Fairview/Fairview Educational Center/Fairview High School Index


Founded in the 1930s as William Bateman High School, it was the third High School to serve Fairview, although the original High School had long since closed its doors. The original building is a three storey brick built neoclassical structure topped by a domed rotunda, which still stands as the school’s main building. In the post-war years, a declining population and falling standards led to the closure of the town’s other High School, and William Bateman was renamed, becoming Fairview’s only surviving High School.

Over the following decades, the town’s population recovered and began to grow again, taking the school with it. A second building was added in the late 1960s to house the improved Science classrooms and their attached labs, followed by a purpose built Gym the following decade. By the dawn of the 1990s Fairview High was no longer the City’s only High School, although it maintained a high reputation and a prestigious position within the community. Plans for the Educational Center were first presented in 1991, and were finally implemented with the opening of Thomas Jefferson Middle School next door in September 1993, bringing a new era for the School.
