FJH has a brand new state of the art facility. It is beautiful. This we are enjoying. My child has had mostly wonderful teachers in 6th and 7th grades. One or two have been bad. The ancillary staff are very nice. As far as the administration goes, I think about half of them need replacing. On the good side, the instruction is high level. On the bad side, a lot of the kids are very snobby and cliquish, and there is a lot of bullying. There is too much emphasis and money spent on sports, and no programs or associations for the gifted kids, while surrounding school districts all have dedicated gifted programs. If my child was academic and not into sports, I would not go here.
If the school is so great then why can't the students who are writing reviews spell!!! I have never seen so many misspellings! Friendswood is a dopey town full of dopey kids and parents!! Weird bunch of people and the school district uses the taxpayers money for non school related issues!!
FJH is a fantastic school! Academics, sports, fine arts--they have it all! When we moved to Houston from CA, we chose to live in Friendswood because of the school district. The high ratings and test scores combined with the small size looked promising. This school has not only met, but exceeded our expectations. Our son has always been an honor roll student, but needed a little extra support because of the disparity between CA and TX public education. The teachers and staff are both professional and accessible. They nurture the student as a whole person as well as academic achievement and personal responsibility. Our son is excited about going to high school next year and we are so thankful it will be in this award winning school district. We know he will be well prepared for college in four years.
