Falmouth High School Reviews

For the most part, Falmouth is great. The academics are terrific, except in some classes. The teachers are personable, except for a few. The clubs and activities are fun, except when there's no room for creativity. It's a great school but it's not perfect. The administration is wonderful about addressing an issue, but only if it comes to their attention. Often times, they don't even know there is an issue until a student or another faculty member informs them. However, as a student, I feel extremely safe in the school and feel as if I can talk to majority of my teachers if I need advice or just a minute to blow off some steam. There are so many opportunities that Falmouth offers it's students and if in ten or twnety years, if I end up living in Maine, I will most likely send my kids to Falmouth.

I just recently graduated from Falmouth. Although I received a wonderful education and loved almost every single one of my teachers, some of the kids in this school are really awful. There is almost no diversity, and if you don't play sports, you might have a hard time fitting in. There is definitely a lot of cliques, and many kids are not very welcoming at all, especially if you come in later in the year.. just something to think about. I loved the guidance office and I had some great conversations with some of the staff. Teachers, like I said, are almost all amazing
Falmouth High School has definitely prepared me very well for college; the teachers are amazing- supportive, interested in their students' lives, and highly knowledgeable- and there are so many opportunities available. The students are high-achieving and intelligent for the most part. The students are competitive however and the recent influx of students has caused some space issues, mostly because the building is poorly designed and was not built to accommodate the amount of students that it houses.
