A. Although the academic courses aren't too bad, because FHS is an independent school, its courses don't exactly go into depth. Their language department mainly only hosts Latin, Spanish, and ASL, while the French classes aren't entirely supported. Their marketing classes, social studies courses (like Psychology,) and English courses don't go into much depth. B. Frenship only really supports traditional sports, so if your child is into football, soccer, volleyball, or track, basketball, they're fine. It would be nice if they had more individual sports teams (like martial arts or other) or lacrosse, but they don't. A yoga class would also be appreciated, but yoga classes are rare (despite their great health benefits.) Although Frenship has a great band, their band instructors are not respected among the students. The band is general, so if you don't want to take Jazz band or Classical band, too bad. It's all or nothing. They have recently included a guitar club, but other than that, there are NO orchestra at FHS or any other instrument instruction. Their clubs are general and don't have any group that focuses on charity. There's the typical FFA or JOSA or DECA, but any un-sponsored group isn't popular and doesn't really have a place in the school. The facilities are pretty good, and the custodians do a good job of keeping the place clean. There are enough bathrooms and enough hallway space to house the 2000 so kids in FHS. Unfortunately, the landscaping of FHS is terrible. (Actually, the landscaping of Lubbock is terrible. But FHS refuses to take care of the land or try to beautify their school at all.) There is only one cafeteria (with your typical terrible cafeteria food.) The school is strict about no off-campus lunch, which has gotten a lot of stress over by students. The staff will NOT allow you to go outside to get fresh air or eat your lunch during your lunch period, no matter how beautiful the weather may be. They set up cameras, so the school should be able to trust us, but they don't. FHS rules are typical of West Texas...sexist. They have strict rules of piercings and hair on guys. There are rules against unnatural hair colors. Facial piercings are not tolerated, which is disappointing. It is understandable that tattoos should be under clothes, chains should be kept short, and shorts and skirts shouldn't be too short. Being a public school, FHS is disappointing. The teachers shouldn't be including religion and religious opinions into their discussions and daily lessons, but they do. Some even slip up about their racist view points or anti-gay feelings. (Though not all staff are like this.) Frenship really needs to work on this. There has been talk of unfair treatment that the FHS principal gives to her daughter. (Like the use of texting each other during class or allowing off-campus lunch.) The moral of students against their principal, Ms. Spicer, is low. The cops aren't as useful as they could be. Parents typically only are involved in the school if their child is part of a sport or part of a JV or Varsity cheerleading or Pom squad. Most other parents don't interact with the school regularly.
