time or not caring or some combo. staff don't admit mistakes or like to be challenged, blame stuents .Students don't have much time to be persistent due to heavy load so concerns are dropped. Have second guessed selecting FHS, others say diff h.s. in the area get to know their students. school prepares for life because it's ruthless, not fair. good news is, if survive, can handle most anything. mostly school highly rated bc of high potential students



- a
Great School, but I feel as though their are schools with better environments and programs in this district.

I am so glad that I went to this school. It was an amazing experience and prepared me very well for college. I am currently an elementary school teacher in a different district and wish that lived in Boulder so my kids could attend this school. Fairview's teachers were always encouraging me to follow my dreams and worked tirelessly to make sure I understood the curriculum. The choir program was outstanding and extremely fun to be a part of. I would not change my high school experience for anything. If you are looking for a great, high performing school with many different activities, clubs and classes then Fairview is a great choice.



- a
Fairview is interested in their sports programs and only students who fit their mold. The administration want kids who don't rock the boat and toe the line. Their counselors with a few exceptions are under motivated and not creative. Fairview has some really incredible teachers who are working against an administration that only seems to care about performance and not students. So if your student has no issues, loves homework and is just another face in the crowd they will do fine. If your student questions things, is an alternative learner and wants to have any social interaction with people not into their clique, then another school might be a better fit.
