  • I am currently a student attending FMHS and I am in love with this school. The teachers are clearly knowledgeable in the courses the teach, the students are respectful to each other and adults, and the atmosphere is just so relaxing. That is, depending on how hard your classes may be. If you are an outstanding student who strives to achieve the best and top most grades; this is the school for you. It offers the I.B. program which is an internationally rigorous program that challenges your intellect ability. I am in the I.B. program and yes, I am consumed with about 5 hours or more homework a day, but it is all worth it. You have many classes to choose from in the IB curriculum with outstanding teachers that are enthusiastic about teaching. I would recommend this school for every student who wants to achieve academically in high school and eventually towards college. By the way, the I.B. program is a college level course and can be more difficult then many college courses that are offered in colleges.
