My experience of Florence city schools was both a positive an negative one I took half AP classes and half regular classes. I had some incredible teachers that pushed me to do my best and I knew I could always turn to them, but I also had teachers that were not good teachers and that I was severely disappointed and had a terrible experience with. We were able to use Chromebooks and Ipads but there is surprisingly not enough access to physical books if someone were to need them. The administration is frustrating at times and they are known to go back on their word, for example up until I was a junior there were off periods so many students prepared to take off periods their senior year but then we suddenly didn't have them anymore which disrupted many schedules, including mine. Overall, Your experience at Florence will heavily depend on what classes you take and what teachers you get.
Florence City Schools puts students and community first! Technology integration is second to none. Forest Hills Elementary is a wonderful place to work. We are like family! As a former parent of a FHES student I can say my child received a quality education in a safe, loving environment.
