    "Firestone offers tremendous opportunities to its students. As an alumnus of the IB and performing arts programs, I had outstanding academic and extracurricular experiences."

    "Good school with good teachers but half the students dont act right. The teachers need to control their students so they arent ruining it for other people. Other than that its good."

    "I don't know who is in charge of it, but someone needs to look into a few of the teachers. Some are a bit crazy and probably shouldn't be teaching. Overall, even though I have had some dreadful teachers, I truly loved my experience at FHS. The school is huge and there are so many different groups of people that you will always find a group. I never myself had troubles with bullies; I wasn't the most social and really didn't hang out with people I didn't like... Haha. I had a few teachers in particular who I can honestly say were excellent people. Although I had some tragic experiences with certain teachers, a lot of them were exceptional people who taught me so much and really helped me with my life. Overall, I wouldn't change my FHS experience with anything. I am so thoroughly grateful that I chose this school. Thank you to all the teachers and principals who helped me so much! I truly don't think I would have succeeded without your help. :)"

    "Bad behaving, rowdy students. Not as good as it used to be. Was once excellent. Now is chaos. Inner city school. No class anymore."

    "Firestone has a large mix of good and bad. The I.B. program is wonderful, filled with hard working students that are pushed by very capable teachers ( my niece was in this program). The performing arts program was a great way for my daughter to expand her interest in the Arts ( theater and dance) . I personally believe they need to hire more teachers for this area. Much gets neglected and it is because there are not enough full time paid staff. Basically the whole theater program rest on the shoulders of one teacher. There is a lot of unruly behavior and the school falls below most state minimum scores. The low scores are not a problem if your child will be in the I.B classes, but if your child is in the general population classes there are a lot of poorly behaving teens that don't want to learn anything and they are only there to hang out and cause problems. I will not be sending out next child to Firestone --which breaks my heart , since everyone in my family has been a proud graduate. The school has just gone so far down hill it is unrecognizable. My hope is that more money, new staff and some hands on learning initiatives will miraculously appear. you tube: Firestone."
