First coast is a very cultured school. Everyone gets along great and their is so many different races, religions, sexuality’s, and life styles I think it’s amazing! Our school this year just turned to a B school and I’m so proud of it. We have many clubs and programs starting with bible club and physics club and even a LGBTQ club. If you want a different perspective on the world and people come here!

I love First Coast High School with a passion! Great People, wonderful staff. People really look out for others there, You always feel safe, when you know they have your back. One thing i wish they could change is the food choices. I honestly get tired of eating Pizza and Chicken tenders everyday. But that's besides the point, It's overall a good school.
First Coast High School is not as bad as many people make it out to be. You could think of First Coast High School as the bunch, and the one or two students as the the bad apples. The bad apples always ruin the bunch. I feel that if the school was a little harsher on students we wouldn’t have the those few making the whole school look bad. One good thing I can say is that teachers are really involved and care about the students well being. Our principal is a very motivational person who does his best to help get his students to graduation ready level.
