    I used to love attending school but once I moved up to the high school I grew to detest showing up everyday. The only aspect of the school I enjoyed was the music department. Many classes at the high school are just busy work and as students we often refered to them as "bull****" classes. In addition to the poorly designed "electives" the staff that handles the scheduling and transcripts are entirely unapproachable. While I attended the school I felt like a nuisance whenever I entered that office. The best way the school could improve would be to fix the attitude problem with their staff and revamp the elective classes so they are up to date and offer skills the students can actually use in life.

    Fruitport Schools are doing a lot of work to improve the quality of education for every student.

    Compared to other schools in the area Fruitport is much better. I just wish they were more lenient with the dress code had much better food and put funding into the arts. They give all the funding to the sports teams and the choirs bands and art programs don't get much funding. Our drama program was just cut.

    Fruitport is a great school district and really cares about the students. I see a great deal of effort on the part of the staff and parents to always improve the quality of the educational experience.

    I'm a junior at Fruitport and I love it! Like all schools it has its bad points but let s not go there. Teachers here truly care about our future and they'll do anything in their power to help us succeed. I used to be terrible in math but then I got an amazing math teacher who takes her time to help me as well as the class. Teachers here make sure that all the students understand what s being taught and even other students will take part in helping other students to understand the lesson being taught. If you're a student looking for a new school to go to then i whole heartedly recommend Fruitport. I didn't do so hot in school my first 3 years but the school never gave up on me and that means so much to me. I guess what is important to remember about school is that we are there to learn and to make a better future for ourselves. I love my school and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I without a doubt recommend this school to all students. There are so many great things to say about this school but this box only lets me write so much. I really hope you choose Fruitport as your school because it really is a great environment to learn and succeed.

    I rate my school a four as a Freshman there. Again the Athletic Foundation receives far too much of the schools income which is very frustrating because we will need new textbooks sometime soon. For instance in my English book it has students names in it from 1990. I have to admit that I am an over-achiever and I agree that they do spend more time on the over-achievers than the under-achievers. But...the teachers are amazing and I can't think of any that are truly strict. The graduation requirements are very reasonable too. The incoming 2012 students are said to have brand new high school. So please if your child is afraid of coming to this school just remember that the students are very kind and teachers as well. Thanks for reading along! Have a great day. Sincerely A Proud Freshman Student At Fruitport High School

    More drop outs than I care to discuss... I had to call them for attendance issues they never contacted me when my child was having major issues! Kids run that school!!

    I graduated from Fruitport in '05 and since then a new cafeteria has been added finally allowing almost everyone to sit in a chair instead of someone else's lap. The curriculum is outdated. The athletics department receives far to much financing and I say this after having been through football tennis and wrestling. I will say though that the teachers are some of the best I have had the pleasure of knowing. If they see a student is trying they help. Those who don't must help themselves.

    Fruitport is a good school.

    Our school I belive has good teachers who go more in depth in subjects and work hard to make sure every student is where they need to be.By taking longer on a subject they do get below the ciriculum but it gives every student a chance to learn what they need to learn. Our school is in very bad shape however and the sports department recives more than enough money needed. Fruitport is not a poor town and our school is not spending there money wisly. We cant fit our senior class in the autitorium the ceilings leak and the choir has deterierating music from the 60's. At Fruitport the sports are more aprechiated than the students who don't decide to play basketball or volleyball.

    Fruitport Schools is way behind on their curriculum since the late 70's when they lost their milage they have not been able to regain their status the teachers rely more on the parents to teach the kids giving alot of homework and don't spend the time needed on the kids that are under achievers spend more time on the over achievers! Fruitport should pay teachers according to the kids scholastic achievements not because they are working! Because most of the teachers in fruitport are only looking to take home a paycheck and don't care if a child succeeds!

    Fruitport High School doesn't have many college level classes and doesn't offer many advanced classes. Also it doesn't offer many different kinds of courses. Administration has been overly brutal lately and been forcing half the school at once to be put in a lunch room meant for fewer people that doesn't offer enough seating. Students are not even able to have a restroom available during lunch or able to go to their lockers. Many of the school's teachers and administrators are more apt to be considerate and fair to those students who participate in athletics and the like. There are many new teachers and many teachers teaching courses they've never taught before (ie. marketing teacher is now teaching Personal Law and Econ. and the French teacher is teaching English). More money is spent on sports then needed. Disipline is oppressive and unfair. Education and freedom here is going to the
