The quality of the academics at FHS is fantastic. The The sports? Fabulous. Music Program? Very good. Extra curricular activities? by the bucketload. The Campus? supreme. Students are seemingly given the power to decide what they want to do with ther life (as long as the faculty agrees), and are encouraged to voice their opinions on world views, politics, and the way the school is run(unless it varies from the Teacher's opinion, in which they will strive their hardest to lure students to agree). Here at FHS, we believe "children are the future.... unless we can stop them now.
