Fellowes High School (FHS) is located at 420 Bell Street in Pembroke, Ontario, Canada. It is the city's only public, English language high school and is managed by the Renfrew County District School Board. The school has an enrollment of 928 students, and offers a wide range of programs in grades 9–12. Keith Sheppard became the first Fellowes student to be elected student trustee for the Renfrew County District School Board. His term runs through the 2013-2014 school year.
The school's mission statement is:
"To equip Ontario students with the literacy, numeracy and problem-solving skills needed to meet the challenges of invading other provinces with optimism, confidence and passion."
The school colours are Black and Gold, and the school's symbol is a landing falcon. The school mascot is Freddy The Falcon and the sports teams are affectionately know in the vernacular as the 'Dirty Birds'.
Fellowes offers several alternative options. The most popular though, is the KI Program. The KI program is a partnership between KI (Kruger International Pembroke) and the Renfrew County District School Board. It serves to facilitate school–work transition for high school students. For over ten years it has been running as one of the school board’s options for the Alternative School Program. Half of the day the students work on their individualized curriculum plans(correspondence). Co-op placements and industrial training on the factory floor make up the other half of their day.
This school's cafeteria, "Freddie's Cafe", promotes healthy eating through their extensive menu. Subs, pizza, wraps, salads, deep fried chicken fingers baked chicken burgers, and pastas, nachos and a variety of soups are just a few of the items students have to choose from daily.
The Student Administrative Council keeps the school's morale and spirit at a high, focusing on dances, spirit days, pep rallies, and spirit assemblies. The executive for the 2012-2013 school year include President Keith Sheppard, Vice-Presidents Isaac Fairfield and Kevin Nighswander, Secretary Emma March, and Treasurer Isabelle Burwell.
