As a college student, I can genuinely say that my high school prepared me for this journey. At the time, Frank H. Peterson was an "A" school and had many resources to prepare juniors and seniors for college. Although the college readiness courses were challenging, my amazing teachers motivated me every step of the way. The staff is fully committed to helping us (students, alumni, etc) excel in the real world. I have remained in contact with many of my teachers after high school. The relationship and overall experience has been great!

Frank H gives you every opportunity to be successful. Every academy has its own hands-on laboratory on campus and gives you real-world scenarios. Seems too good to be true? Well, of course. It's a high school and the community is rich and diverse and of course, there are conflicts within the student body. Cultural acceptance isn't really a strong suit here.
I've been here for 3 years now and I have always loved this school. The teachers are very helpful and actually care about the students success. There are many different academies for students to choose from and so many events that happen. The school has its own resturant, 'The Wright Place' that the culinary students are in charge of. The students and staff eat there often and the culinary academy even caters for other schools too. Lots of volunteering and club opportunites. Competitions too! I genuinely love my school so much.
