Do not send your children to this school and if you are a teacher looking for a job stay far away from this school it isn't worth what you will have to face. The teachers try their best and there are some wonderful teachers at this school but they are overburdened due to the unethical practices of the principal. You only have to look at the test scores to see that this is not a place for your child if you care about their education.

This school is horrible. The Principal doesn't know what he's doing and is honestly a little immature. The teachers do not look like they enjoy their jobs and it reflects onto the student. If you can choice enroll anywhere else do it. I feel bad for the students who have to go there. Their futures don't seem very bright.
Both my children attended this school last year. Administration staff was mediocre. But my son's fifth grade teacher Mr. C was sensational at turning my son's attitude towards school around. It not the school but the wonderful teacher that has made a difference!!!!!"
Do NOT send you child to this school. MY child has attended this school for the last 3 years k-2nd grade and is far below where she should be. I have written notes called and all but begged for communication with the staff. I get no response. We are very uninformed we get newslewtters AFTER events have taken place or with incorrect information. I am trying at this time to do everything possible to get my child out of this school this year. DON'T do it- we have a right to move our children out of low performing schools. I just found this out and I am going to see that it happens. This school should be closed.... it is shameful
My daughter goes to this school. Federal hights Elem. is the reason why people put there children in private school!! Her tearch is great but the administration is lacking. They take no responsible actions in the safty or in communcation to the parents of problems that arize. We live in state were a great tragidy happen. Saftey should be at the top of every schools list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I like this school. My son comes home from school with daily homework and happily talks about his day. The school does not only focus on academics but community involvement as well. The staff and faculty are great with the students.
I.ve had 2 children attend FHE. We have always had great teachers they have always informed me on what's going on. My husband and myself have attended field trips we've always had behave children. I would give all the staff at FHE an A++
We absolutly love FHE they have a wonderful academic program and the teachers are very patient understanding and have a passion for what they are doing. Our son loves the music classes as well as the art programs.
It has been my experience that many of the teachers have lost their interest in the development of children. It seems that they have a fair amount of older teachers with little or no patience with the students. Frustration levels are high and the focus is not so much on academics as it is each child's personality traits. Maybe this would account for such low academic scores.
