My school is the coolest school. I learned how to slope linear equations and why Leonardo Da Vinci didn't like his birthmom. I LOVE MY SCHOOL. We may have a couple of involvements But overall it is a wonderfull school.
Parent involvement is non-existant. Being a K-12 school, smaller children are exposed to things the older kids are doing, even though they are in different buildings. Too much focus on high school, not enough on elementary students. It's not what you know @ FCHS, it's who you know or are related to.
This is about the High School - the elementary is O.K. but the school score reflects K-12. The high school is a mess. Don't send your kids there or you will regret it. There is little discipline. Academics play second to football and they have a loosing foot ball team. Most of the few kids who go on to college can't perform and end up dropping out. It has a high drop out rate - but this does not help raise scores - because it seems its the smart ones who figure out the the school is a waste of time.
Great school. Many parents are really involved, and community really supports the school, unfortunately, not all parents are involved. The after school program is top notch. Teachers are really good, expectations are high and effort is being made.
