W.H. Ford High School Reviews

77 reviews
All Categories
Students are very clique-y. Teachers are mediocre with the exception of a few fabulous ones. Counselors are wonderful, but overworked. Administration is terrible at communication. There are very few AP classes, however the dual credit college program is amazing. For the size, the band is pretty large, and the theatre department is very involved. People here are very friendly, though.

W.H. Ford is a high school like no other, confident, caring and driven to see each and every one of their students succeed in life. W.H. Ford High School is a school that sees beyond what students have to offer, they what see what we don’t see in ourselves. From the custodians to our principal and everyone in between, Ford High School feels like my second home. I know I will be safe here, I know I will be valued. I think I speak for all of the Class of 2019 when I say that I am heartbroken that this will be my last year attending, I will miss seeing the friendly smiles that made us feel safe and cared for. Thank you FHS staff for all your hard work and all that you do for us, it doesn’t go unnoticed.
I loved Quinlan Ford, it gave me the best high school experience. The really focus on community. Going to Ford High School allowed me to participate in duel credit courses FOR FREE, which essentially lead to me graduating with my associates degree 1 week before high school graduation.
