Farragut High School Reviews
I learned a lot here. I made good connections in the art community and made a few long-term friends. I focused a lot on trying to master the highly competitive curriculum, and balancing a 5-day work schedule. I enjoyed going to games and school dances, as well as student-organized events such as open mic and improv shows. But at my senior year, a month away from graduation, I wish there hadn't been so many student suicides in one semester that nobody did anything about until the third. I wish the confederate flag flaunting students didn't spit racial slurs at my colored friends, and I wish my friends didn't get groped at parties by "Make America Great Again" yelling guys. But hey, at least we have good honors courses and we ranked 9th in Tennessee.
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.
The overall experience at Farragut High School is better than I would imagine the average high school life being. The exceptional academics and kind teachers make learning somewhat enjoyable, even in the most dreadful of subjects. However, the community at the school is lacking. Students are not encouraged to become apart of clubs or after school activities, as an emphasis is only put on grades and test scores. However, if needed, the staff is always willing to listen to concerns.
