About Fairview High School
Fairview High was established in 1956 as West High, it was named West High because it served the students of Western Williamson County.
Before the school was built, students from this area had to attend either Franklin High or Hillsboro High. West High housed grades 7 – 12. The school’s first principal was W.W. Wallace and the first graduating class had 20 seniors. The students chose the Yellow Jacket as their Mascot in 1962 when the school changed its name to Fairview High School.
The school was located where the Fairview Williamson County Rec Center is currently located. Fairview High moved in 1982 to its current location, 2595 Fairview Boulevard. Our school has had many additions since its opening! Including, but not limited to, three wing additions, sports auditorium, outdoor athletic weight room (The Barn), and in 2017 we added a performing arts center, also known as the FPAC – you will hear this acronym quite often!
Western Williamson County is a tight knit community with many fun traditions, such as, in past years, the Freshmen dressing as babies, or Future Farmers of America (FFA) kids driving their tractors to school during the FFA celebration days.
Many teachers, coaches, teaching assistants, staff and administrators were former students. Their love of community runs deep, it brought them back home to be the leaders of the community that they are now.
Fairview High is the only true “cluster” school in Williamson County. We have two elementary schools, Westwood and Fairview, that feed into one Fairview Middle School which feeds into Fairview High.
If you want a quality education from people who not only love their school and love their community, but still walk the halls they did at your age, come see what we are all about!
