    Fox High School and the entire Fox district are outstanding. My youngest son graduated in 2006 and is now in college. Were it not for the efforts of his wonderful teachers I'm sure he wouldn't be in college. They truly care for their students. Tyler was fortunate to attend schools in the Fox District from 1st grade through high school graduation. They are tops as far as I'm concerned and truly deserve to win this award.

    Well for starters our kids are he best of the best ! Academic's Sport's Talent . Staff works just as hard if not harder . Our very own President Barack Obama visited our shool's at Fox C-6. Our schools also rank in the top ten in the Nation. I would say that is more than enough by a landslide ! Thank You - wish us luck -Go Fox Warriors Mother of a Junior @ Fox Senior High -Mrs. Lori Carron

    I am a former student at Fox Senior High School and since I graduated I have seen improvements above and beyond my own experience which was excellent and challenging. At the time I was in all honors classes and involved in a number of activities which I believe helped me along the path towards success in college and beyond. The AP classes at Fox were leaps and bounds more difficult than a majority of the classes I had in college which I believe really shows the standards those teachers have and the challenges they wish to impart to their students.

    Very little communication between busy parents and teachers or staff. Need a more progressive system that will keep busy parents informed through email and a system that parents can check on homework assignments. All we have is our child's word that they don't have homework. The current system is not set up for superior daily communication.

    The teachers are great and really strive to get their students involved in learning. There are several that personally take the time to e-mail updates on their classes and parent feedback is welcomed and answered. If I have a question the teacher promptly answers me. There are a lot of extracurricular activities and students are always encouraged and invited to join. This is a great school.

    I am a graduate of Fox Senior High School and as a past student I would not recommend anyone sending their child to Fox that has not been in the Fox C-6 district their entire lives. Sports figures and wealthy students are put on a much higher pedestal than those students with higher academic qualities and test scores. They are more concerned with the cash flow of the district and name dropping than with the education of the children. While there are a few teachers who do take the time and effort to truly teach and reach out to the kids they are few and far between.

    I am currently considered a freshman at Fox High School. I failed the previous freshman year because of the teachers lack of help and they favor students over others. My principal is Ok but some of the teachers don't treat students right they put the wrestlers and football players and cheerleaders over everybody else and thats just rediculous. If it wasn't for all the snobs at Seckman I'd go their. But the only thing I truly like about Fox is that I have met friends that will last a lifetime! -Ashley-

    I'm a junior and I attend Fox. So far I have learned a lot and have had a great experience at Fox. I wouldn't want to be in any other school. The teachers at Fox are really great. They go out of their way to help you in any way they can. I've had many great teachers. Some of them have even inspired me and have touched my life. These teachers from Fox teach from their heart; not the book. Fox is an awesome school! -Nicole

    Fox is a great High school. The teachers care about the students and seem involved. I would like to see their sports program better. They struggle at football soccer baseball and others. My son plays soccer and they lose almost every game on all teams freshman jv and varsity. I wish that would change because if it does not I will not send my younger son to Fox. We will either move or go to a private high school. Other than that I believe Fox is a good school.

    Wow! I have two children who have attended Fox High School. My last child is a Senior currently. I know they have both received an outstanding public education. My daughter is a sophomore in college on academic scholarship and has been on the Dean's List since she started. My son has excellent ACT scores and I am sure he will do well in college. I credit the teachers principals counselors and coaches at Fox High School for the incredible High School Experience my kids have received.

    I am very disappointed with Fox High School. The curriculum did not challenge my child the teachers were not helpful and the amount of homework they gave out was incredible. I sned my child to school for 7 hours of school and they come home with 3 hours of homework. Purely ridiculous. I was very disappointed with the entire Fox C-6 district and decided to homeschool my child. He has since made friends who aren't on drugs and has been in a happier mood than when he went to Fox.

    I have just started going to Fox Senior High School and I have brought all of my grades up and I am actually understanding the things we are learning. I also have fun and enjoy going here. I didn't want to leave my old school but now that I have been at Fox for a little over 2 months I like it much better. I want to finish my high school education at Fox and no where else. they help me when ever I need the help. and they understand our problems and try to help us as much as they can. I would recomend this school for everyone.
