Most of my greatest life experiences were at Fernandina Beach High School, FBHS. My school is filled with amazing facility and staff, students, and events. I developed strong relationships along the way as well. FBHS is where I met my best friend. FBHS is where I discovered my absolute love for math. Yes, I know, loving math? Weird! This school is where I poured my blood, sweat, and tears into our competitive cheerleading team. We are blue and gold. We are safe. We are accepting. We are Fernandina Beach High School. Go Pirates!

My experience at Fernandina Beach High School was short, but it was worth while. I enjoyed every single teacher that I came upon and they support and help you with everything you do. The guidance counselors are always open to discuss your future plans and are there the whole step of the way. The support that comes from the school is impeccable and I wouldn't trade it for the world. If there is one thing I would change, even though all schools struggle with this, is the support behind female sports. The focus is always on the male sports and I would like the same type of energy and focus for the female sports.
My overall experience with Fernandina Beach High School was very good and memorable. I challenged myself with rigorous AP classes, got involved in many clubs, and played on two varsity sports teams all four years of high school.
The teachers I had were mainly all very good and prepared me very well for the upcoming years of college. My two favorite classes have been Psychology and Biology sparking my interest in the brain and leading to possibly major in Neuroscience.
I have made incredible relationships with the students and faculty here at Fernandina. The only thing I would change is that for one I wish it was a much bigger school and two that it was an inside school. Instead we have all outside buildings with only a single hallway.
Overall I had an amazing experience at Fernandina Beach High and am so grateful.
