    "Too overcrowded. Kids get lost in the numbers. Way too competitive. Athletes must specialize in a specific sport due to over-crowding. Even if they make a team they may not play/travel. Many scholar recipients are children of UA professor types--excellent students do not stand out.Teachers are advancing careers for pay raise; too busy w/administration requirements (trying to keep their school numbers falsely impressive). Good normal students are overlooked. Parents must be aggressive & proactive yet risk offending someone who isn't doing their job--teaching. Impressive facilities on the outside yet overworked tired staff on the inside. Parking/traffic issue is a nightmare. DAILY Spent 1 HOUR driving middle/elementary schools on opposite ends of town with HS in the middle despite alternate start times. Parents find out 1 day before school they were moved to a different school due to over crowding. Some schools do not have same calendars; if you have more than 1 child they may attend differently: don't plan vacation. Long-standing community families are elitists who shove their weight around &administration/coaches cave. Exodus to smaller rural schools is the trend."

    "This is a great school if you are talented in sports or extremely smart. Keep in mind, the only reason this school did not split into two high schools was athletics. The high school is being renovated for $100 million and has numerous issues such as traffic congestion, no time to eat lunch, and no additional parking. They could have moved but chose to stay in the same land locked location. However, if you want to pay local property owners $500+ a semester they will let you park in their driveway. If you an A/B student, this is not your school. You are just a number and teachers are hit and miss. Some are excellent. Some are bad and just waiting to retire. With so many students, they do not have time to invest themselves in the students and the counselors are overworked. I would look at the high schools in Springdale, Rogers, or Farmington before enrolling in Fayetteville."

    "Fayetteville High School is an amazing school with plenty of opportunities to excel academically and in the community and a school where you'll get to meet amazing people along the way. Socially, FHS is one of those places that accepts everyone and people are able to float around group to group; there are no boundaries with finding students from all walks of life socializing with everyone. Academically, the teachers are well suited in teaching students the fundamentals of a curriculum, but also going above and beyond by adding their own twists from their experience to make learning accessible and fun. The language teachers and AP teachers are the best (in my opinion). ;) I love this school."

    "Uneven teaching, but the only high school in the area in which you'd want your kids. If you go to parent/teacher conferences and check your student's homework and grades (online!) you can get a good feel for the quality of this school. The music and theater programs are great. Chemistry and history are standouts. Every other dept. has both excellent & disastrous teachers. 2011 state f'ball champs, lots of Nat'l Merit Scholars, counselors are helpful if you are persistent & involved. Very crowded but getting a facelift."
