Falls Church High School 4

The staff are always friendly and go out of their way to make you feel more comfortable. The school population is relatively small meaning it's easier to make it onto sports team and try new things. Having a smaller class body also make it easier to make friends. Teachers really push for good grades and to study hard which is great! The only downside is that the school is really rundown and it's in serious need of a renovation. New technology will help improve the school and moral.

Great school! Falls Church HS has a broad range of Honors and AP curricula, including various excellent computer science (CS) offerings. The diverse student body ranges from all economic strata, cultures and races. The school encourages focus on academic success, and college preparatory education. The school offers college placement exam prep classes, hosts various tutoring programs by Honor Society members (National, Math, Language, etc), and Saturday study. FCHS' technology, CS and STEM education & extracurricular offerings are getting national attention, and has witnessed widespread participation by girls through its Girls in Tech (GiTech) club. FCHS has an active CyberPatriot team competing in cybersecurity competitions, 3D Game Design (working on the Unity game engine), and a strong Robotics Club providing project-based learning opportunities, getting students to work in cross-disciplinary teams. Robotics hosted an NXT/Sumobot Competition in October 2014, fielded a FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team, and several VEX Robotics Competition teams (one advanced to the Virginia State Tourney in 2015). Students participate in DC area Hackathons such as PilotDC at Microsoft.

Falls Church High School is a great place to go to school! In general the teachers genuinely care about the success of their students and are willing to stay after school to help us. Because FCHS is smaller than other FCPS schools, there are increased opportunities to participate in sports and clubs. The smaller student body also results in a stronger sense of community. One downside is that we have not been renovated in a long time and the school is becoming worn down.

The school has gotten way too crowded over the years, the staff is not very efficient, and it needs a lot of remodeling . The teachers and classes are overall okay.

We are a very diverse school. It's really small and unique. Most of our teachers are amazing and some not so amazing. We are surrounded by a good environment.

It's a good school with some pretty great teachers. Offers many classes and academies to allow students to choose from a wider variety of programs and studies. With more money from the government to purchase more technologies, such as computers, 3-D printers, and better internet; it will greatly improve the educational experience for students attending Falls Church HS in the future.

Its diverse, not as sanitized as it should be, the school is very small with class averaging 300 students per grade, there are many students who don't bother to participate in events and downgrades the school.
