Welcome to FHC

Dr. Suzanne Leake - Principal

As we gear up for the start of the 2023-24 school year, I am thrilled to welcome our dedicated students, passionate educators, and supportive families to what promises to be an incredible journey of learning, growth, and collaboration!

Each new school year brings with it a sense of anticipation and excitement, and this year is no exception. Our school has always stood as a beacon of knowledge, innovation, and community, and I am confident that this upcoming year will continue to be the same.
