Naming confusion[edit]

When Wolfforth School District was unified with three other rural districts (Carlisle, Hurlwood and Foster) in 1935, they applied for the name "Friendship Independent School District". The application was rejected as the name was already taken by a Houston-area school district; thus, officials opted for the name Frenship.[2]

Curriculum[edit]

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 to earn 60 hours of college credit or an associate degree while earning their high school diploma. In 2015, FISD created a new partnership with Angelo State University, enabling students to also earn college credit from there.[3]

Frenship Tiger Band[edit]

The Frenship High School Marching Band program is the second biggest and one of the most known in the entire South Plains, winning a multitude of awards at UIL contests and many other local competitions.

  • 2003
  • 2005
