    Scores Highest in the County on Mackinac Center's Performance Report Card

     Report Card

    Farwell High School was the only high school in the county to earn a B on the 2018 Michigan Public High School Context and Performance Report Card published by the Mackinac Center. The report card is designed to measure high school performance. FHS was ranked 145 out of 674 school 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.

    Juniors Perform Higher Than State Average on 2018 PSAT

    Results are in and our current junior class, last year's sophomore class, has a higher mean total score average than the state and the same average for the nation. Farwell scored a total mean average of 930, matching the national average and outscoring the state average of 924.
    The assessment is broken down into two scores with Reading/Writing and Math. The data below shows the mean math scores for Farwell High School of 468 whereas the state was 453 and the nation was 460. A definite celebration for the hard work the students and staff have put in over the years. Similarly, the Reading/Writing for Farwell High School was 462 which is not far from the state score of 466 and nation score of 470.
    These juniors will take the SAT (a college acceptance state assessment) in April and we are working hard to maintain mean averages above the state and nation. Currently, most of our juniors are enrolled in a SAT Prep course which prepares them with math and English refreshers as well as SAT prep work from Khan Academy and College Board. This spring, we also expect great results from our current 8th, 9th, and 10th graders as they will be taking the PSAT.
