Two of my children have graduated from FFHS. Overall I would say it is a great school as it is small and the staff gets a real chance to know the students. Most of the teachers are great, but a few seemed to have moved here to live a different life and teaching is just an income.

I Went To this School My Freshman Year, and All I can Say is It's amazing. Everything about it in every way. From the way it was built and is kept clean, to Its Variety of classes. The Art Program was amazing. And My Biology class was Great. Mrs. James Was My favorite teacher. Still is :] I learned so much there, and I wish I could move back.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
