Falmouth High has some of the best academic facilities including 3d printers and STEM labs. The teachers are mostly fantastic and the courses are both rigorous and cater to most fields of interest as they include forensic science, psychology, criminology, and anatomy. The arts program at the school is strong and the music programs are incredible with 4 different bands and multiple choruses that include a student-run acapella group. The district administration is known to be stubborn and uncooperative at times, however, the majority of the faculty are very understanding. There is a wide variety of sports, including a state chamption football team.

In short, Falmouth High School is a fine school to attend. The majority of teachers are earnest and encouraging when it comes to the success of their students. With the math department, getting a good teacher is hit-or-miss, but both the english and science departments are great. As far as administration goes, the current administrators (as of 2018) are a bit strict but they appear to have noble intentions. The custodial staff works very hard so that Falmouth High School is rarely spotless. Like most schools, the cafeteria food isn't 5 stars, but it is edible and offers meals for a variety of diets (vegetarian, gluten free, etc).
I'm a rising senior, and my overall experience was pretty good! Most of the teachers are genuine and want to help you succeed, and there's a competitive atmosphere. However there are probably more people at the school either don't try at all/don't care about their education, than hard working people.
