Falmouth was an amazing highschool, the teachers were always willing to help you get extra access to whatever help you needed, they implemented at 30 daily "study period" for all students to make sure we had time to catch up on late or missing assignments, retake quizzes and tests and learn whatever we missed if we were previously absent. They have a variety of extracurriculars, clubs and teams and were always willing to add more

Falmouth High School, and the Falmouth Public School system as a whole were very good at preparing me for college. The teachers were consistently fantastic and really cared about making sure you learnt the material. There were many clubs and opportunities for advancement outside of the classroom. Athletics were average overall, but everyone could find something they were interested. Overall I was very happy to have attended FHS, and I feel it did a very good job preparing me for college.
I recently moved to the States and this school has been the best. The teachers are very encouraging, my guidance counselor and principals are very warm and friendly. At FHS the entire team wants the best for you, it’s all about effort, you put out your all and they meet you half way. The school has contributed to me adjusting so quickly and my upcoming success.
