Welcome to Futurus High School
We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry, and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.
It’s also at home that children learn to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as show utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.
Home is where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how/where to properly dispose of garbage.
Home is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.
Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, math, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education.
We only reinforce the education that children receive at home from their parents.
We are a school of choice that caters to students in grades 11-12+ within the district, as well as its surrounding districts.
The mission is to provide students with options toward graduation and earning their high school diploma.
