I am the Career Coach at FHS. I work with student grade 8-12 on developing a pathway to college and career readiness. The graduating class of 2017 had 58 Seniors; of which 56 went on to college/university. The Teachers are eager to teach, and the kids actually want to learn. There are opportunity for concurrent credit with Southern Arkansas University Tech located in East Camden on a daily basis. A great school where you r child will fit in.
