I just came from Nigeria, and got registered newly, and it's so far better than all the schools i've been to,

I started Fike with straight A's but the overall lackluster of the school seemed to be unmotivating. Kids of parents who were staff or knew staff were always placed on a pedestal. They received extra attention and care. The others were not treated with the same open arms.

Not the worst high school I could have attended but certainly not the best in education.

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

I graduated from Fike a few years ago. I have to say it average all the way across the board. There are a handful of teachers that are great but most don't seem to care if you succeed or not. There is nothing spectacular about Fike. I do not believe it is the worst school but if you are looking for a school that is anything above average, I would not recommend it. If I were a mother, I would choose a different school. Fike is not going to reach out and help your child in any special fashion, they will cater to some kids over others. I was a quiet kid and seemed to almost fall through the cracks at Fike. If you do not have a choice, it is definitely not the worst option in education...but certainly not breaking any records

Fike is a good school that just needs some help with upgrading. Fike has a great band program and a wonderful director. They do need new intsterments and uniforms. I am a Band Mom and believe this money could help the band in wonderful ways.

This school as a great example of North Carolina having one of the most atrocious education systems in the United States. The teachers care about conformity and students following boorish rules than on the quality of their education. Very few of the teachers here actually show any enthusiasm for teaching. Regarding the quality of the average classes I would rank it at 45%. This school is merely an indoctrination center, they teach you to be just smart enough to pass the test but just dumb enough to think getting a good grade means you're smart. I'm lucky I started my education in a private school and spent the early portion of my school life in Broward County Public Schools, an education system that is one of the best in the country. If you value your children's education enroll them in a private school.

Complete lack of technology, sanitation, edible lunch room food, and intelligent teachers. The physical school is similar to a 19th Century mental institute. The computers barely work. The bathrooms never have paper towels. If the janitorial staff was paid based on how much time they spent working then they would get paid $0. If they were paid based on the amount of time they spend texting or talking on the cell phone, however, they would be rich.

I love Fike High School, because the school is a family oriented setting, and i believe the principle, teachers, and administrators care for the kids. I love Fike High, Go Demons.

I concur with the 4-26 posting. My child seems to have become a passive learner and doesn't know much more than when she was in the private college prep school across town in 8th grade. How can she make A's all year in a IB course but pull a 2 on the final test?

If you live in this school district, you may as well skip high school and go straight to college. You won't learn a single thing here, so you would just be wasting four years of your life.

I belive the education in Fike is lacking and the resources are limited. This school needs to be reavaluated for its merits .
