Feilding High School's logo was gifted by Sir Peter Buck (Te Rangihiroa) in 1922. It also features on the crest of Manawatu District Council. 
In 2000 the school had its name changed from Feilding Agricultural High School (FAHS) to FAHS Feilding High School.
There was much discussion regarding this change. The main argument was that the word Agricultural is translated (or interpreted) as peasant in some Asian languages. This meant that the school was regarded less highly in these areas and would mean that less (income-bearing) foreign students would attend the school. Many people wanted to keep the name as it reflected on the history of the school, and emphasised the strong horticulture and agriculture departments within the school.
