Dear Parents and Guardians of Federal Way High School students, welcome back to school! I hope each of you had a summer filled with good times and positive memories. While you were away, Federal Way High School has been continuing to advance. Staff have attended many workshops and professional development opportunities to constantly improve curriculum and instruction. Also, the construction of the new building visibly progresses daily.
As the start of the 2016-17 school year begins, I would like parents, guardians, and students to be aware of and proud of the accomplishments completed last year and to challenge this year’s students to achieve even more.
Federal Way High School had many wins and triumphs last year, some of them were:
- Air Force JROTC received the Distinguished Unit Award;
- Over $4.7 million in scholarships received by senior students;
- 100% of the AVID senior class was accepted to a university;
- WA State Championship for the Boys Basketball Team, a State Champion Wrestler, State Championship for the Boys Track Team, and a State Champion in the Long Jump and Triple Jump;
- Two State Speech and Debate Champions; and
- The Choir Program earned a Silver award, Gold award, and won the Choral Sweepstakes Award at the Heritage World Strides Music Festival;
We are looking forward to a great 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!
Dr. Matt Oberst
