District Headlines & Features
Dear Eagle Families,
Student Led Conferences are November 8 in the evening, and November 9 and 10 all day. Please check to see what day and time your student will be presenting. The purpose of Student Led Conferences is for students to feel fully engaged and empowered to take an active role in their learning. Preparing for these conferences really started back in September, and as the semester has progressed, students have been collecting assignments and projects to show. In the end, we hope students will enjoy taking an active role in their learning. We are hoping for 100% attendance.
Federal Way High School has so much to celebrate. We offer a large variety of academic programs such as AVID, ASB, Cambridge, CTE, band, orchestra, fine arts, Air Force JROTC, and athletics, just to name a few.
We are very grateful for the support of the citizens of Federal Way. On October 17, 2016, students and staff moved into our new building which allows our students opportunities in:
- a ProStart Culinary program that allows students to be a culinary chef, create menus, count calories and nutrition information, catering, and the management and leadership of a restaurant
- expansion of our computer science classes such as web design, Game Design, and IT Academy where students receive industry standard certifications from Microsoft and more
- Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering, and Robotics programs that allows students the opportunities to solve “real world” problems and use the tools of engineers such as a water jet, CNC milling machine and lathe, 3D printers, and AutoCad software.
We have high expectations of our students and can now better support them as a result of all of the new opportunities our new building provides. Again, thank you very much to the community for supporting our future leaders.
This has been a great start to our school year. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. Federal Way High School is truly a great school!
