What We Fund

The FUHS Foundation provides funding across the district to ensure that all our students are offered a full range of opportunities.

While government funding covers the basics, donations from parents and community enable supplemental programs that enhance our students’ educational experience — from STEM to applied arts and performing arts, to athletics and Robotics, plus college readiness programs.

The Foundation proudly presented the District with our largest gift to date – $365,000 !

Resume Workshop – Sponsored by the FUHS Foundation

Robotics has been a huge part of my high school experience. I’ve learned a lot of technical skills, as well as how to work in a team and communicate well with others.
