I go to Fairdale High School, in Louisville Ky, and I am a junior. Though Fairdale may not have a good rep because of past violence and bad test scores, our principal, Brad Weston, is changing everything about our school. No longer are there fights everyday, they are now far and few. No more are there bad test scores, because he has created a more strict curriculum based upon how the students learn. The teachers seem to care more and so does the faculty. I've heard many people put my school down, and it genuinely bothers me because they do not know the changes Mr. Weston has made, nor do they know how we all, as a school, strive to make Fairdale top again. My advice to new students is to not become lazy and to be prepared for some serious learning. Fairdale will no longer be a name that people scrunch their faces at. Fairdale will be a school the students will be proud to graduate from; how do I know this? Simple, because I'm both excited and proud to be graduating from Fairdale.

I go to Fairdale and have had heared alot of people say fairdale is just a bunch of rednecks. Well people heard wrong Fairdale is a great school we strive to become better everday. The teachers are funny and awsome they all have a fun side to them. When you need help or just need to talk to someone all the staff can lend you a hand. I personaly love fairdale and it is a great school to be at.

People always underestimate Fairdale. They say it is not academically successful, and the kids have no manners. As a student at Fairdale I don t see how the school received a 2 out of 10 ranking. Last year we had eight governor scholars which is a big accomplishment, and this year we hope to have more. Overall judgment of Fairdale is wrong; there are hardly any fights, racial conflicts, and/or bullying. I hear people say that Fairdale is a bad school and it is not good enough for my kid. These are false statements. People don t give us a chance. Just wait a couple years and Fairdale will be a Top Dog for academic success. We are Getting the Advance Placement program and we are already a Magnet Career Academy.

Fairdale actually feels like a small town school on par with what you would see in a modern day making of the movie 'Hoosiers'. I played ball there, and saw parents in the stands who had not had children in the school in 30 years, thus is the community feel of FHS. The teachers usually start at Fairdale early in their careers and stay until the end of those careers. I went my freshman year to the big Traditional High School in Louisville, and encountered nothing but cliques and indifference from the staff the staff there unless your family was one of the powers that be in Louisville. Upon entering Fairdale for my sophomore year, I encountered nothing but small town values and an earnest interest in doing for the good for the student to help the community. I recommend being a Bulldog to anyone...

I was lucky I was in honors classes, so I think the teachers did try a little harder with us. But some teachers are just there to do a job and others don't care. But ONE teacher that stands out the most is MR.PHELPS he is the best teacher anyone could ever have he will help you in anyway possible.

This is probably one of the best kept secrets in the state! It is the best school for your child. My son goes there and he started out at another school in the area that didn't compare. the parental involment and caring attitudes are second to none. It is the last of the true community schools and the warmth is felt the second you walk through the dorrs. My son was welcomed with open arms and has been treated with nothing but respect and care. The other Jeff co. school he attended as a freshman was not as caring or as accademicaly challenging. You can tell a great school when the teachers actualy stay there. This is the case at this school. I rank it #1 in the county.
