Its an ok school, there are alot of haters at this school. Unless your white it is pretty hard to be a stand out student. The reason for that is racism. Anyways you want great schools Go to Santa Ana Ca and Orange county California. Its a better life over here!

I absolutely LOVE this school. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. My teachers are very wonderful and I love them all. I have friends that attend other schools in the county and they all say that FCHS is the best! Class of 2013!
