Fishers High School

Fishers High School (FHS) is the second high school in Hamilton Southeastern Schools in Fishers, Indiana. The student count for the 2011-2012 year is 2,206[3]. Fishers High School has been approved by the International Baccalaureate Organization as an IB World School, and began offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in the fall of 2007. The Fishers High School mascot is a tiger. The Tigers' athletic teams participate in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference.

Fishers High School runs on a traditional schedule with seven classes per day beginning at 7:40 am and ending at 2:55 pm. There are 7-minute passing periods between classes, and three 30-minute lunch periods during 4th period. In addition, there is a Student Mentor and Resource Time (SMaRT) period every other Tuesday after third period, which serves as a special information period for freshmen and a study hall for upperclassmen.



The original Fishers High School was located at Lantern Road and 116th Street where the current Fishers Elementary School stands, but the school was demolished in 1969 after the opening of Hamilton Southeastern High School. In 2003, the current school opened as a freshman campus but, in 2007, the school opened a second wing which allowed for grades 9-12 to occupy the building. For the 2010-2011 school year, a 500 student expansion was constructed, connecting the A, B, and D hallways[4]. Despite this expansion, there continues to be inadequate room for all of the coming year's freshmen classes, resulting in the use of portable classrooms.
