  • This school use to an amazing place. I'm not so sure about now. I think some of the problems here are the students because it is safe to say that children are not they way they use to be. Therefore this causes the teacher and administration to act and treat students different.

  • FHS isn't nearly as bad as everyone tends to make it out to be. Sure some of the teachers cuss, but nothing worse than what students say in the halls. The Administration has no problem treating students like children though. Now we even have COLOR CODED BATHROOMS and you can only go to certain ones. I understand that they don't want people wandering, but there is a simple fix, let the seniors, who have run out of classes to take anyway be hall monitors and stop that from happening.
