FHS is a great place! The academics are stellar (but pretty competitive) and I am going to college knowing that I am prepared to excel in my future endeavors. Our administration is the greatest. They truly put the students first. The attention to safety reform sticks out as an example of their incredible work. The big thing I would like to see change is the campus culture. Many of the students don't realize how privileged they are, and that can be a cause for concern. Regardless, I love Friendswood and wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

Safety is a priority on campus. The school has an alert system which relies heavily on students to report incidents or suspicious activity. The school could do better in terms of training teachers for their jobs. While most teachers want to see their students succeed, some teachers treat their high school students like incapable elementary schoolers. Preparing seniors for college is also a priority for Friendswood high school, however some teachers overstep and incessantly push college onto students who would not prefer to take that educational route. Overall, Friendswood high school has a tight community, and I feel privileged to be able to attend this high school.
Everybody knows everybody at Friendswood High School. The teachers care about your success and love to help students succeed. No matter what interests or hobbies you have, you can find a club, group, or team that fits! Safety is a big concern for the administration and they are constantly looking at ways to improve in this area.
