So, I just completed my freshmen and sophomore years at Fishers (will not be returning because of a move, nothing against the school) and the only word I can use to describe it is DIVERSE. There are students from all socio-economic backgrounds, and no matter who you are I feel you will be able to find a friend or a group of friends to identify with. Academically, this school really does offer so many opportunities, and values/rewards its top students fairly. There are definitely bad students who do drugs and walk around high, but typically everyone leaves each other to their own and you really have the chance to pave your own future. The teachers will help you when you need it, and are very innovative in their teaching methods. Some may be a bit too "innovative" and come off as disrespectful, but in the end you will definitely learn from most teachers in one way or another. There are so many clubs for anyone, and it is easy to create one if you'd like. I only did cross country and track, but as far as I know most sports are very open and accessible to all athletes (I.e. Not very elitist) The administration is really fantastic and cooperative, and has been patient with me in many respects. I just don't know what to say. I will miss this school so much, and they just added the new college and career center and a new gym, and I know the school will continue to grow and offer all opportunities that a student could want. By the way, in terms of tests and AP exams, this school does a FANTASTIC job of leading students to be successful in these respects. I feel this school has motivated me to be a better student, and I will carry the lessons I learned here onto my next school.

I am currently finishing my sophomore year of college. I am a Fishers High School graduate, and I just want others to know how great the school is. Throughout the past two years of college I have found myself to be more prepared than most of my friends. After many conversations with my friends from other high schools, I have realized how seriously FHS takes AP courses because my friends, after taking their AP courses, still weren't prepared for those subjects at a college level. I was an athlete all four years, and I was happy to see so many opportunities for the wide range of abilities that students have. I also noticed that most teachers were pretty reasonable when it came to any type of dispute such as grading, expectations, or anything else. There are even a few teachers that I am still in contact with today! I personally never witnessed any bullying, at least that I am aware of, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen, as it would at most any school. The school is rather large, my class was 600+ students, but when we were walking across the stage at graduation, there were very few names that I did not know. Overall, it's a great school with many opportunities for students.

One of my daughters graduated from Fishers last year and the other is a sophomore. We have had avery positive experience with FHS. The principal is fantastic and teachers are involved. Previous comments about teacher expectations being unclear are probably due to the student. There are very few duds. Academics are a strong focus. My daughter thinks college is easier than high school because of the great education she received at FHS. There are lots of AP classes and the IB program. There is TONS of school spirit, we even won the channel 13 Operation Football Spirit Award three years in a row. Students dress up in red/white and body paint and pack the student section. If you want to see your friends and neighbors, you will every Friday night at football and basketball games. Having been a volunteer coordinator, I can say that parents are very involved. Fishers is a great place to raise a family. The reason I am on this site is that we are considering a move for my husband's employment and the biggest draw-back to moving is that we don't want to leave this school and all of the opportunities it has provided for our kids. Should you move into this school's boundaries-absolutely!

The previous reviews are totally and completely inaccurate, I am freshman at Fishers High School, and I have never felt so happy and accepted in my whole life, the upper classmen are helpful and so are the teachers. the school itself is beautiful, out shinning and private or public school in the area. as for the controlling comment, you are allowed to leave during lunch, and drivers may sign them selves out with further notice. Best school I have ever attended, and probably the most organized

Very controlling. At time the expectations are difficult to know. The school is a closed campus, even for seniors. Also, seniors, even if 18, may not sign themselves out of school. Students are not permitted to leave the cafeteria during lunch. If you are a senior new to the state you will have to forfeit a day to take an Algera I End-of-Course assessment in addition an English 10 test. Also, the teachers expectations are difficult to know because many do not give rubrics for assignments and only vaguely convey their expectations, especially the English Department. The school has resources and is not a bad choice but Carmel or HSE could be a better choice. And, on a side note, the school officials are immature--tension and drama obviously exists between staff members (the Social Studies department), and many appear to never have grown up emotionally.

Fishers High School demands excellence and pushes their students to excel. At times that can feel overwhelming until that student goes to college and realizes that all the work and effort has finally paid off. FHS prepares their students for the rigors of college. I applaud them for offering my daughter a world class education!!

It is really hard for me to believe that tanyone would rate FHS poorly, like some on this site apparently have. Attitudes of the teachers? My child has never been in trouble so I wouldn't know what it is like to deal with that, but maybe that speaks more to the problems at home that caused the kids problems in the first place? Anyways, I have really enjoyed having my daughter attend FHS. The kids have great attitudes, the teachers are super enthusiastic, there is a lot of pride in being such a great school and the parents are very involved. Fishers has a great repuation and is a very safe community. Unlike where I went to school, my daughter doesn't see fights at school or a lot of racism and intolerance. She sees kids accepting of diversity, and she feels proud to go to school there. I am so happy we moved to Fishers and really glad that she attends FHS!

Fishers High School is more than what I would have expected out of high school. There are so many opportunities to get involved and the teachers and staff are so encouraging. I couldn't imagine having to attend a different school. The curriculum is challenging, but teachers are there to help you through as long as you ask. The school spirit is INCREDIBLE. I've never seen a school with so much pride! Overall, Fishers is top notch.

After my older son graduated from this school, I feel this school failed to meet my expectation. School has challenging programs, but teachers are not capable to have students successes academically. I compared this high school and other high schools near by. I am worried about my younger son. I am thinking about moving out.

I am ABSOLUTELY, VERY disappointed in this school! I think the staff and are very negative and immature and do not handle "simple issues" in a proper way. No bullying is the motto they live by, until it's time to reprimand a student for using the word "fruitcake", then there is no boundaries! I have pulled my son from this school today after repeatedly dealing with minor issues that the staff continues to be more concerned with than actual "education"! We will not be returning to this school, and that is the best decision I EVER could have made!!

I am simply DISAPPOINTED in this school, and would not EVER allow my child or children to attend this joke of a school!! If you can, and you are serious about your child(s) education, attend a different school system!!

Not happy at all with this school, and will not allow the remainder of my children to attend this school after one child dealt with a lot of disturbing issues within this school system!

I absolutely love this school! The curriculum is challenging, the teachers engaging and the students have tons of opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities. An overall great school!

Having recently graduated from Fishers High School, I love this high school and cannot imagine having gone anywhere else. The principal is the most involved principal I have ever met. During passing periods he will be out in the hallway talking to students or in the cafeteria during lunch periods trying to get to know his students and asking for their involvement in the school. While I have read several of the comments on this school about how parents are not clear on teacher expectations and such, the only reason that could be is because of their kids not telling them. In every single class I took at this school, I knew the expectations and teachers encouraged us to meet them. There are so many activities to participate in, so if they get involved, students will surely have a wonderful high school experience.

The faculty and staff have negative attitudes and seem to have issues treating adults as adults. One seems to be misconstrued with the law stating 18 year olds as legal adults- Have a rough time respecting others.

We were very disappointed with the school and hoped for a better experience. After a year our son decided to go someplace else. The teachers were less than helpful and seemed unable to convey their expectations to the students in general. Thankfully, things are great at the new school.

It seems a little lacking in school spirit and, in our case, it's difficult to determine what the teachers expectations are. When giving a low grade, it would be helpful for the child to know how they can improve.

The building is very modern, school is nicely equipped with materials. Some of the teaching staff is not that great though, through my experiences. :)
