Principal's Message

  • Matt Oberst

    Dear students and parents,


    Welcome back to school! I hope each of you had a summer filled with great experiences and positive memories. During the summer, Federal Way High School staff have attended many workshops and professional development opportunities to constantly improve our curriculum and instruction. 


    Programs and courses: Some of the programs that are available at Federal Way High School are: Construction Pre-Apprenticeship Program, Pro-Start Culinary Program, Coding / Game Design and computer science courses, and Air Force JROTC. In addition, we are an AVID National School of Distinction, AVID National Demonstration School, and a Cambridge International School Demonstration Center.


    Student achievements: As the start of the 2022-23 school year begins, I would like parents 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:

    • Seven valedictorians with a perfect cumulative 4.0 GPA completing the most challenging courses offered;
    • One ACT 6 full university scholarship award recipient;
    • Multiple university 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;
    • Two State Champions in Speech and Debate;
    • Drama earned, “Outstanding Hair & Make-up Design by Students” for the musical, Seussical Jr. from the 5th Avenue High School Theatre Awards;
    • 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;
    • The start of the Construction Pre-Apprenticeship Program; and
    • The Class of 2022 received over $5.4 million dollars in total grants and scholarships

    We are looking forward to another great year.
