Hm, alright. I'm currently a junior at this school. I've been attending since my freshman year. My freshman year was smooth an easy. The school made it easy for me to transition from a middle school setting to a more mature setting. Though, I've had a bad experience going on after freshman year. Sophomore ...  Read more

The school provides many ways to teach the whole student, ie: they have a tutoring hour where the ...  Read more

This school has potential but they are not quite there. The students are allowed to loiter and there is high theft rate. My student and some peers have experienced bullying and theft. The principal, Dr. MUNOZ has no respect or concern for students safety. The administration does not return calls ...  Read more

I'm currently a JR and I have seriously wasted 3 years of my life here. Every single year I've attended, I've gotten at least 3-4 teachers that have no idea what they're doing. Also, the security guards and honestly the worst people ever. They're not afraid to talk to students with disrespect. The students ...  Read more

As far as academics, the school's great. The IB program is officially starting this year. Most teachers try to stay after school to help us out which I find great. However, the school environment is what I can't stand. Students here are very closed off and stay close to their own group/clique. We tolerate ...  Read more

It is extremely sad when the negative responses on this site is based from uninformed individuals. People tend more to complain than to give kudos. This school is focused on the student as an entire person, intending on rendering the community with a well rounded asset to the community. There is cultural ...  Read more

I'm currently a Junior at Betty H. Fairfax High School,. This school is very good at academics (IB Program) and athletics.

Our school is currently growing at the moment with academics because its a new school, but is striving ...  Read more

Prinicipal is extremely uncooperative and malicious. Teachers readily spread rumors and negate each others authority. Students are wild and out of control, due to no enforcement from security or administration. Academic expectations are extremely low, teachers ar merely urged to "rethink" their standards ...  Read more
