My experience at Firelands was always fantastic! I attended Firelands from first grade to senior year and learned a lot. The teachers are very helpful and the community is awesome. Every teacher was able to provide me with the help I needed. The community at Firelands include students and parents are awesome. They love to help when we they can and pull together for everyone’s benefit. Being at Firelands they you encounter a vast amount of ideas and thoughts from an array of people. In the coming years I would love to see the arts programs grow and for the new school to be built. When I was a student at Firelands I always wished that they offered a musical theatre class but can hope that it is something that will be added soon.

Firelands High School offers many great opportunities for academic success. I attended Firelands High myself and was very happy with the partnership in which they have with Lorain County Community College. This partnership allows students to go beyond just the basic high school requirements and gives them the opportunity to take college level courses while still in high school that will be able to transfer over to most colleges in Ohio!
Most of the teachers there are very helpful and try their best to work with the students. Many of the academics are challenging and provide me with experience. I've made great friends through the music program as well, specifically band. There is a great atmosphere when I'm performing and I feel at ease with my friends. Not that it is necessarily a product of the school but more the area but a lot of the student body is not the most tolerant, especially of LGBTQ+ people. The administration does a little bit to try and promote positivity among the students with clubs and school-wide activities.
