Florence has teachers who care about their students and their success. I enjoy going to school in this environment. School is fun because there are many opportunities to get involved. The schools facilities are not the greatest, but the school does its best to make sure they are ready for students. The school is a good diverse community and it isn't too big or too small. The staff as a whole is very kind, helpful, caring, and good at preparing students.
