I like the amazing teachers and faculty that the school has and the great learning environment that the school has made! Although there isn't much diversity at Friendswood High School, I am nevertheless honored to have attended THE number one high school in the state.

I loved Friendswood ISD. You get that small town feel from knowing just about everyone in your class to the staff coming out and supporting students throughout your K-12 education but large enough to be diverse and offer the competition and growth that comes from larger ISD. You have more exposure to opportunities outside of the small town bubble when you have staff like those at FISD who encourage students from a young age to advance themselves and continue their education on past HS. Students are pushed physically and academically to push past what we thought our potential was to achieve more than we imagined. My niece is now a part of the FISD and we can't wait to watch her grow here. I hope to have the same experience/growth for my own children someday and I look to find SDs that have build the same solid foundation that FISD instilled in me and my siblings. Thank you FISD!
The impression of FISD that has been left on my is both positive and negative. I've been blessed with some of the best teachers who have helped me significantly throughout my high school career and made sure to set me up for the future, but I've found that the administration is lacking in that way. Going to the counselors for help almost always ends in a short 5 minute session where you are told that there's nothing that can be done to help. It's kind of disheartening to be turned away from your one source for help, but at least I've learned to be more independent from this. Other than that, everything else runs pretty smoothly. The clubs and activities are limitless and well put together, making for an endless abyss of fun activities to fill your elective slots. So, in the end, my only complaint is that I wish the administration was more helpful and wouldn't rush you out of their office.
