I love going to this school! The new principle has done a great job in his first year, including boosting school spirit and pride tremendously. Coming from a well-respected private school, I thought public school would be easy, but I have been constantly challenged here at Fontainebleau. Discipline is well-maintained and students get along pretty well. Although it is a large school and not every single teacher is going to be good, most teachers are great and care about the success of the students. I had a friend who started to slip in school and his teachers made sure he got back on track and informed his parents. There are many activities and the sports and music programs are great and have had much success. The school seems to have come a long way since it opened in '94 and seems to get better and better each year. I love it!
This is a great school and I have had absolutely no regrets sending my children here. They have grown to be very intelligent and well rounded young adults and I believe it has much to do with the staff and parent involvement at FHS. My children have done extremely well on the ACT and SAT and I feel very confident that they are more than prepared for college. My children also love going to FHS.
Fontainebleau High School is a wonderful school where there is high parent involvement, a high concentration of students who are willing to learn and perform high, and an amazing faculty. This school offers many extracurricular activities and many of the students are very well-rounded. There are many acclaimed private/catholic schools whose curriculums are not even on par with Fontainebleau's. If you were looking for that one school where you can find it all, Fontainebleau is that place!
FHS is a great school!!! It excels in academics, sports, the arts and all aspects of the school are superb! And the English department is considered one of the best around!
I'm currently a sophmore at FHS and this is only my second year living on the northshore. I have to say that this is the best move I ever made. FHS is an amazing school. They have teachers that really want to see the students pass and do well and they care about every one of them. It is very easy to make friends at FHS because everyone is so friendly and I have never really seen anyone get made fun of..everyone is friends with everybody there. People never get judged and you feel welcome your first day there. With our new principal this year, things have really gotten better because he is involved with the school and really cares about all the students. He also has a lot of school spirit! It's awesome and I'm so happy I go there..I made so many new friends! I absolutely love FHS!
I attended FHS from 2000-2004. I felt well prepared for college after most of their classes. My only complaint is their english program. It is not on par with the other course offered.
Great school, great teachers. This school has a very goal set and stictly inforces their rules, while having nice teachers that a willing to get to know your kid. They have a multitude of after school programs and has an excilente football team.
I currently go to fhs and enjoy it because the teachers really care about their students and help them with whatever they need. It is also very easy to make friends at fhs and nobody really gets made fun of. They have an excellent art department and the athletic and other after school activities are top quality. I also thoroughly enjoy going to a large school.
I graduated from Fontainebleau High School in May of 2000. I can say with certainty that FHS provided me with a top notch education and prepared me very well for college and professional life. In May of 2004 I graduated from the University of New Orleans among the top 15% of my class. I am currently in my first year pursuing an M.D. at the West Virginia University School of Medicine. My journey into the medical profession began my senior year at FHS with the help of Ms. Marshall, an exceptional Medical Terminology teacher. She was a tough teacher but managed to pique my interest in the field of medicine, an interest that continued into college and professional school. FHS is undoubtedly among the best public schools in the state of Louisiana, and those who are lucky enough to attend will be given a quality education and excellent career preparedness.
I graduated in 2000 and was totalled prepared for college. FHS had and I am sure still has an advanced curriculum in the core subjects. Their science department was wonderfully. I recommened FHS to anyone wanting a quality education in a safe enviroment.
This will be my fourth year at Fontianebleau High, and I must say that the school as a whole, is the best you will find for Louisianna Public Schools. Although some teachers arn't as passionate as others, most teachers want to see students succed. The Gifted programs are completely awesome!! All of the Gifted Teachers truly care about a student's success, want to see students expanding thier minds, and are very willing to dedicate time outside of school hours. The AP program is also very very good! In on-level classes it is easier to find teachers that are bogged down with too many students, but the schoolboard is highering new and qualified faculy, and this problem will be sloved shortly. I have grown to love FHS and, with our new principle, things are changing for the better! I am excited to see where this school will go!
Both of my children are at FHS and feel it is a very good school where they will be prepared for college. Parents are encouraged to get involved. The PTA is very active and parent volunteers make a differece. My children enjoy FHS and are active in different extracurricular activities. In 2004-2005 school we got a new principal and looking forward to a great year. Only negative is the over crowding, there are 2000+ students and number grows all the time. I must say we do not a problem with fights like I hear from other large schools. This is a safe place for our children.
St. Tammany Parish is the top school district in Louisiana, which isn't saying much since Louisiana is such a low educational state. However, St. Tammant Parish is becoming one of the best in the nation which is saying a lot. And Fontainebleau High has scored the highest overall Graduate Exit Exam scores this past year and they continues to rise. Parents love sending their kids there because they know they are getting a top rate education. Many of the kids also love it, despite some of the tough curriculum. Some people might complain that they only prepare pupils for standardized testing, but they do that and prepare them for college and/or the real world. Teachers and staff care about all students. The school not only has a top curriculum, but also numerous activities, service organizations, state-known athletics program and music program, and high parental involvement. What a stupendous school! Go Bulldogs!
FHS, is an 'okay' school. I have been going there for two years now. They concentrate mostly on standardize testing mostly, mainly the english department. The science department is wonderful, we have quite a few labs that allows students to get a hands on experience. The math department is rather nice because the math teachers are all close and have many different teaching methods they use to make sure every student comprehends. We have some outstanding teachers that are passionate about what they teach, but we also have a few blemishes which according to Louisiana law can not be fired because of being a member of that school for so long. But all in all, FHS is an okay place to learn. It has many ups and downs. But I have grown to love it.
I'm going to be a sophmore at FHS next year.I absolutely love it! It's the best and I just moved here from Harvey, so I've only been one year. The kids and teachers there are amazing. I have so many great friends! Nobody I know gets made fun of or judged by other kids. I'm so happy I got the chance to go here. Its the best school ever!
I'm currently a jounior at FHS class of 2005! THis school is the best! If you want to go to a good school FHS is that school the thing to do is band if you want to go to a school with a good band FHS is it the teachers are good and the band program is raisng the bar!
this school is the best i have ever been to. the athletic programs are some of the best in the state. especially baseball. i dont have to worry about getting things stolen or being jumped like i did at edna karr in algiers new orleans. this is a good school and the second largest school in louisiana but i love it!
Outstanding english department---prepares students for college. Challenging even to the brightest students
When I attended school from '99 to '01 I was surprised that it wasn't as bad a school as I expected coming from Colorado schools. The expectations at Fontainebleau are in my opinion up there. All the teachers I had really showed interest in their students. Some I visit to this day and keep them updated about my kids and husband.
