    Would you like to become an FHS student?


    We are a Trauma Informed School (TIS) which is a way of holistically supporting students who have experienced trauma in any form. TIS is an evidence based best practice that focuses on the whole student within the context of their environment. Learning more about what trauma is and what trauma does to the brain will help school, community, and family members make sense of behaviors that may seem hard to understand.


    FHS is a Junior, Senior, and 5th year Senior High School only. 
    All applications will be reviewed to determine eligibility and enrollment.
    We are located at 906 Johnson Road, Centralia, WA (At the intersection of Johnson and Pioneer)

    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.

    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.
