As a former FitzHi student, who now teaches at FHS, I take issue with many of the negative reviews posted here. You can't get more out of something than you put into something. We've tried over the years to add extracurricular activies, many of which failed due to lack of student participation. For the price you pay, your kids get fed well. Maybe [parents] should concentrate on academic performance and teach your kids to respect rules (dress code) instead of abetting them in breaking rules. We still try to hold out for strong academics and discipline, but we're losing, as all schools are. It's sad.

I think that FHS is a great place to attend high school. The teachers work very hard to make sure that students are successful. The principal and other administrators including the counselors really seem to care about the students. I feel good about the quality of the education my child will recieve at FHS.

FHS has many problems. Some teachers do try their best but others are too complacent. They have been in their position too long. I myself have had to deal with bullying by, nonetheless, a teacher. Some teachers need not let their attitudes cross a certain line. They think as students we haven't any say in what happens at FHS. The school as well as the town places too big of an emphasis on sports rather than the academic accomplishments of the students. I believe the mindset of this town needs to change greatly. It is pointless to try and play up the football team if they're all failing and can't play. Not to mention the fact of drugs at FHS, something must be done to rid our schools of these problems. And, don't let the word out ahead of time when there's going to be a drug search.

FHS has many things to work on. First of all, the emphasis on sports is way too high. The main thing the school should be looking at is the academic performance of the child as an individual. Being a former student myself, I remember the problems I had there. I quit school because of the lack of discipline for the teachers themselves. If a student is doing something wrong, they are punished, but what about teachers...who punishes them. I will say that you have a few good teachers and other staff members, and good job the those few of you, but it is like everything else in Fitzgerald, people have been in their places too long and someone needs to come clean house.

being a former student i believe that the actually teaching technics need to be improved. favorablity needs to be demolished and give the students the grade they deserve regardless of the extra activities they are involved in. the way the classes are set is if you havent made the grade to get into higher learning classes then they stick in a lower class and dont watch your sucess therefore even if the child has improved they dont get into classes that challenge them they get stuck where they cant learn on there ability. overall they are more worried about what the school 'looks' like and not how the school performs. so when test scores come back low they fuss at the students for not doing all they can and in all acutallity the teachers arent either.

i think that fhs need some more work. There is alot of predjudice going on. They need to start giving our kids better lunch and stop letting them eat the same lunch everyday. I am tired of my kids coming home hungry. Please help us,and stop worring about the football team and dress code and focus on learning educational advancement, progression and acdemic status.

Its a good school when it comes to teachin the students but the dont push the students as the should but grades are pretty good few discipline problems and wonderful teachers. That try to get your child ready for the future and teach them how to be their self. If i had to pick a school in Ga. for my child to go to Fitz. high will be on my least.

A great high school where education is stressed. Some in the area want discipline and educational standards lowered, but the school continues to hold out against the pressure. Administration and staff is the greatest. Numerous academic honors as well as sport successes. 04 region champions in golf, boys tennis, boys and girls soccer, baseball, and competitive cheerleading.
