As a student at FMHS I have had the opportunity to play on two CIF Championship teams as well as play a key role in our ASB. I am an Academy student and have learned a tremendous amount in all areas of academics. I feel comfortable presenting a thematic, debating with my peers, putting together presentations, and have had the opportunity to learn a variety of different forms of technology and art. I feel I am well prepared for college and am excited to see where my future will lead me.

I am an alumni of Frazier Mountain High School. I am originally from a much bigger town near by but, after hearing nothing but amazing things about the staff of the H.S., I decided to move and attend school there. My experience there was phenomenal! Some of the nicest people I know live in that town. Due to the population being so small, the teachers really take the time to understand and connect with the students. This creates a lasting friendship with the students and it helps the students to see themselves furthering their education on to the collegiate level. The principal, Mrs. Haflich, has done so much for the school to make sure the students are getting the most out of their education. This speaks world of her since we have such a small budget. At the school, we have an academy program. This is like a school with in a school. It's completely optional and up to the student. This program helps to prepare students for college and encourages them to go. The teachers in charge of the academy are by far the best teachers I have ever had. They even introduced different programs into our school to prepare us even more for college and for the working world. This school is amazing.

I had 6 kids go through this school and I cannot stress enough how much this school can do for kids. The staff and administration have been on the same page to help kids since Principal "Dynamo" Haflich took over. That is not to say they were neglectful before but it is to emphasize how many more options the kids have available to them now even when considering our recent budget woes in California. Teachers (and some community members) carried the JV sports and other extra-curricular activities by teaching and coaching these events for free when there was no money coming from the State. At FMHS, you get out of it what you put into it. For no additional cost you get a warm, caring, professional family that wants nothing more than to see our Falcons fly as high as their wings will take them.

I am a community member who has been reading about the exceptional opportunities that are being currently offered at FMHS as well as the upcoming programs that are in development. The students already have the opportunity to obtain numerous college credits through dual enrollment classes and I know they are in the process of establishing many more. The ComTec Academy is also a wonderful asset for our teens up here on the mountain.

As a former parent of a Frazier Mountain High School student, I have always found the school to give a solid educational foundation. We have a wonderful group of educators and having this facility in our small community is a great resource that is used by many local groups. Before this school was built in the 1990's our students had a very long commute to schools in Taft or Bakersfield.

I am an alumnae of FMHS and now currently am a substitute teacher in the district. I had a positive experience attending the school and enjoyed having a small school where you feel even more connected to the students and faculty. My experience subbing at this school has been the same, I absolutely enjoy getting the opportunity to get to know the students and enjoy finding out about several of their higher education plans. The staff is friendly, supportive and wonderful to work with.

The benefits of a small town atmosphere coupled with a challenging learning environment and loads of course offerings make this school a great choice for your child or children.

This is a small school with great plans for its future. The school is working with the Kern County Community College district to help the students earn college credits while they are still in high school. They are offering new and exciting programs next year. The teachers and staff love what they are doing and it shows.

While this school is small, the students have an opportunity to participate in leadership and athletics that they may not have at a larger school. Smaller class sizes afford students more personalized help. Teachers and staff know their students and many choose to invest in them. Despite bumps in the road, we are thankful for this school.

I graduated from here in 2013. More electives and Advanced Placement classes are needed to make this school more academically competitive Also, teacher quality is a major issue. FMHS doesn't send many kids to 4 year colleges { 20 to 25% each year }, I transfered to Hart High School in the Santa Clarita Valley for my junior year before returning to FMHS due to transportation costs, and the difference in academic quality was an eye- opner for me. Athletic success is rare, mostly because many of the coaches lack a solid background in coaching at the high school level. A sports website like Maxpreps, would show the mostly poor history of this school's sport's teams. For my part, I competed in cross country running and track by myself, because the school would not support the creation of an official team for either sport. I am currently at Santa Barbara City College which is a great school, but I had orginally hoped to attend a 4 year university right and compete in collegiate running on scholarship, but I lacked a coacj to guide me and due to FMHS's poor academic quality, I have to take a lot of remedial classes to strengthen my academic foundation.

I'm a senior at FMHS and I think it's a lovely place. You're gonna meet people and be friends with almost half the school. And you get really close to other students. It's a small town, you can't expect this to be a 5 star school. But it's great

I'd point out to parents and students reading these reviews that the newest one, before this, is three years old. There have been major changes at the high school, including a new principal. Miraculously, the sports teams are also taking multiple league championships. That is because parents are involved in coaching and intermural transportation. The school spirit has improved markedly.

i was a student of FMHS for half a year. However i had 3 syblings that went there for many years combined. The highschool was decent to start with, but has just been falling apart. there are some teachers there that actually really care about the student, and even more teachers that do not. the only elective that was offered for me was art 1 however there were indeed a lot of afterschool activities that students could do, such as: drumline, drama, frisbee and many more.

I graduated from FMHS in 2005, I am now a senior at a Califonia State University. I thought this was a bad school when I attended and it's only gotten worse. If I could give this school no stars, I would. Very few teachers genuinley care about their students and/or can actually teach. I can think of only three teachers from this school that I truly respect, and at least two of them have moved on. There are also very few extracurricular courses available and those that are offered are horrible. (Have you ever heard of a music teacher that doesn't read music?) Welcome to Frazier Park- I'd run!

I am a student here at FMHS, and i honestly think that it stinks. The administration is disorganized, does not communicate with the students, and doesn't know how to do anything. The few veteran teachers are going to be leaving in the next few years. If gas wasn't so expensive, I would commute to schools that are 100 miles away instead of going here!

Just like anything in life, you get out what you put in. I think the high school and district are doing the best job possible with the means at hand. Parents need to get more involved with the education of there children.

Entire El Tejon School District (and especially Frazier Mountain High) does not provide children of this community with a quality education. Not well organized, faculty difficult to deal with.

FMHS is a school with a lot of potential, however the current principal is lacking in many ways including leadership and the amount of respect given to students. The teachers are amazing and are able to develope good relationships with their studets. Also, there is a wide range of extra-cirricular activties the this high school provides.

This school is greatly lacking in so many ways, despite the potential it has. The schools administration is mostly to blame for this. The school is unable to hold onto veteran teachers.
