ACADEMICS AT Fairview HIGH SCHOOL
Fairview High School places a very high emphasis on the academic success and emotional well-being of all students. Various programs, for all levels of learners, challenge each FHS student to reach his/her/their maximum potential. FHS ensures students are well-equipped with the academic skills that allow them to follow their own unique academic pursuits and extracurricular endeavors during high school and beyond.
Fairview High School offers students one of the most comprehensive honors programs available in Colorado. With an emphasis on flexibility, the Fairview Honors Program allows students to select among International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and other advanced offerings to chart an individual path suited to their own goals and talents. The eight-period school day allows students to take more electives. Fairview’s honors courses have long attracted students who seek an environment of friendly support and stimulating classes, with classmates and teachers who share their excitement for learning. The customized approach to IB/AP enables students to craft schedules that provide appropriate academic challenge while allowing them freedom to pursue their passions. The IB/AP combination is particularly advantageous for students seeking admission to selective colleges, which attach great weight to the rigor of the student’s academic program. The IB/AP combination and concurrent enrollment classes offered at FHS maximizes the possibility of earning credit or advanced standing at many American colleges and universities. The IB Diploma is recognized by leading universities worldwide as a significant academic distinction.
