History: J.A. Fair High School was established in 1981, with construction completed and doors open to students in August 1982. The school was named for James Augustus Fair, an educator, who spent his career as a biology teacher, administrator and after retirement served on the Pulaski County School Board.

From its opening in 1982 through June 1987, FHS served as a junior/senior high school (grades 7-12) for the Pulaski County Special School District. In August 1987, FHS opened as a senior high school for the Little Rock School District, one of 14 schools annexed to enhance desegregation efforts. FHS became a magnet school in the fall of 2000.

The school mascot is the War Eagle. School colors are silver, blue (navy), and white. Students are exposed to a comprehensive curriculum which focuses on preparing students to meet the challenges of the future. Plenty of "War Eagles Spirit" abounds among faculty and staff.
