Fairview High School Receives Two National Recognitions 
Fairview High School has recently been nationally recognized by two different organizations. 

The International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE) has recognized Fairview High School as a Model High School after its detailed submission and proposal titled "Staying the Course of Your Innovation Journey: How to Shift Gears without Wearing Out the Clutch."
According to ICLE, "Model Schools and Innovative Districts recognize the need for change, collectively establish a vision, and systematically work together to create a learning environment that enables students of all abilities to thrive. They focus on leveraging individual data to make instructional decisions and personalize instruction; balance rigor and relevance in interdisciplinary learning; and create equity, access and opportunities for all."

The Fairview Park City School District received the "Innovative District" award in 2019. 
"Model Schools are schools that are experiencing rapid growth in student achievement; schools that are deliberately working to shift the culture to one of high expectations for ALL students; or schools that are working through challenges...and are beating the odds," says Dr. Bill Daggett, ICLE Founder. 

"Selection as both an ICLE Model School and as an Innovative District is a unique honor," said Dr. Bill Wagner, Superintendent of the Fairview Park City School District. "This continues to validate the future-focused work our teachers, administrators, and students are doing each and every day." 

On April 21, U.S. News and World Report announced its annual "Best High Schools" ranking. Fairview High School is ranked #117 in Ohio. 

The  Best High Schools rankings identify the country's top-performing public high schools. The goal is to provide a clear, unbiased picture of how well public schools serve all of their students - from the highest to lowest achieving - in preparing them to demonstrate proficiency in basic skills as well as readiness for college-level work.

U.S. News does not collect nor accept information directly from high schools. The data used to produce the Best High Schools rankings came entirely from the following third party sources including the U.S. Department of Education, The College Board (AP exam data), and statewide math and reading level assessment tests, as well as graduation rates.

Construction Update 4-28-20
Despite the school closure, our construction project is in its final stage of completion. The project timeline was delayed by about 2 weeks because of the COVID-19 executive order, and is now expected to be completed by mid-May. Watch this video for a walk-through of the progress. 

We are so thankful for community's support of this project from the 2016 permanent improvement levy/bond issue.

Grab-and-Go School Meals
The Fairview Park City School District is continuing to provide meals during the extended school closure for families who rely on free or reduced-cost meals for their children.
