Graduate of here and have a couple ivy league degrees to boot. I think the Fair Lawn school system prepared me well for post-secondary education.

I don't think this school does a good job at all - the school might have been good some years ago, but it definitely is not anymore.

Based upon the spelling of some of the reviews, it's not as good as the reputation it has, and my experience is similar. If your child has special needs, the district does only the minimal job it is required to do, and often skirts the edges of the law. If your child is fortunate to not need support, everything is fine. It's not the school that I remember from my years here, I am disappointed in how my child has been left to flounder without support, while the other one is discouraged and bored. Wish I had the money for a private school!

When comparing it to my other friends who went to other schools i really learned to be thankful for FLHS. We offer so many more programs and activities than other local schools. Only problem is the very corrupt and favoritism riddled running rampant in the athletics. Rich parents taking coaches out to dinner to make teams and making 'dontations' SUSSER

Many students there think excellently of this school. It also won #1 in the marching band and the band system is just a number 1 itself, absolutely wonderful

If you send your child to FLHS solely looking for them to excel in sports, you've lost the whole idea of education. If a student studies hard, they will do well.

My child is a sophomore. This is a fantastic school, but if you are not an involved parent, you will not be aware of school happenings. A new principal started this year. Lots of AP classes offered, a wonderful music program, and sports galore. Your child will easily find one, if not more, extracurricular activity that will benefit him/her.

Some favoritism for certain students who make the school look good. Overall, a good education in the Honors/AP tracks that will prepare for college, and they are bringing the CP track to a higher quality.

An outstanding high school with many programs and academic options for kids! One of the greatest things about Fair Lawn High School is that it does not offer any study halls so that kids are not wasting time and rather maximizing their time in the day.

Fair Lawn schools is by far the worst school I have ever sent my child to. They have a terrible athletic department and a terrible education system. My child has not learned anything from that school. My child has been a good student until he attended that school.
