Curriculum at FSHA

Students are taught critical-thinking skills that apply just as easily to a catapult experiment on the field as to an analysis of The Catcher in the Rye. The latest in technology enables an interactive experience in mathematics classrooms in addition to team projects in religion courses.
With a truly international student body, FSHA provides a global awareness to its graduates and prepares them thoroughly for their journey into higher education. Dedicated instructors teach in a seven-period rotating block format with 80-minute classes, allowing students to not only complete graduation requirements, but also to sample a wide variety of electives across many disciplines.
