Framingham High School is a diverse place where you are guaranteed to meet all students of different races, beliefs, and experiences growing up. Compared to other towns near us, the student body at Framingham High School is much more diverse and much more engaged in school spirit. This school is one of few in the state that truly doesn't have grade inflation; an A is an A. and must be earned. This school is one of the few "real" schools in the state, and I am proud of being a flyer!

Framingham High school is an exceptionally average school. It has a significant amount of classes that can help you expand your horizons. Everything else is average. Sports are stellar, but only because it has all the budget, leaving the other departments relying on the teacher's personal funds. Arts=neglected, history/math textbooks=outdated/old, and science department's labs are circa 1985. Not to mention the complete lack of thermal regulation throughout the entire building. Just ask the English department, where summers drive the teachers to frantically rent out classrooms in the only hall in the entire school with air conditioning. All in all, it is no one's first choice, but at least we have 'Flyers Pride'.
FHS is a good school, and you can get a lot out of it if you choose the right classes for you. Teachers are all for the most part very friendly and knowledgeable. The bathrooms are not that great, however, and this has become a worsening problem. Besides that, the school is pretty good with academics and a variety of after school sports and clubs. The counseling staff is great, but new rules have made it very difficult to personalize your schedule if you happen to change your mind as to what classes you’d like to take, which can be frustrating.
