    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Friendswood was a pretty great one. I was involved in a lot of activities such as Varsity Basketball, Marching/Concert Band, Track, and Safe School Ambassadors. They kept me pretty busy and if I could do it all over again I would still pick to go to this school because there are lasting memories that I have made there such as being State finalists in Band and going to the regional tournament for basketball. What makes this school so great is their Mustang spirit. Even if you don't play a sport or do anything noteworthy, you still have great pride in what our principal calls "the number one school in the state".
