    "Fairmont Senior High School offers a wide variety of classes and has an agreement with the Marion County Vocational Center to allow students to learn a trade. One concern with Fairmont Senior is that we have three buildings which require students to go outside multiple times a day. Additionally, Fairmont Senior shares a football stadium with another school and is approximately three blocks away. Our basketball arena is even further away from the school."

    "Teachers take care of their students as if their own children. Great and beautiful campus and facilities.The staff (the cooks, nurse, and etc.) extremely helpful to new faces. Classes are bit to spread out and the administration of the school is lirtle incommunicated and disorganized, but overall great school, filled with many possible new friends and memories that will last a lifetime."

    "I've been an alumni of Fairmont Senior High School for four years now. All the members of my family attended there and I continued on the legacy. I've never had major problems with this school. I'm heavily involved in Student Government, National Honor Society and more. They offer many clubs and organizations that can meet anyone's desires. When it comes to sports, we're top notch. When it comes to Academics, we're pretty up there as well. The only problem I have with our Academic system is our Math Department and teachers in that department. They are definitely not as qualified I feel as they should be. Collectively as a whole, our school struggles year to year in math and I do believe strongly that the teachers are partly responsible for that. However, there's no other school I'd rather spend my four years at. We have our quirks but nothing beats the feeling of being apart of the Polar Bear Family."

    "The school is alright I just don't like some of the teachers, classes, or students. But the school over all is an OK experience overall."

    "I transferred from Highlands Ranch in Colorado to Fairmont Senior in West Virginia. Two completely different schools; it was my sophomore year and i've never been so nervous. I was the "new girl" and they didn't get those often so all eyes were on me and i was very unsteady with that. but surprisingly everyone was so welcoming and kind hearted to me. I've been to so many schools in my life and the people here are by far one of the best. One thing i would like to see happen is there is not a big theatre program, we don't have a budget; which makes it hard for us to go to competition and i am personally in theatre and a lot of people are and it's a struggle to do some things without having a budget. But my favorite part is the school spirit! Everyone is always wearing blue and white, our school colors. We have assembly's to pump up our football players and our principle is very involved also. Fairmont Senior Highschool is one of the best schools you can go to."
