  • This district is falling under the same category as the state in general, enough politics attempt to plan education, education will fail. This school is no different than any other, administration are weak, teachers are struggling, financially and emotionally, and parents are clueless.

  • The school is okay and is getting better as the years go by . The teacher are getting strickter . The kids get away with way less then the used to 3 years ago . The graduation rate is getting higher and higher each year . Some of the teachers aren't the best but the school over all is getting better . I think this school is okay to send your kids too .

  • 65% of kids that should be going to FUSD are not! Do not send your kids to FUSD of any sort. Great teacher's with poor Administration support, from School Board President to Superintedants. The Principals have their hands tied behind their backs with threats from School Board President Rose Monks.
    They all care about themselves and not the kids. Graduation rate is horibble. Send all your kids elsewhere if you care about their saftey and future!

  • Mr.Fitch is freaken awesome. He makes class fun, hes good at teaching and hes my favorite teacher out off all of the other teachers i have. He makes us concentrate and we actually learn cool things in the class. His tests are very easy not like all the othr teachers.
