Farragut High School has seen phenomenal Academic improvement over the last several years. It's a great school with a great staff and administration. They continue to try to deal with changing landscape of mental health, and I'm thankful for education that they offered. AP Capstone, Stem Certification, great academic results. They future looks bright.

Farragut has very little cultural diversity, and it shows in the attitudes of the students toward minorities. However, the school is big enough that everyone can find their people. The music and sports programs are great. Most teachers are great, but some are clueless. New administration is absolutely fantastic.

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.
