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.
We are adding an exciting new Construction Pre-Apprenticeship Program at Federal Way High School that will provide students opportunities for preferred entry into the Electricians, Laborers, and Carpenters Union apprenticeships. Some of the other programs that are available at Federal Way High School are: 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.
As the start of the 2021-22 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:
- Five valedictorian graduates with a perfect cumulative 4.0 GPA completing the most challenging courses offered;
- One ACT 6 full scholarship award recipient;
- Four Washington State Opportunity Scholarship recipients;
- One Dell Scholar scholarship award recipient;
- Multiple D1, D2, and other athletic scholarships in volleyball, football, softball, soccer, and baseball;
- 100% of the AVID senior class was accepted to a university;
- Air Force JROTC Cyber Patriot Team placed third in WA State;
- 20 graduates earned the Cambridge AICE Diploma; and
- The Class of 2021 received over $3.1 million dollars in total grants and scholarships
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 a great school!
Dr. Matt Oberst
