Four FHS seniors have qualified to be 2015 Presidential Scholar candidates. The seniors are Peter Gea, Matt Parisi, Michelle Peng, and Michelle Qui. 

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. Each year, up to 141 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.
