Farragut High School Reviews

I've gone to Farragut High my whole life, but I have never stayed in the same friend group, extra curricular activities, electives, etc. There are so many people to meet and things to experience here. I have tried all kinds of things, like marching band and ROTC. Everything is worth trying, it makes you a well rounded person. Whether I pursue activities and clubs Farragut has to offer, I'm glad to have had the experience. And the education is great! If I had not gone to Farragut, I wouldn't be nearly as matured mentally. My friends and family that have been educated elsewhere don't know things that I know, simply because they weren't taught. It's hard; I complain about the homework all the time. But at the end of the day, I'm glad I'm learning.
Review Farragut High School
Farragut High School is a highly academically competitive school. Due to its students' and teachers' diligence, the environment is intellectually stimulating and motivating. However, the school administration sometimes fails to provide equal opportunities for its students, such as providing college information to graduating seniors. At times, there is a severe lack of communication to students and teachers by the school administration regarding irregular class schedule changes. In addition, due to the lack of funding by Knox County Schools, the building and school materials have not been updated, but computer science classes and libraries provide new and useful technology.
I graduated from Farragut High School in 2012, while my brother graduated in 2015. It was a wonderful public school. I had excellent teachers who were dedicated to the needs of their students. Over the past several years, the administration of the school has declined, but the school is still highly rated. Farragut offers a great selection of honors, AP, and dual enrollment courses that prepare students for college. The school tends to have a reputation for being a bit elitist, though the school is relatively diverse considering the fact that the suburbs of Knoxville are not very diverse in general.
