Florence City Schools Reviews

I moved from California to Florence, AL at an early age. Alabama to me at the time meant racism and lack of importance toward education because of stereotypes told to me by my friends. Fortunately, Florence city schools extinguished my original thoughts about Alabama and proved my friends wrong. I have seen kids of all races create unity in sports and kids asking their Spanish speaking peers to help them with their project for Spanish club. Administrators always stopped bullying and made sure that doors were locked, with the help of 1-2 police offers, so I rarely felt unsafe. The facilities always looked excellent and were a experience to learn in them. From a wise 4th grade teacher, to a Einstein like AP economics teacher, all of my teachers were unique and always made sure I left the classroom with knowledge and a smile. Starting as young as 10th grade, the district informed me about how important college really is. The district can guide anyone through the journey of learning.
Review Florence City Schools
Florence High School is a great school for students to attend. Most of the teachers care if students succeed or not. Their cafeteria food is awful. That is probably the area where they need to improve the most. Florence High School has a great extra curricular activity variety. They also have opportunities for kids that need jobs while going to high school. They have the choice to work in the morning and go to school at night. The high school gives every student the opportunity to be successful. No matter how long it takes they are willing to work hard with students ti make sure they succeed.
I transferred to Florence City Schools entering my sophomore year, and I am so glad I did. Before, I was at a private school where I did not have many opportunities. At Florence, I had ample opportunities. From the wonderful Fine Arts Program to the Career Tech, I enjoyed all three years of my Florence High School career.
