The experience of all students at FHS is made rich by the diversity of race, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds of our students and families. Fremont students learn everyday to live in a world where those around them bring to the table a variety of beliefs, values, experiences and worldviews; and to seek from this diversity ways to grow as an individual and to contribute to making the world a better place for all. The diversity of our student body helps prepare students for the world beyond high school.
FHS receives federal, state, and local funds targeted specifically to serve students who struggle academically because they are not yet adept at using English in academic settings and/or have not had opportunities to learn that have been available to other students. Funds for these programs are over and above those provided to all other schools in the Fremont Union High School District. The staff has put into place a number of classes, programs, and support systems to help struggling students, and we are seeing promising movement in some areas.
However, these focused efforts do not come at the expense of providing high quality programs to other students. Rigor and high academic standards are an integral part of all classes and students have open access to all honors and Advanced Placement courses.
“Fremont High School has given me the confidence to achieve greater things. The rumors that are going around saying that Fremont students “can’t succeed’ are false. FHS is the place where ALL students are accepted. Everyone is given the opportunity to learn. Everyone is given the encouragement to want to succeed despite what others say. Fremont High School is the school where these unrecognized students get the opportunity to be more than they ever imagined.”

“FHS was the place that first taught me how to work with a diverse group of people. My peers all had a wide variety of different personalities. I learned how to accept people for their differences and use those differences to strengthen a group; I learned what it took to become a good leader. I also met a few teachers at FHS that would become lifelong mentors for me, teachers that told me I had talent and that I could go far. I found people that would always believe in me and friends that would last me for a lifetime.”
