History

The old high school building, located north of the community park and the Normal Memorial Library on Eagle Street, was originally the Fayette Normal College of Business and Music and was established in 1882. The old high school was established in 1929, with additions being built in 1953, 1973, and 1997. The building finished its 80th year before the district moved into a new multi-million dollar building at the south edge of town. The Franklin elementary building was established in 1937 and became a part of the Fayette school system in 1968. Before the move in Fall 2008, the old high school housed grades 4-12 and the Franklin building housed K-3. The district is now in one K-12 school building located at 400 East Gamble Road in Fayette.

School Motto

The motto of Fayette High School is to "Do it the Eagle Way." Doing it the Eagle Way means to: 1-Do What's Right; 2-Do The Best You Can; 3-Treat Others Like You Want To Be Treated[citation needed]

Athletics

New School Building

Due to contamination issues from a local factory, the school district is now in a new K-12 school building. The $18.2 million school officially opened for the 2008/2009 school year after a dedication ceremony for the community on August 17. The new school features cutting edge technology and much more space than the previous school buildings. The old high school and elementary buildings have since be demolished.[citation needed]

Notable alumni

Pam Borton, head women's basketball coach at the University of Minnesota, is a graduate of Fayette High School.
