Fond du Lac High School ("Fondy High") is a comprehensive public high school in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Fond du Lac High School was inaugurated in 2001, replacing the former Goodrich High School, which existed as Fond du Lac's high school from 1922 to 2001. Fond du Lac High School athletic teams are known as the Cardinals.
Fond du Lac High School is the largest high school in Wisconsin in terms of area. It was built from 1998 to 2001 as a replacement for the aging Goodrich High school that had existed since 1922. Fond du Lac High School has an approximate enrollment of 2100 students each year.
Students at Fond du Lac have classes in the "H", called so due to the unique shape of the educational wing of the school. The bar in the letter "H" is the location of the library, while the other parts of the "H" are known as pods. Each pod is color coded violet, yellow, blue, and green respectively for English, Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies. The school also offers foreign language, located amongst the other pods. The technology education and art wings are located at the east of the school. Business classes and home economics classes are located between English & Social Studies and Math & Science, respectively. The cafeteria is located in a large space called the Commons. Music classes are located in a wing located to the west of the Commons, also housing the Performing Arts Center. Physical education classes are located north of the Commons, with the centerpiece of the wing being Fond du Lac High School's Acuity Fieldhouse.
The school is surrounded by retaining ponds, which are fitted with geothermal heat pumps in order to regulate the temperature of the school during the year. This is saving the school thousands each year in heating and cooling costs.
There are several Advanced Placement, or AP, classes offered for college credit at Fondy High. They include calculus, chemistry, physics, psychology, U.S. politics and government, comparative politics and government, statistics, and literature and composition.
