We graduate students who are prepared with the critical thinking skills and resiliency to be successful after high school in their chosen paths. We trust and care for each other and celebrate each other’s successes. At FDSH, there is something for everyone: we offer over 200 courses, including a rich selection of electives for career and interest exploration.
