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 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.
What I enjoyed the most was honestly being in the all the bands all four years, if anything could change I would love to see more support for the band programs. Also for all the art programs in general there. The sport teams get more support overall, and it is a struggle for the art programs to find funding sometimes. For example, the band could benefit from having some new instruments for each section, but because how expensive they are, and little support they are not able to get new, or at least well-working instruments for the students. Unlike the football team, and cheerleaders who get new uniforms almost every other year and get support from the community. The band was using uniforms that the current band director wore when he was in high school.
