The teachers are FANTASTIC but everything in or about the facility is disgusting. The hallways are abnormally crowded, people are extremely rude, and people get privileges they truly don't deserve. This place is NOT diverse, 49% white, but why does that matter?? It shouldn't. The people here are acceptable ...  Read more

My granddaughter goes there and my son once attended. My granddaughter is on the tennis team and is learning lots, and has great grades.

Federal Way is NOT perfect, but when it comes to being real, it's as real as it gets. Diversity is not the only key to a good enviorment, but acception to diversity is what matters most. The students can't be generalized, but when it comes to homosexuality, being black, white, asian, whatever... I think ...  Read more

this school is not a school that cares about student opinion anymore, if it ever did. the princapal has told students to not be rude, wile being extremely rude and saying we dont matter. the only reason she has not been caught is because nobody in that school district will listen.

As a student, high jumper, and cheerleader at Federal Way High School I must say that I love my school. We are very diverse and the several different groups get along very well. It's like a family atmosphere here. My teachers are always available to help me with work or just talk about my home life. ...  Read more

If you want a school where kids can get some of the best education in the Northwest enroll your child in the 'Cambridge Program' at FWHS. There isn't a program like this anywhere west of the Appalachians. This is a very unique opportunity for goal minded students and parents.

FWHS lacks in organization. The school has a huge problem with no crediting excused absences and teachers can't even get absences right. Don't let your child take college writing; my child worked 4 hours a night and hours on the weekend in that class and still got a c-. Now you wonder why they aren't ...  Read more
