Fair Park is changing attitudes and changing culture. Fair Park High School is changing for the better.
"School pride is back at Fair Park," said James Outley, Principal.
Outley is the principal, and the chief Indian around here. He took the job just a year ago, but under his leadership, the Indians are on a war path.
"We're going to make sure that athletics as well as academics are the best it can be," said Outley.
His plan is working.
"We here now, we're a family. We're one big Indian tribe," said LeVada Tate, student.
Tate is involved in pretty much everything going on around campus, but most importantly, she believes in being a leader in the classroom.
"I've tried to influence them to be in class on-time. Make good grades because without good grades you can't be successful --- and you can't be homecoming queen," said Tate.
Her king, Tyler Williams, is also leading the Indians in a positive way.
"We must come together because it’s our school and we show school spirit so everybody must come together and represent Fair Park," said Williams.
The best part of all this change? These Indians are winning on the field, too. In fact, they’re 5 and 0.
"We want to go undefeated for the year," said Outley.
Fair Park is finally becoming a tribe.
"One body - one mind - and we're one school," said Outley.
