Two words...It's awesome! This is a wonderful place to learn! We have wonderful teachers and wonderful students! Go Comets!
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted January 4, 2008

I am a past student of Fatima High School and I would say as far as academics go Fatima has come some way since I graduated in 05. There are more dual-credit courses which are way more important than you realize when you are in high school. The one thing that I have noticed is the bad press that the school is getting. It seems to me that our school goes through this cycle every couple of years and all will pass but the school needs the community's support to make it through these trying times. I was an average student at Fatima High, but it isn't hard to be an excellent student. You think high school is hard and then you go on to college and realise...'if I only would have tried in high school.' In my experience there are NO teachers at Fatima who want to fail their students.

My experience over the past two years has been wonderful. There have been some wonderful changes occurring in the school as a whole. My daughter's needs have been met with the new pass period and through the guidance counselor. The other review is a bit harsh, as I do believe the parents involvement is wonderful, the new principal has done a great job, although there are a few issues he needs to work out. She is reluctant to rejoin the soccer team this year due to coaching issues...hopefully this can change. She was not thrilled about it last year, and really not ready for spring to arrive.

Fatima has some good concerned teachers, but it is failing my student because of the blue collar mindset of order and discipline. It is a sit down shut up and do meaningless worksheets school, preparing students for mindless factory jobs. Parents are involved with the school, but have little in put in what is being taught. The new principal is more concerned with order than learning.
