Academic Excellence Indicator System report.

Academic excellence is paramount at Frenship High School, where more credits are required to graduate than at many area schools, according to school officials. The school is part of the Frenship Independent School District, which is one of seven districts in the state to achieve exemplary status from the Texas Education Agency. Approximately 70 percent of Frenship High School graduates go to colleges, universities or technical schools.

However, it is not all work and no play at the school, which competes in football, baseball, volleyball, cross-country running, softball and golf. The Tigers made it into the state playoffs in football in 2000.

Technology plays a major role in academic life at the school, which has three mobile wireless labs, multiple computer labs and televisions in 75 percent of classrooms. Parents also have access to the school's technology through an interactive website that allows them to check a child's homework, grades, schedule, attendance and discipline. The site also allows parents to send e-mail to teachers.

Constructed in 1981, Frenship High School has undergone major renovation projects as the student population has escalated. Additions were made in 1995 and 1997, when a freshman wing with 84 classroom was added.

South Plains College instructors teach economics, government and tech-preparation classes at the school and a health sciences program provided by the college allows students to receive emergency medical training.

In addition to sports, extracurricular activities include band, choir, theater, debate and participation in the National Honor Society. The choir has performed at Carnegie Hall in New York and will perform in Australia in 2001.

Students learn civic responsibility at Frenship High School. The Student Council sponsors drug-awareness events and provides students with service opportunities through Toys for Tots, Ronald McDonald charities, the South Plains Food Bank and the Lubbock Women's Shelter.
