10 Parent Reviews for Fernley High School

The dress code is getting out of hand. I understand no spaghetti straps ect., I also understand the two finger strap rule. Now it's no sleeveless tops. They must be at least cap sleeves. Even in the sixies, it was considered appropriate to wear short sleeve shirts. At 80 or 90 degrees the only thing ...  Read more

This school needs academic improvement overall. Many of the teachers seem like they are there only to collect a paycheck. I am moving to Reno before my next child gets to high school!

I think there needs to be improvement all around at this school. I do think the new principal has his hands full. My biggest complaint has to be lack of communication from teachers. They have power school but yet its not always updated and its very hard to rely on. I guess the old fashion phone calls ...  Read more

Too many administrative changes over past 5 years - lead to lack of real direction. Special Ed. programs are opting for Adjusted diploma's over educating to a testing level.

Frenley high school has great teaches and they are really nice and the school system is great. There are some rules i don't agree with and there should be more freedom. Other then that i love it.

Our daughter has had some excellent teachers. She has played on varsity soccer for two years and this year the coach is doing a great job. We are seeing many improvements in school programs as well as academic programs.

This school has some of the highest gains in math achievement in the state! There has been zero turnover in the math department for the last three years. Statewide, passing the math exam has been tough, but FHS made a 5% gain in first-time pass rates last year. Less than 1% of the senior class failed ...  Read more

The school has very low math scores and a high number of students not passing the math proficiency due to inappropriate curriculum. The math department cannot keep teachers. Discipline is inconisitent and not enough is done for students who violate school rules. I would be happy to give examples if ...  Read more
