Good school, great teachers. If your child puts in the effort, they will have a rewarding experience. Great art classes and AP courses.

This high school has an excellent music / band program. Students are encouraged to be independent and to strive. AP classes are not for everyone, so be on the lookout for falling grades. Parent oversight and advocacy is required.

This is a great school for self-motivated and self-directed students. Teachers and administrators are willing to support students with clear direction and goals and there are significant resources available for savvy students. Unfortunately, formal advising is dismally ineffective.

I thought Foran was a great school to attend. Many of the teachers I had were very helpful, especially if a student needed extra time outside of class. The guidance department is only minimally helpful, but I always found that it was up to the students to put the effort in trying to get to see them. The experience really is dependent on how much effort the students are willing to put forth generally.

As a parent, I am completely dissatisfied with Foran High. The teachers lack the ability to educate and give no support to the students. Guidance and Principals are a joke. I deeply regret not sending my child to a private school.

It would be helpful to the students and to the faculty if there were more Guidance Counselors to help the students choose their courses. Of course they would be more beneficial if they weren't so bogged down in paperwork as well. My son has only had minimal contact with his counselor and he is going into his senior year at Foran.going into his senior year.
