This school is not really good. Teachers hardly help and the test scores are not as high as they say.

Hi I'm sueraya, as most of you may notice the comments being left are about the past and it's memories- not about the present and the future. Once upon a time, teachers were helpful and caring. Now, teachers are too busy doing nothing that involves students. My son was enrolled for only one semester before I had him transferred ASAP. Fordson was in no way helpful, I couldn't even communicate with an official properly. They kept telling me the situation was being taken care of but really, nothing was being done at all. Can't explain how horrible my experience with them was.

Very unprofessional, if a student needs help the staff will help just for a moment and leave, no help is there? but if you go after school tutoring it's a jungle. Rates in testing and student activity is horrible.

I'm a student in Fordson and it's not as good as I expected. Teachers don't really care if you do your work or not. Also, the schools is very unorganized and doesn't know how to deal correctly with different problems and situations.

At our school we are over populated but you wouldn't notice it with all the talent and potential our students have. We come together in sporting events. We have such a great architectural building. We have a great football team and other sport teams.

Fordon is one of the best schools. I am a Fordson graduate. We have great teachers who are willing to help out students. When i was in high school i used see college students coming back to their old teachers for help. It shows that they really care. The principle is strict but he has good policies that will bring more order to the school. Many of the students are very smart. I love it!

Fordson High School is a great school. Lots of staff members really work hard in turning around the school. Staff meetings always take place and suggestions for improving the school are made. The school has improved enormously. Ask the teachers how many times they see their students who have graduated and became doctors and such. Also, you don't always need literature to post a response. Just an opinion and a hint of logic.

It is a horrible school. I attend it, and have one more year to go after I finish my current year. To show how uneducated the school actually is, look at how the person below me tried explaining how smart the school is. Not the best use of literature.

It's not really a school environment, and simply by looking at the test scores you'll find FHS to be below all State averages, lowest among all other High Schools in the city. This was not always the case, but it started when a new administration took over under Mr.Fadlallah . The previous administration really had a grip on things, as FHS was a pleasant learning environment. By the way, I am of middle eastern descent and has nothing personal against Mr. Fadlallah's ethnic background. I recommend the replacement of this administration with one that really encourages students to learn and stay in school instead of discouraging them with intimidation and fear tactics. If the future of your children is important to you, you need to join me in demanding a change; just take a look at the sad test scores.

I have two children currently at Fordson , and one who is a Fordson Graduate.... I am very disappointed at the leadership currently in the school , the school is run like a prison camp and they take very little interest in what the parent or student has to say, for example they had put my child in a advanced math class by mistake, I made several phone calls and kept getting pushed from the counselor to the assistant principal, who by the way never called me back after my several calls. As a result my child was kept in advanced math not one but two semesters and failed both, this is just one example, it's like they really don't care. The principal is doing a very poor job the school has gone down hill. When Paul Smith was principal things got done.

Fordson High School is a really nice and fun school to be in. That does not mean partieing and having fun is wat we do here but we also learn and the learning here is strict. Mr.Fadlallah(principal) is such a nice yet strict principal but he makes rules to help us. Fordson High School is the high school that i encourage your child to go to.
