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.
The on-going construction of our brand new school and campus has been very exciting! Some of the recent programs that have started are: Pro-Start Culinary Program, Advanced Manufacturing / Engineering Program, and Coding / Game Design and computer science courses. Last year, we started our Sports Medicine program. In addition, we are an AVID National School of Distinction and National Demonstration School. Thank you to our families and the community for the new Federal Way High School and all of the new opportunities it provides our students.
As the start of the 2018-19 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:
- Over $2.6 million in scholarships received by our senior students;
- An ACT 6 full scholarship award recipient;
- Air Force JROTC received the Distinguished Unit with Merit Award;
- Speech and Debate WA State competitors;
- The Choir Program earned the Sweepstakes for Choral Program and Adjudicator Awards for Choir from the World Strides Heritage Music Festival;
- ASB Pacific Islander Club finished first in the Annual Samoan Arts and Academics Competition;
- A WA State Champion in Girls’ Wrestling;
- WA State Champions in Boys Track 4x100m relay team;
- Boys Basketball finished second in State;
- Baseball finished third in State;
- Girls Wrestling Team finished fourth in State; and
- Five teachers earned their National Board Certification
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!
