On the Field and in the Classroom—FMHS Is on the Move
Now they want you to join them
Cheer Captain Bailey Vlach: “I’m in cheer because I love to get my peers excited for sports events. I love cheer because I love to be loud and energetic to pump up the crowd with my team. I’m starting a new legacy in my family in the hopes that my children will follow. I live in Lockwood Valley and was born and raised up here. [Reported by Tony Levesque]
AP Classes Save College Tuition
Reported by Anthony Sabe, FMHS Principal
Careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature is the center of the Advanced Placement (AP) Literature and Composition course at Frazier Mountain High School (FMHS).
Instructor Yvette Heasley helps students deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure. Structure, style and themes as well as figurative language, imagery, symbolism and tone are all observed.
Students read literary works from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries. If they score 3 to 5 on the AP Literature and Composition course exam, they may receive college credit, lowering costs during their freshman year.
The AP U.S. History class offers FMHS students a college course in high school. A good score on the AP exam in March 2012 provides students with college credit, saving both the tuition and the time that the course in college would cost them.
The AP program taught by Instructor John Domke teaches analytical skills and understanding for critical thinking in the field, so students can present reasoning and factual evidence in persuasive essays.
