The school is all hype and no delivery. Unless your one of the chosen few, you will not get a quality education. The facilities are beyond awful. They do have some extracurricular activities. Awards and parental involvement is all limited and determined by a select few.

The quality is very selective and over hyped. They only help the ones they want to help and nobody else. The music and sports are very good at Farragut. There is nothing to offer extracurricular. They claim that they were awarded the blue ribbon about a decade ago, but that can be debated. Facilities and parental involvement are horrible.
