    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.

    Food: I like the food options offered at lunch but there are not many options for those who have a certain standard of food. There are lots of snacks but the times of the lunches are not the best.

    Sports & Fitness: Friendswood is a football oriented place, with clothes and groups dedicated to it and other sports. many students either play or support some form of sport and all of the facilities available are of a fairly good quality.
