Does not push the kids to look ahead. It seems they are like the schools of the 1950's and just get through and go to work.

The focus here seems to be "just stay in school and do the minimum to get by."

FCHS is a great school for our children. The teachers love and care for each one of our students. They provide extra curricular activities and advanced classes, which is absolutely wonderful. My daughter is an AB honor roll student at Fchs and I'm proud to say she goes here.

I attened FCHS. This is a great school. We have football, volleyball, cheerleading, magoretteing, softball, baseball, guitar classes, and many other extra classes. We do not have an art program. But as a student I know that the creativity of students here are amazing. The school is very safe and the student teacher relationship is wonderful. Sure there's some rude teachers but there's rude teachers in every school. The school always incourages the students to take part in and school acvtivaty!
