At Friday Harbor High School you're given a lot of resources for success, and most of the teachers are very available to put in extra time and make sure you're keeping up with the coursework. In my experience, the school could improve on engaging with the students about their plan for after high school. While they do a good job of this with 11th and 12th graders, the younger students would benefit from more help from the school in regards to this.

Small town atmosphere, so everyone will know who you are. Very engaging class sizes and decent school lunches. The administration and councilor will help you prepare for college if that is what you intend to pursue!
Friday Harbor is just an average high school. The diversity is pretty disappointing and the teachers leave much to be desired (although Ms. Busch is awesome). The food is okay but other than sports, the school really doesn't seem to care about clubs and other extracurriculars. It's fine.
