Unique school to say the least, everything in this school is done in best interest of the student body. Academics is incredibly lackluster, one can soundly say this school will leave you incredibly unprepared for college. In summary this school faces all the challenges of a small town school. There was once a geometry class taught by a history teacher to then later being taught by substitute teacher and a para educator.

I graduated from FHS in 2018, and with my freshman year in college now over I can more clearly see what makes FHS special, and where it lacks. There is no place on Earth as tight knit and giving as the community of Forks. Unfortunately, that tight knit atmosphere also leads to exclusion for new-comers. The school's academics are poor, but steps are being taken, and the opportunities for courses did grow immensely in my four years there. The staff generally cares, though the administration focuses too much on just getting kids to graduate. Overall I loved my time at FHS, but there is plenty of room to grow as an institution.
I loved the experiences I made with friends and watching the games, as well as all of the learning opportunities that came with the fun. I however did not like nor respect the favoritism played throughout the school by all members of the faculty.
