Florence High School might not have the most enthusiastic students or staff, but the school is a breeding ground for success when it comes to extra curricular activities. Not only does FHS offer internships at local businesses for students interested in certain fields, FHS offers a mind boggling amount of fine arts courses. At Florence High School any aspiring student with enough willpower and drive has the ability to thrive in both educational environments and professional environments.
The thing I love the most about Florence City Schools is the fact that they give students a tremendous amount of opportunities to get real world experience - and even pay - while in high school. There are not many public high schools who can claim to have a fine arts academy, culinary program, tv production program with a newsroom studio, and many more offerings. The things I would change at Florence are making sure that teachers who may have real life experience in their field are still qualified to teach, and I would also try to push for more success across the board.
