Principal's Message

  • Matt Oberst

    Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,


    As the 2021-22 school year winds down, it is important to reflect on all of the challenges and triumphs this year has brought. We have had many unprecedented challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic and safety protocols. Regardless of these challenges, our students have demonstrated unwavering determination or “grit” which makes all the difference.


    Federal Way High School had many wins and triumphs this year, some of them were:

    • Seven valedictorians with a perfect cumulative 4.0 GPA completing the most challenging courses offered;
    • One ACT 6 full scholarship award recipient;
    • Multiple athletic scholarships in Wrestling, Baseball, Track, Volleyball, Football, and Soccer;
    • Girls Bowling Team earned the State Academic Championship with a 3.96 team GPA—for the third year in a row;
    • Three State Champions in Boys and Girls Track;
    • All of the AVID senior class was accepted to a university, college, or secondary institution;
    • Federal Way High School is also an AVID National Demonstration School and AVID National Site of Distinction;
    • Two State Champions in Speech and Debate;
    • Band earned an “Excellence” rating at the Valley Region Band Contest;
    • Air Force JROTC earned the Distinguished Unit With Merit Award out of 870 units worldwide;
    • 10 students earned the Cambridge AICE Diploma;
    • Federal Way High School is also a Cambridge International School Demonstration Center;
    • The start of the Construction Pre-Apprenticeship Program; and
    • The Class of 2022 received over $5.4 million dollars in total grants and scholarships


    I want to thank all of our students, staff, and families for all of your hard work and dedication. Federal Way High School is a great school!


    Thank you, 

    Dr. Matt Oberst
