Framingham High School Reviews

The education at FHS is standard. I have met a handful of teachers at this institution who genuinely want to see their students succeed and excel post-high school. However, there are a great deal of teachers who are rather harsh on their students, specifically the English and math department. I moved to Framingham after middle school and I have to say the school is not as welcoming as they seem to be. As I lived in a predominantly white and Jewish neighborhood in MA prior to moving to Framingham, the hospitality and gratitude of my former neighborhood does not compare to Framingham. The high school specifically praises its diversity that they overlook that they are not inclusive. As a student of color, I received experienced several micro-aggressions at the HS. Framingham has racial incidents outside HS too. Overall, I received the education I needed to succeed in my post-secondary studies but Framingham has some serious work to do. They could start by getting a bigger high school.

My experience at FHS was awesome, especially due to my caring peers and the supportive faculty and staff. The diversity of FHS allowed for dynamic class discussions that involved a wide variety of individual perspectives and life experiences. As a larger high school, FHS provided me with many opportunities to take advantage of, such as the practical and fun classes in the Family and Consumer Sciences department. Overall, the people and opportunities at FHS contributed to my positive high school experience there.
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!
