My kids are juniors at Fort Collins High School. We have been very impressed with the quality of teachers FCHS. Of all the teachers my kids have had, I would only give a couple of them 3 out of 5 stars. All the others are 4 or 5 star teachers. The scores kids receive on AP exams at the school are excellent. This is from a parent's perspective, but I sense that the student body seems to embrace the diversity of this school. Kids seems to be supportive of others who participate in different activities or are in different groups than themselves.

My son has been at FCHS for two years and we love it! I have been impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication of his teachers, throughout all departments. From Pre-AP English, Math and Science to Spanish and AP Social Studies classes, his teachers have been outstanding. The administration is dedicated to looking proactively at both academics and school culture to determine what they are doing well, and how to keep improving. The administration is welcoming and open. I was worried my son might get "lost in the shuffle", but instead, he has found a wonderful peer group, both in his classes, extra curricular clubs and participation in a sports team. I highly recommend Fort Collins High School to other parents seeking an excellent education (they offer the most AP classes in town) with a great school culture for their children.

If you are new to Fort Collins as I was recently it is hard to know how to make the best educational decision for your beautiful kids especially for High Schools. We chose Fort Collins High and unless your kids go there you would not know the statistics of how many choice in and its a lot...they choice in because the teachers are amazing. If your kids are achieving academically they will get top-notch attention from the teachers (staff). I can call or email and I will be in complete contact within minutes with teachers. They will invite me/my kid to see them frequently the same day. The teachers always make room to tutor mornings, off periods or after school. My kids are in the AP curriculum and I/we cannot say enough great things....you will not regret deciding on Fort Collins High. The Principal, Asst. Principals, counseling all work hand in hand with you should you have questions. They want to make your child exceed...the "lack" of a waiting list to get in FCHS WORKS to your child's FAVOR. It is crazy how "certain" schools are getting the "wow" factor because they look so shiny and new. If you only knew how many kid come to Collins for the "quality" of education.

A joke. Recent events have just highlighted the lack of leadership at FCHS. Collins was an amazing school -- but the decline in enrollment, lack of academics and poor morale has lead this once fine school into decline.

A prestigious school with great staff, large diversity, a lot of acceptance, and many after school clubs. Great academics and music program! Superior in theater productions, and sporting a huge auditorium. Students have s lot of school spirit, especially during pep rallies and assemblies. I am proud to be a Lambkin! It really is the Home of the Champions! Go Clyde!

Fort Collins Highs School is the most chaotic and indifferent school I've ever been affiliated with. The communication between teachers and administrators is abysmal, there is a significant lack of structure and discipline of students, and inconsistent academic standards. AP students receive a lot of attention while ESL and special needs kids fall under the radar.

FCHS is by far the best of all the high schools in Fort Collins! Even though we have a wimpy mascot (by other peoples' standards ), us lambkins know how to make school a lot of fun. every assembly, there's shouting contests, homecoming week is a blast, and everyone's so laid back, and accepting of everyone. There's a lot of electives, after-school programs and activities, organizations, clubs, etc. that students can get involved in. There are also many AP and more challenging courses. You can even take some classes at Front Range Community College and get reimbursed the cost if you pass the final exam. Overall, Fort Collins High School is great, and I'll be proud to graduate as a lambkin! BAAA!!!

Fort Collins High School is great for a variety of reasons. The athletic and scholastic programs are by far the best in the city, aside from perhaps the selective IB program at Poudre High. I enjoyed going to this school, and very rarely was anyone unhappy. The staff is very polite, intelligent experienced, and they are very accepting.

I thought that it wasn't particularly challenging. But overall, lots of AP classes and activities.

Fort Collins high school isn t a high school for students that have a hard time with learning or being involved. The staff in a way makes you be involved in assembles. They don t really understand or care about what is going on outside of school. Most teachers are very unaware of what is going on in their students lives. If you have a child that is very involved this is a great school for them to go to. There are many sports team, art class and such.
