I would give this school a 5 star . It had everything my children need to build their knowledge thru academics as they are the only schools to offer IB STEM and AP classes with free after school help . Apart from the academics the number of electives , community service org, they also have very good sports teams and clubs. I feel my children are being rounded off to be great citizens because of the amazing support of teachers and staff .I moved 4 hours just so my kids could go to this school and I think its worth every penny ,time and energy after searching for a good well rounded HS. My oldest just graduated yesterday and there is nothing but pride. And gratitude to the school . Thanks fairmont . You are the best!
