I've been very impressed with the teachers I've met at this school. The principal is great and they offer a variety of classes to challenge your child. I know FHS gets a bad rap but I think once all the "grandfathered juniors and seniors" are out and everyone is going to the school they are districted to, it will be interesting to see how the schools compare.
I have found this High School to offer much in way of acedemics, theatre, athletics and music. It 's all there if you choose to pursue it. FHS has outshone area high schools in Science Olympiad, English Expo results, and Knowledge Bowl, and has a fabulous staff. My frustration is that parents of my generation are so quick to believe everything they they hear, and to follow shiny new. It's really a shame. Give your District High School a chance.
I am very frustrated with teachers not entering the grades in the power school system. These should be entered at least weekly, so that progress can be monitored for students. It doesn't help parents or students to enter all of the grades the day before they are due!
