While attending this school I was basically ignored by teachers because I was not pretty and I did not play sports. I was also ignored when it came to needing help. They would tell me the basics and then go to the next student (that was a sports player or really pretty) and assume I know what I am doing. The facilities and the office staff were excellent though. The new cafeteria is amazing. They need to lower their prices or serve more food. The price isn't worth the food.

I formerly attended Farwell High School. I found the school system to be very supportive, with a stimulating environment. The most teachers did an excellent job, and exceeded in preparing me for college, as well as life. However, there are some complaints I have with Farwell High School; I feel that their sciences program is underdeveloped and they need to concentrate more on teaching students the proper way to learn Chemistry. I also feel that their math program could use some work. I completed Calculus at the college level and had many difficulties because my math teachers missed steps or had just assumed that I knew what I was doing. I am very pleased with the new renovations that have been made and hope to see more in the future for other students. Their extracurricular programs are well run and are diverse.

This school is an excellent environment for all kids in it. The 4 gyms that are stated in the other review were built and are fully used in the extracurricular activities that Farwell has many of. The special needs department is above par in many ways. The students are all very happy from what my son says and his friends. The teachers are very good and have many years under there belts. The school is very clean and secure. There are cameras all around the school...Inside and out. The was also a brand new building built on to it with a new gym and cafatorium. If you have any question please feel free to email me at: hazards280@gmail.com

I am very unahappy about the schools slow responses to special needs of some students. Also I am concerned at the spending priorities of a school that has four gyms and no money for special needs.
