    "I have had students at Foster since 2009 and I absolutely love it. They hold the children to a high standard, yes their dress code is strict and adhered to, however well needed to ensure good order and discipline are followed. I love it and am very pleased with my children being at Foster."

    "Foster high school is the worst place you could send your kids to if you want them to succeed. Teachers care more about dress code violations and what's going on in their own lives than teaching students. There are some teachers who rock, but they put so much emphasis on grading hard and making sure every student is perfect that passing some classes are nearly impossible. As a student, I don't feel safe from bullying, discrimination, and, more importantly, drug use in this school considering I've had to walk behind a student smoking in the hallways. I'm a junior and I definitely can't wait to graduate and never see most of the student and faculty's faces ever again."

    "I am a student at the school and I like it, but it frustrates me. First off all there are a lot of cliques there and the students are not all like and welcoming. Most of the friends I have here came from a different district like me and didn't know anybody. Some of the teachers have multiple jobs, like also being a coach and they're not very helpful if you're having trouble."

    "I am currently a Jr. at Foster, and enjoy most every day there! The Principle is a great man, who takes time to make sure the students who deserve credit get the credit that's due. In my three year's at Foster High, Mr. Tomas has been to every single Theatre UIL event, be it was 30 minuets from Foster or 3 1/2 hours away to show his support! Another person I would mention to give recognition to, is a VP named Mr. Spades, not only is he extremely approachable, but he goes out of his way to talk and to keep updated in the students lives. With the wide ranges of classes from Medical MicroBiology to ROTC (and the many class levels of of Academic/PAP/AP and Dual), the teachers open their arms and their hearts to us students and make me very happy and proud to be call a Foster Falcon! :)"

    "I LOVE this school! The teachers are very approachable and responsive and many have or are working on their Masters. The graduating class this year alone has achieved so much with one student receiving an internship with the Surgeon General, another winning one of 26 nationwide TI National Merit scholarships, acceptance into UT Business program, Rice, Princeton, Duke and other Ivy League schools. The theater students were nominated for 9 Tommy Tune awards, football player awarded Rudy award, many sports program players on the national recruiting lists. The list goes on and on and we have found that there is a place for each of our children at this campus."
