Farragut High School Reviews

There are wonderful and caring teachers in almost every classroom of FHS that truly care about there students. The academic opportunities are the best in the county, I believe that they currently have 31 available AP courses students can partake in. The only issue is that there have been certain problems with administration, especially newly introduced rules that have caused tension between them and students. Such as sexist dress code changes, the redirection of the fine arts’ funds (a very poorly funded area already) to sports and academics, and the general mishandling of very stressful situations.

It's a wonderful school and I have really enjoyed my time here. I mean what can I say? It's ranked around top 5 in the state so you know that the academics are top notch. Teachers are friendly and helpful and there are a huge variety of classes to choose from. For example, I am taking mythology this semester and it's an interesting class for sure. Farragut offers like 20-something AP classes and they can be challenging especially the STEM courses. There are multiple clubs meeting every day and sports are fun. We won the state football championship a while back. I would say that I 100% feel confident for college because of the support I have received here.
I love the diversity and the available activities, clubs, and sports for the students. The teachers provide an atmosphere where learning is encouraged. They provide before and after school tutoring assistance to help the student become successful. The school does a great job preparing the graduating students for college life after high school. The administrators create an safe and atmosphere.
