Fauquier High School
We Believe, Always Believe
Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health (FRESH) and Fauquier Public Library have partnered to bring StoryWalks® to the community. A StoryWalk® is a free outdoor activity that empowers families to move and read at the same time! Each page of a children’s book is placed on story boards along a walking path in the community. To read the book from beginning to end, families follow the path, visiting each signpost along the way.
Applications for the 2022 Summer Residential Governor’s School are now available. These worthwhile programs provide enrichment in the areas of agriculture, humanities, mathematics, science and technology, and the arts (dance, theatre, instrumental and vocal music and visual arts). Students, who should be nominated by a teacher, must be in 10th or 11th grade and enrolled during the 2021-2022 school year.
Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health (FRESH) is a Fauquier County Public Schools (FCPS) program with a mission to maximize opportunities for students to engage in active learning, active living, and nutritional education. During the week of October 3rd, FRESH partnered with the FCPS School Nutrition Program to host ‘Farm to School Week,’ where children across the county had an opportunity to experience local meat and produce as part of their school meal.
Fauquier County Public Schools’ on-time graduation rate increased from 95.5% in 2020 to an all-time high of 96.2 percent in 2021, according to data released by the Virginia Department of Education.
The Virginia Board of Education recognized Fauquier County Public Schools as a “School Division of Innovation” at its September 23 meeting. FCPS was one of five Virginia school divisions to earn this distinction for designing and implementing alternatives to traditional instructional practices and school structures to improve student learning and promote college and career readiness and good citizenship.
