I have attended multiple schools and Fair Grove High School was one of the worst. I felt like I was not prepared for college and the subject matter was approximately one year behind my previous school. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

i have always felt that Fair Grove school has had in place a high standard for student success and attention to tutoring as needed as well. I have a son who is a senior who is currently attending and a son who graduated in 2010

It's a good school, there are great people and they offer a great one on one learning environment. However, it is a very small school environment, with small town kind of learning. I believe the overall learning suffers because of lack of diverse views.

My students transferred from a springfield school and they are learning so much more and have more 1 on 1 learning. It is a great school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
