    "Have found the administration to be robotic at enforcing inane rules that punish the kids for no reason. There are students of the month and they're ALWAYS the same kids. The parents are in competiton to see who can be the top room mothers and their kids are the favorites. If you're not a jock who was ready for the big leagues by the age of 5 you have no chance. Why on earth would they start school on August 21st? I'm sure if they put their thinking caps on, they could come up with a way that high schoolers don't have to catch their buses at 6:30 AM but maybe they're too busy looking good to think of things like that. Generally its an OK school but the principals are meatheads."

    "Excellent school district elementary to middle to high school! Great teachers who are involved and like to teach. Storng leadership from the principals. Excellent opportunities for advanced learning and each student is enouraged to try their very hardest. The coursework can be demanding, but the kids push themselves and each other. SF focuses on the academics, arts and athletics equally. Where other school districts are cutting the arts and athletics, as well as AP opportunities, SF is a strong supporter of each of these. TRADITION, PRIDE AND EXCELLECE do matter at SF, and it shows!"

    "I am a current student at South Fayette High School and i've realized everything the first person said. I love my school don't get me wrong, but when teachers CANNOT afford books but they're building a NEW k-2 building, there's something wrong. Another point of concern, is the high school only pay attention to the students with High GPA's or Low GPA's, no one in the middle. They push us to do well in academics and athlelics that if you aren't good in those two areas, you don't get paid attention to PERIOD. The majority of the teachers are GREAT, however there are a few that aren't liked, but thats every high school, you can tell what teachers care and what ones don't. Overall, if you have a child that is a shining star in academics or athleltics, this is the school where they'll get recongized. Other than that, it's really not worth the time."

    "My children enjoy being in this district and wouldn't hear of moving elsewhere. They are doing well academically. There are technology courses available. On the minus side, there's not enough communication to the parents in the high school if the child is not keeping up and most homework is not posted anywhere. There's too much homework. They don't have enough variety in their sports program. The neighboring districts have a wider selection of sports available. They don't do enough for special needs students. What's with not letting the kids used the restroom in high school? They have a few minutes between classes and can barely make it to their next class but are not allowed to use the restroom during class time. The activity bus is too late. Most clubs or activities last a half hour to an hour and the kids are stuck waiting hours for the activity bus if there's no one available at that time of day to pick them up."

    "Too much money spent needlessly on extravagant buildings and too much teaching to the test. School administration is more concerned with achieving high state test scores than they are with truly educating students and teaching them a love for learning"
