    Overall Experience: Friendswood High School has very intelligent students that strive to do their best in all that they do. This leads to fierce competition both in the academic arena and in the sports world. While some students may see this as a negative thing, it prepares us for the real world.

    Overall Experience: There are many departments that are excellent and have the support of many. The only thing that sets us back is the fact that the way that the school does everything is purely political and not solely based on talent.

    Overall Experience: Narrow-minded students but kindhearted teachers, lots of competition between only 5% of the class, and even within then, lots of people who cheat or work around that don't deserve to be where they are. Those that do complain a ton. Class rank and GPA is subject to inflation in some classes and severe deflation in others. Drug problems, but not taken good care of. Fun principal and lax management, but still sufficient.

    Overall Experience: I left my first high school to attend this high school. I can honestly say that I am now earning a great education, and I enjoy my time spent in the classroom setting. I have made some very great friends, and have rarely come across an out-right rude person. My overall experience at this high school has had a very positive effect on my life.

    Overall Experience: It was okay. At least I didn't peak in high school, so I have that going for me. Don't bring drugs on campus.
