I do not reccomend this school to any upcoming staff member or any upcoming student. This school does not provide you with the techniques needed to form outside of school. The classes are too easy and simplified and the staff doesn't necessarily care whether you pass or not. Once you step into the real world you're left dumb-founded due to no prior experience. There is no autobody, mechanics, technical, wood shop--shops. I think personally, I'd get more of an education at an insane salem. The music and arts activities are some-what good, but lacks a great amount of participation. Our athletics team(s) are going downhill due to the new generation of laziness. The parent involvement rate is dropping dramatically because everyone is learning to hate Fitch and are switching to night school. The new policies, rulebrics, and grading system that is not being put into action is so rediculous that people laugh at it everyday. The school is like a prision, not a learning environment; giving the students with no freedoms causing them to rebel. I laugh at any parent who places their child/children in this school thinking they would have the best, however many years they attend there, of their high school career. Fitch is not the place to go-- send them elsewhere. You as a parent, and a student, will be much happier. I regret stepping foot inside this school; tainted.
