As a 2014 graduate, all i can say is, i learned nothing, i was not prepared at all for college, and even in other things, simple things, like finding a job. teachers never really care about what they teach to students, and the bullying level is severely high, i would never recommend this school to anyone for fear for their children

Academically this school does not prepare students for college. If your child is into sports, I would recommend Erie or Mead. My child signed up for Tack and Football and was taught as much as he was taught in the classroom. Same coach does both. Unless your child was born knowing how to play and excel at these sports, your child will walk away with as much frustration as the parents. There has been no effort to change coaching for 18 years, Go elsewhere!!!! Home schooling would be better by far!!!

This is an outstanding school! We have had children attending FHS since 2009. The principal, Pete Vargas, has shown a commitment to the students like I have never seen in a principal. He shows up at EVERYTHING to support the students. The assistant principals are great, too. The teachers, counselors and support staff are all caring. They are open to discussion and communication, but as parents we treat them as partners and not adversaries - parents often err in not examining their own child's actions. All of our kids have been on the honors/AP track and the oldest was very successful, earning several scholarships and was well prepared for an intense curriculum at a competitive private college. I see older kids mentoring younger kids in sports and good sportsmanship, our special needs child has on occasion had an IEP need or issue that has always been quickly resolved and there have been no problems with bullying, but instead concern and easy acceptance. The music and drama departments do quite well considering limited budgets. We love FHS and believe they are helping us raise up kids with good character and a solid academic work ethic!

Check out Frederick High School now that the new principal is there. He is very involved in all aspects of the high school experience. The student body has connected with him... the jocks, the drama nerds, high achieving academic students etc. Frederick is now on the right track. Thank you Principal Vargas

I am a graduate of Frederick High School, even thou all the students say there is an improvement within the school, I would like to say when i attended this school, I was a 3.5 gpa student and learned nothing while i was there. I started college and had to start at square one. My counselor told me that Frederick was one of the schools that he would not recommend to anyone.

I have been goingt o Frederick high for the past 3 years (since 7th grade) and the school has changed so much but for the good!! I have seen and been involved in programs that were recently set up such as the Intern program that now helps other schools as well and we need to look at the good at how the school is really inproving. We are having more done about gangs and drugs. Im in band and we are starting to see that there is more support at all sports events. zThats a huge step forward!!

Frederick has improved a lot over the years and should be getting way more respect and credit than it is now. There are good kids and good most of the teachers are great and respectful. Every school has their ups and downs and most of them have had a chance to redeem themselves. I think Frederick should get that chance as well.

I moved my children to Frederick because of the smaller size. My children came from a 2500 student school; they are all achieving very well academically and in sports. I fell that most of the disgruntled responses that are on this web site are from parents that do not get involved in their children s day to day activities. The staff at Frederick High School is very in tune to what is gong on in the school. All matters are handled quickly and professionally. The drama department is small, but efficient, again if more parents were involved there would be funds available to that department. All of my children excel in all athletics. There is a good level of competition, especially now that the school has moved up to 4A. Two of my children are already being watched by college recruiters. The only complaint that I have is that parents are not involved!

Frederick High school is a very welcoming school. With a staff that truly cares about connects with their students. As shown by the kids who come back even after they graduate and are in college. It is a great experience and I would never choose to go anywhere else.

This school is very bad, no supervision, so sincerity. The teachers and principle play favoritism and do not address ongoing issues. The students run free and do a lot of bullying.

This school does nothing to ensure the safety of my child. I have gone through this for the last 2 years and nothing has gotten resolved. The bullying in this school is outrageous. I cannot believe how long my family and I have dealt with this same problem and no resolution.

Absolutely horrible school... although all the schools in Firestone and Frederick are a absolutely horrible! We moved from Indiana and it's sad to say the public school systems are better there. The teachers could care less about the children, and these kids are our future. They are unprepared for college and have no chance in succeeding attending this school. If you child is in this school, then you don't care about your child's future success, I recommend another alternive, because anything is better than this school.

We took our son out of FHS and unfortunately had to put him in another St Vrain School. The staff at FHS is unmotivated and basically has given up trying to do their best.
