    "My child has been at this school for 2 years, has a very high GPA, takes IB/AP classes, has many friends, is in sports, all kinds of clubs and is very involved and motivated in general. student likes FHS mainly because friends go there and excels in spite of many obstacles, culture and challenges at this school. experience has been that the school climate in general is not so great. Very competitive, lack of transparency- e.g., for some club/activity selection seems to be arbitrarily exclusive, without transparency, and no due process. Teachers and counselors are overloaded, don't respond to emails or messages, and students and parents have to be very persistent to get an answer which leads to perception that lack of accountability, time or not caring or some combo. staff don't admit mistakes or like to be challenged, blame stuents .Students don't have much time to be persistent due to heavy load so concerns are dropped. Have second guessed selecting FHS, others say diff h.s. in the area get to know their students. school prepares for life because it's ruthless, not fair. good news is, if survive, can handle most anything. mostly school highly rated bc of high potential students"

    "I am so glad that I went to this school. It was an amazing experience and prepared me very well for college. I am currently an elementary school teacher in a different district and wish that lived in Boulder so my kids could attend this school. Fairview's teachers were always encouraging me to follow my dreams and worked tirelessly to make sure I understood the curriculum. The choir program was outstanding and extremely fun to be a part of. I would not change my high school experience for anything. If you are looking for a great, high performing school with many different activities, clubs and classes then Fairview is a great choice."

    "Fairview is interested in their sports programs and only students who fit their mold. The administration want kids who don't rock the boat and toe the line. Their counselors with a few exceptions are under motivated and not creative. Fairview has some really incredible teachers who are working against an administration that only seems to care about performance and not students. So if your student has no issues, loves homework and is just another face in the crowd they will do fine. If your student questions things, is an alternative learner and wants to have any social interaction with people not into their clique, then another school might be a better fit."

    "I remember this school. The things that I experienced were quite surprising. As I recall they would take note of the students that had the lowest performance rates on a list... then slowly they would go through the list and encourage the student to drop out or to transfer to different schools. I assume this was to keep the ranking of the school up? I don't really know, and that practice might have changed by now. The teachers that attempted to help these students to succeed were many times overwrought with difficulty and resistance. There also seemed to be a major lack of communication across the system and intense focus in only specific areas. The building is also badly constructed for mental health as there is little natural sunlight and the shape is hive like. Many of the teachers also seemed to be overloaded with work and so students were not properly attended to. The lack of diversity is also a bit disconcerting. So, from the perspective of an alternative learner I would really suggest going somewhere else."
