  • I am a sophomore student here at fowler high school and as an observer I would like to say that this is a very safe environment and the best part of our school is that no individual is left out...We are all like a big family i mean don't get me wrong we have our problems but don't all people and all school. I don't feel that people should look at our school as a threat to the community because we work so hard to change the peoples perspective about us. There a lot of highly educated students here Teens who can have the opportunity to go to amazing colleges for example,Cornell,Duke,or maybe even Yale. Honestly we the student Of Fowler high school are not a threat to the community or the environment we are constantly doing fund raisers and promoting events in order to get our peers involved in the new revolution the new direction of life for the better for our children and our futures!
