Naming confusion[edit]

In 1935, Friendship High School (Frenship's predecessor) applied with four grade schools to become Friendship Independent School District. The state of Texas responded back that the name Friendship was already in use and automatically assigned the new district Frenship Independent School District.[2]


In January 2007, the Frenship Independent School District and South Plains College jointly created the Frenship Early College High School which is now known as Frenship Collegiate Prep High School. The Frenship Collegiate Prep (FCP) program allows students 60 hours of college credit or an Associates Degree at no cost to the student while earning their high school diploma.[3]


The Frenship Tigers compete in the following sports:

Cross Country, Volleyball, Football, Basketball, Powerlifting, Soccer, Golf, Tennis, Track, Softball & Baseball

State Titles[edit]

  • Boys Cross Country - [4]
    • 2002(4A)
  • Frenship Marching Band, 2011
