A competitive academic environment where my children have good teachers who are accessible to our students and us as parents. The teachers, counselors, and administrators "partner" with our family to help us create the best educational environment for our kids. We love it here!

I cannot say enough positive things about Francis Howell High School! Great teachers, coaches and students! My daughter has thrived at FHHS academically and socially and is proud to be a Viking!

My son is a freshman this year. After the adjustment period, he settled in and is doing really well, even though a few are honors classes. It's a large school, so it really helped that he was in marching band. Had a chanced to meet and bond with others students at band camp. Parents very involved and supportive.The teachers, counselors are helpful and encouraging. Good communication to keep parents informed. Lots of school spirit in music, sports, etc. Nothing is perfect, and anyone looking for trouble can probably find it. But on the whole, if you want to learn and excel, you can find more than enough opportunities to do that at Francis Howell High. Go Vikings!

A year ago I went to this school. And had a blast. Tranferring from Middle School to high school, was long and tough. The people at the school are real nice of all grades. I was in one class with sophmoores and juniors they are a little imature but very friendly. So is the staff. They have nurses there all day during school. The students schedules involve alot of walking to get to class. Next Year theres ganna be a new building, so they are tearing down the older buildings. Lunches here run at $2.00 for students which isn't bad. The school is near Bush Wild Life. So it might not be the ideal neighborhood with all the trees and its near a highway. The buses are older. Your child will have no problem in finding his or her bus. Buses are well ordered. School starts a little too early for my taste. But this school is by far the Best High school I have attended.

Proud to be a Viking parent. My child enjoys the choice of clubs and athletics. She enrolled in the multiple AP classes offered, and is doing a wonderful job. The Parent Viewer issues have been addressed. The principals are very visible and hands on at the school. They address parents of incoming freshman and welcome all parents to participate in school activities to make it a better school community.

Currently have a Freshman here, and am disappointed in the switch from middle school to HS. Middle school had very little homework, tests, etc and the teachers let them do a retake if they did not get a B or above. Not helpful in the long run!! High school has tests or quiz weekly, with assignments daily. More realistic, but my child was not prepared. This prinicpal should interact with MS Principals to get them on the right track. Makes for a harder transition. This school is big, 1600 students, and you have to be on the ball and organized. The teachers are okay and will respond, but their online parent viewer is a joke. Half the teachers don't put grades in until right before midterm or even later. It's not unusual to have a grade posted a month later. No excuse for that. My child rarely knows their project grades.

FHHS is a great school. My daughter has excelled in academics since her freshman year. Her teachers are very dedicated to the success of each student. 5-Stars.

This was an excellent school. Despite its size and the age of its buildings, my son thrived at FHHS. Great teachers!
