Fairport High School (FHS) is a public high school serving the tenth through twelfth grades in Fairport, NY and is part of the Fairport Central School District. Principal Christopher Salinas is currently in his second year at FHS.
Current enrollment estimates place the student population around 1,800. The Class of 2009 was the largest class to pass through FHS in approximately 15 years, totaling just under 700 students. FHS takes part in numerous international exchange programs, including trips to Ireland, France, Spain, Germany and Italy.
In 2009, Fairport became the first high school in New York State to offer a course in Game Design and Development. On a similar note, after town residents approved a technology funding measure, the Fairport Central School District made plans for a complete technological overhaul of FHS which will begin during Summer 2010. The overhaul includes readily available 802.11n wireless networks for both students and faculty, as well as high-speed synthetic fiber optic cables for wired computers.
