"I toured the school, I met with the principal and the administration, and I immediately felt I could see where she would be a good fit at Fairley High School. You could immediately tell that this school was here for the children, the staff was all about creating a safe, positive environment for the children."

What makes Fairley High School Unique

A cornerstone of the Whitehaven community for more than 50 years, Fairley High school joined the Green Dot family of schools in 2015. Fairley is a public charter school serving the Whitehaven and Westwood communities of Memphis by providing a safe, tuition-free learning environment focused on preparing students for College, Leadership and Life.

As the flagship school of Green Dot Public Schools in Tennessee, FHS has worked to change the trajectory for students by raising academic expectations, lowering suspensions and in turn, steadily raising ACT scores and graduation rates for students.

Green Dot Public Schools is a network of public charter schools in Los Angeles, California; Memphis, Tennessee; and the greater Seattle area in Washington. Our middle schools offer grades 6 to 8, and our high schools offer 9 to 12. Our schools are free and open to all students, like other public schools. 

Eight Green Dot high schools are ranked among the top 10% of schools nationally by US News & World Report, with four being in the top 5%.

Students enter Green Dot schools testing in the bottom 10% but are matching the graduation rate for the state.

These same students are 4 times more likely to graduate college-ready than students in neighboring schools.
