My son goes to Cape Fear HS in Fayetteville NC. It is the best school he has gone to. We came from Indiana and the school he went to there for 8 years was the worse. He had technically failed every year but they wouldn't hold him back no matter what I did or said. He started Cape Fear as a 10th grader ...  Read more

Mr Jernigan has joined the staff of Miller-Motte College. We have many students requesting him because of his style of teaching. One student said,"Mr.Jernigan was a great principal and an even better teacher, he teaches me in a way I can be successful!"

As a recent alum, I have to say that the school does offer a great deal of opportunity to children of such a small community. However, teacher quality and principal leadership should be of concern to parents. The bar should be rasied significantly in these areas. When that is accomplished, the rate of ...  Read more

I am very pleased with Cape Fear H.S. I have already graduated one and have one left as a Senior. I think the leadership shows genuine concern. Mr Jernigan is a great principle because he has zero tolerance for disruptive, inappropriate conduct and behavior. The extracurricular activities are great. ...  Read more
