Overall it's an amazing school for an accelerated student, sometimes (especially at the beginning of the year) I felt as though I was being slowed down because the teachers wanted to ensure other students weren't failing. Some teachers I feel show favoritism and treat students differently. This school isn't very diverse :/. The lunch is very good and spirit weeks and special events are very much looked forward to. There's a lot of homework and you have to be on top of your assignments but it's a good school. I've enjoyed my high school experience so far!

At FSWCHS,
I really appreciated the diversity, respect, and enthusiasm each teacher and staff provides to the students. Being that only 100 students are in each class, this school is like a tight-knit family. They provide additional academics service to help students further their understanding and a lot of after school activities. They are and "active" school in the sense that sport and exercise is an important part of there school. Overall, having the opportunity to graduate with a AA degree (FREE COLLEGE) is amazing! Highly Recommended!
I am a senior here at FSW. I entered the dual enrollment program that the school offers when I was an entering Junior. This school is absolutely amazing! It is not too large of a school so I find they are very personable. Everyone is so nice here, and treats us like college students. I guess that makes sense because I take all of my classes at the college but even with that option, our principal takes the time to visit us and we still go over to the high school for certain things. Overall, the dual enrollment program offered by the school really makes me feel like I'm preparing for college at the next level. Great school.
