Map of Fenger Academy High School address.

April 16, 2011
Fenger High School has been a turnaround school for two years and it is making great progress. Since the start of turnaround, Its attendance has increased by 10%, it's ACT average increased by nearly one point (far beyond the district average), they won an award for one of the highest increases in freshmen on track to graduation, its percent of students going to college has increased by 5%, and more students than ever before are involved in co-curricular activities and sports. Fenger is a rising star that will return to its glory years because of terrific students, a dedicated staff, and exactly the kind of hope that Waiting for Superman inspires.

Not a great school. Little to no parent support. I would not send my children here. If you have other options to send your child to another school, take them.

I think that Fenger Acadeny Highschool should have more learning in the class. The teachers should have a communication of disclipline and the class will be able to function and succeed in the class.
