Alabama’s Top 2021 Schools


Olivia Cole, Reporter

Fairhope High School is one of the best public schools all around in our state. Fairhope High School was ranked 9th place this year in Alabama’s 2021 top high schools. In 2020 we were in spot 12, so in only a year we moved up to 9th! This year our student enrollment is 1,689, and our poverty rate is 12% direct Certified and 45% FRL eligible.

This year was difficult, we had many challenges we had to face together such as virtual school for a week, and two weeks off school due to Hurricane Sally. Fairhope High School strives to do its best no matter what. Our school and principal, Jon Cardwell, are honored to say our school is ranked 9th.
