A safe and orderly school is of utmost importance at Fremont High School. The schoolwide theme of respect models respect for self, others, and school and manifests itself in a safer campus. This theme is part of zero tolerance presentations, counseling sessions, discipline conferences, academic conferences, leadership training, and more.
FHS is always in compliance with all laws, rules, and regulations pertaining to hazardous materials and state earthquake standards. Working in close collaboration with Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, annual Code Red disaster drills are implemented so that staff and students can be trained in how to respond to emergency circumstances.
For some parents who have not sent a student to high school, there may be a lingering perception that high school is not a safe place for students. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Erroneous misperceptions are not based in reality as attested to by these quotes from FHS parents and students:
“As for safety and gangs, my son laughs when I ask him about that. The only time he’s ever had trouble with bullies was in middle school. He is friends with kids from all grades, all ethnic groups, and feels comfortable with everybody.”
Lana Klier, parent of member of the FHS Class of 2012
“Maybe it is because the administration and staff work so hard to create an atmosphere of respect and tolerance, but all kids seem to fit in, even the kids who are a little different from the norm.”
Lisa Bonetti, parent of FHS Alumni
“After my son began at Fremont, I asked him how it was going. His response: ‘Great!’ Being extra inquisitive I asked him, ‘So, are the upper classmen being nice to all you new kids?’ His answer: ‘Mom, everyone there is so nice.’ Ironically, things weren’t going as smoothly for some of his friends that went to a different high school. They were having trouble fitting in, they did not feel welcome, and felt that the atmosphere was cliquey.”
Terry Chavez, parent of member of the FHS Class of 2013
