Foster High School Reviews
Rating 3.75 out of 5 478 reviews
Wonderful teachers, great education! My son enjoyed attending and playing sports at Foster High School. He met many lifelong friends.
We used to live in TX when our kids were in elementary school, we moved out of State to Minnesota, my kids had a good experience there, but this year at Foster High School for my son and Whertimer Middle school for my daughter has been the best yet. Both my kids are doing great academically, they are being challenged and they both participate in extra-curricular activities. It is a very competitive school system in sports. They are not as big as other high schools or middle schools in the area, but I think that is actually a good thing. They adapted super fast to their new environment, friends, teachers, and the rigor of the classes. We are very happy and would recommend these schools to anyone moving to the area.
My educational journey at Foster High School has been fairly positive. While that may be the case for my journey, you can see clearly in the people around the school that we are not the same. The school doesn't necessarily have the right mindset to help students in mental need. I would like Foster High School to continue making positive strides towards students mental health.
