I graduated from FHS in 1996 (age 35 now), so I'm twice as old as when I was in high school. Everything that has been written here is true -- outstanding teachers (faculty).. access to excellence in the arts, athletics, and academic co-curriculars...tight-knit student body. Like every school. FHS also has its warts: upper-middle class demographic that can be brutally exclusive to the "not in crowd" or the non-Fairview lifer...limited enrollment size stresses students to have broader shoulders to accomplish what their peers at larger schools do...and in a town struggling to redefine itself after losing the bulk of its local identity (vs. just an outlying Erie suburb). BUT...Fairview is the best school I've ever attended, and that includes both my undergrad and graduate colleges. The small size forces students to interact, know each other intimately, and rely upon each other. The teachers are visible in the community outside of school and families build close relationships with them. The financial security of most of the families in the district provides an atmosphere of purpose to what the students and teachers are there to do. If you can make it at FHS, college really is easy.
