This school is excellent in many ways. It has the number one Boys Basketball team in the state, top teams in countless other sports, the top Speech&Debate team in the state, one of the top choirs, a strong robotics organization, a well-organized and led ASB, it is an AVID demonstration school, and over 80 different activities that students can join. Aside from the great activities, it is one of the only high school in WA to offer the Cambridge International program and its diploma to students. The teachers have an average top rating in all ways. It is also the 7th most diverse High School in the United States, and everyone benefits from an open, accepting, incredibly diverse environment. An excellent place.
I love this school! I'm glad they're finally rebuilding it! The campus is going to look amazing! All of there sports teams are amazing and they faculty is so friendly. I don't understand why people think it has such a high crime rate because it doesn't! Everyone fits in, nobody is left out! This school is amazing! Go Eagles!
I currently go to FWHS. I am only a freshman but so far in my experience i have learned that fed is a good place to go. We have a lot of good programs here and really good coaches. As a student i am involved in many sports and programs that they have here at fed. When i go to fed i feel safe. The staff is amazing. Being a student i feel like there is a connection between the teachers and students. The students are willing to learn and the teachers love their jobs. As a Cambridge student though i feel like i am not being challenged enough. All my classes are easy, especially since this new grading system. Sometimes i feel like i'm learning middle school all over again. Another flaw is the building. It is falling apart. Fire alarms randomly going off, no heat, clocks breaking down, tiles falling, leaks. All of those are some of the things i have witness during my 6 months here. Recently there was a levy for our school to be rebuilt and sadly it did not pass. We now have to make due with what we have left of this school. Despite those flaws the atmosphere here at fed is amazing. Many kids are kind and respectful. From what i have heard and experienced fed is an overall great school.
The teachers are FANTASTIC but everything in or about the facility is disgusting. The hallways are abnormally crowded, people are extremely rude, and people get privileges they truly don't deserve. This place is NOT diverse, 49% white, but why does that matter?? It shouldn't. The people here are acceptable at times, but the school itself is a piece, and the whole establishment is practically useless. I am NOT challenged in any class because the requirements to be in it are to pass the state tests...So average people end up in advanced classes. I'm in tenth grade, and we were going over how to write a persuasive essay in my Cambridge english class. I LEARNED HOW TO DO THAT IN 5TH GRADE!!! WHY DO THEY ALLOW STUDENTS TO BE IN CLASSES THEY DON'T DESERVE TO BE IN?? I don't know why everyone's so prideful, this school is a dump. GO ROYALS!!
Federal Way is NOT perfect, but when it comes to being real, it's as real as it gets. Diversity is not the only key to a good enviorment, but acception to diversity is what matters most. The students can't be generalized, but when it comes to homosexuality, being black, white, asian, whatever... I think Federal Way is one of the best schools in the area for you to feel like you can be yourself.
This school is great. It's a good place to get a good educations and a good place to do sports. Cambridge program is very unique around the Northwest. The rumors about this school being really dangerous and such is not true. The teachers are cool and the principle as well. I know this school is the best school in the Federal Way district. I would definitely recomment you to go to this school.
