    "People don't really judge at Foss. So you feel very welcome . At Foss I think they should change the bathroom rules and be less strict."

    "I loved attending Foss High School because of the ib program or international baccalaureate program. It really prepared me for college."

    "Henry Foss was an alright school. A veritable cesspool of diversity that allowed anyone with the will to work find suitable rewards for doing so. What it lacked in facilities it made up with gusto. Stemming from student and teacher alike. Of course there was the small percentage of students who were in school to avoid a court hearing but the rest of us all ways tried to cohabitate. Sometimes even stirring in them a curiosity for academics that was not their previously. The food could have been better and the library more detailed but in my mind that only hindered the students marginally."

    "I love Foss High. Almost everything about it is great starting with the IB Diploma Program to the Teachers and the Admins. They are always trying to help you get further in your future. The AFJROTC Program is also amazing! However it is not the school to go for sports. All of their genral sports teams are not very good but if you look past the sports Foss High does great academically no doubt. One of the best things at Foss is probably the diversity of race and of culture. Every year they accept a large number of exchange students from all around the world and they are always fully welcomed at Foss High School. Love Foss, Falcon Pride!! #FossStrong"

    "I was in the I.B. Program, which was mostly really good except for one history teacher, who gave up on teaching and let the kids run rampant. I didn't learn anything from that class that year."
