The report card is designed to measure high school performance. FHS was ranked 145 out of 674 schools and at the 79th percentile. This report is a school-level assessment of academic performance based on a four-year average of state standardized tests. This report card is unique in that it takes into consideration the socioeconomic status of students when assessing an individual school’s performance.|
