    The Facing History School is a wonderful environment in which I graduated from in 2009! I was given some of the best opportunities in this school and I hope that fhs continues down the path to even greater success. It is a family oriented school and personal attention is given to each and every student. Choose FHS because it will give you the best posssible outcomes!!!!!
