I loved Future's High School! The overall educational opportunities available are amazing, the teachers are interactive and help the students that seek it, and the staff are probably the nicest people there. The school teaches Honors English, AP Calculus AB and BC, Ceramics, adv and beg Art, Engineering, even Russian and Spanish. I would recommend Futures to anyone who wants to start High School.

I've attended schools within the Twin Rivers Unified School District my entire educational career. Being part of this school system for so long, I am confident that my review is valid and reliable. I would have to say that Futures High school was not a stereotypical high school, like the ones seen in movies. This school was small (300 people), and did not have many opportunities for students. We did not have an ROP program, we did not have clubs, and sport teams only began to be introduced during my sophomore year! Even though the school was not very advanced, the community was very warm and sympathetic. For example, having a small graduating class brought the graduates to a very tight bond. All in all, the benevolent staff and the small classes encouraged amiable relationships, while not having access to advanced academia.
Futures High School is very diverse. People may refer to it as a F.O.B school because it does mostly consist of Russians and Ukrainians, but that doesn't mean that work is done easy. Our teachers push us to get things done. They are also very encouraging and caring. If they see that something is wrong with a student, they will sit down and talk with him/her about life. The teacher always makes time for the student, especially if that student struggles with a problem or has some sort of question. We also have many clubs. Some include leadership, National Honors Society, Christian club, a cafe run by students, and more. Futures may be smaller in amount, but it truly feels like one big family that any person would want to be a part of.
