    "The things that I like about Furr High School are that you have the freedom to be a part of any clubs that interest you and you can fit into any place and be comfortable. I also like that you are able to manage yourself as your own person and there you are able to build healthy relationships with teachers who really help you so want to succeed."

    "I have really enjoyed my studies at Furr high school. Both of my parents along with all of their siblings graduated from this school. I am pleased with the teachers who have taught me everything I know, I am grateful for the Futures Program that has helped me in so many ways. My only complaint at this school is the lunches are not so great at times. Other than that I think it's a pretty awesome school where the principal and teachers really care about the students."

    "My school experience was really great with all the actives I've done. One thing I like about Furr High School is the different dual credits that we have that works with Houston Community College. The changes I would like to see is the new remodel of the school that is in the making."

    "Furr high school is a great school. We have some good teachers and my principal dr.simmons is like family. Sometimes the ap's can be pushy but they're doing it to help you out . The best thing about my school is the classes and genius hour it's amazing because we get to pick what classes we want to take. The worst thing would well I can't think of anything that I really just don't like."
