They definitely have rules if the student wants to succeed in the school they will have to respect them. *With a few exceptions ie drooping pants

Develops empathy: Neutral
June 12, 2015
In all fairness with a student body this large these values are hard pressed to teach at this point they are already imprinted with what the family values or not. Caring and empathy are also taught at an early age. If they are lucky they may be able to reach those few students who are hungry for good values other than the ones they learned at home otherwise. They are dealing with a Very Uphill battle...

Honesty,Integrity are not Values the school promotes. As a freshman my son had his cell phone, very nice backpack stolen from him, Furthermore he was not going to be allowed to keep his New backpack on him! The locker was broken into his gym shoes, Gifts that he had taken to give out... Gone!. When he reported it the Office staff treated the Report as Commonplace... nothing further was done or said about the incident. That troubled me each school year we do extensive shopping for the "Perfect backpack chosen from dozens & dozens just to have it snagged by a student with no scruples {Which should be taught in the Home First!] :(

Beautiful Campus!... Mixture of old buildings and New. For the shear volume of students enrolled it runs rather smoothly. Teachers are willing to go the extra mile to help students that are unsteady. As well as clearing the way for students who are ready to excel! Security strives to be on top of each and Every incident!. There is a diverse group of people attending this campus. :) It is much safer than i had heard it was... The only thing i saw that was supposed to be a violation of the dress code was a little too much "Sagging!' students with droopy pants, Offending students are notified they comply the min. Staff gets out of view they revert to the same behavior. By allowing this to continue it sends a wrong message. Its Ok, Or going to be "Overlooked if i break the rules. :(

I have two daughters that attend this Highschool and they say that the classes are challenging and the teachers are intellectual. They have a great afterschool program that assist with everything from homework assistance to SAT prep. I am satisfied with the education my children are receiving at Fresno Highschool.

I am a graduate at this school. I attended this school for 4 years and through those years, I saw many changes in the school, whether it is the cosmetic, academic, or staff changes. What I have to say is that this school is much better than the reputation it has, and this is because I've had friends that transfered from other schools to Fresno High to attend their senior year, and that is what they personally told me. I was also a student in the IB Program that this school offered, and I have to say that the IB Program really help guide my way through high school, and onto a University. Long story short for anyone who is looking to attend this school, or sending their child to this school, the Pro of this school would be the programs that this school offers. There are the rare IB Program, CAHSEE Prep Program, many different Afterschool programs, JROTC (Military) Program, Parent/School meeting programs for all different language, etc. The cons would be the very strict rules school enforces due to the school district. This school makes students feel like they are locked up in prison when they step on campus, which doesn't prep you for college in an open environment.

Fresno High is an International Baccalaurette school and therefore we do not give many A.P. exams opting for the I.B. program which is a much more rigorous and much better in terms of academic quality. Clyde Auston

This school is one of the top. Many people consider to be a rough, low class, or low achieving school but it's quite the opposite. It is very diverse, has great dedicated teachers, & an awesome IB Program! My daughter attended there for 3 years, and it was a great experience for her. It prepared her for the real world. Her Junior High years and 1st year of Highschool were spent in Clovis Unified, but it didn't fit her. In CUSD, teachers seemed to overlook the 'over-achievers' & my daughter was a straight A student. In my experience, Fresno High was great because it helps students individually achieve to their highest capability. Even though she wasn't interested in an international college, the fact that she was accepted to their IB proigram looked great on her r sum , & she got accepted to 6 out of 7 colleges. I highly recommend this school.

What a great school! This is the only school which carries the city's name. Why such a bad rap. I have found the school to be amazing! It starts at home and carries over. I am so proud to be an Alumni and a parent of a graduating Senior and incoming Freshman. I wouldn't have my children attend any other school. Come out and see what is going on. You'll find a campus full of wonderful students, student athletes, staff and a supporting surrounding community. Proud to be a Warrior!

Fresno High has been at the forefront of the smaller learning communities. For 17 years the Fresno High Marketing Academy has been doing its job educating students for college and career all within a smaller, school-within-a-school framework. This program has been the impetus for other small learning communities on the campus. Fresno High does some things very well, however, it still needs to work on giving every student the same experience.

While it is difficult to get most students here motivated, there is a very good top 10% of the school. This includes the athletes, the AP students, and those in student government. Lasts years graduationg class saw 2 students off to UC Berkeley, 2 to UC Davis, many to UCLA, one student to Dratmouth, and many students to State schools, shuch as Fresno State. The Athletic programs in the last few years have showed vast improvement. The Baseball team has not missed the playoffs in any of the last 4 years, making it to the Central California Section Championship game in 2004, as did the football team the following year. The FHS band is great, quite often going out of state for compitions.

I have had one child graduate (as valedictorian) from Fresno High School, and currently have a senior son and sophomore daughter attending the school. The education at Fresno High is wonderful. The teachers are well educated and prepared, the staff includes enthusiastice new teachers, as well as veterans who really know their stuff. The principal, Mr. Reyes, truly has an 'open door policy' for both parents and students.

My Daughter is about to graduate from Fresno High. After four years at this school, she has the tools needed for success at a four year college. The faculty has been encouraging and challenging and I remain grateful to them for the fine education they provided my daughter. In particular I would thank Mrs. Nguyen and Ms. Oller who provided the right mix of encouragement and rigorous curriculum. The IB program is not the only good thing about Fresno High. The entire faculty and staff is caring and supportive of students of all levels of ability. Thank you Fresno High for helping me turn out such a fine, well-rounded young woman.
