First Flight High School Reviews
I enjoy sports. Our sports program is great. The teachers are average, they prepare us for college and that is it. there are a couple teachers I love. The kids are actually pretty mean, everything revolves around popularity. What can you expect tho, everybody is a beach bum. Most kids get good grades even if they are mean. I love basketball, our varsity boys team is the best team ever! They are about to play the 2nd round of the playoffs! They dominate!
I loved First Flight. I moved to Dare County my sophomore year and although I only spent three years there I had a great experience there. The classroom sizes were much smaller than what I was used to and I enjoyed the opportunity to have that one on one time with the teachers. My teachers were wonderful especially the band director. The band definitely gave me a home. I spent most of my free time in the band room. I participated in many after school activities like the plays and musical productions. There were so many clubs and activities to choose from and get plugged in with. And our soccer team was killer! I was provided with many opportunities to prepare me for college and the future.
First Flight High School is an amazing school with great teachers that truly care about their students' academic success. We have many meaningful and challenging classes that prepare our students for college in the future. Our athletics are amazing and there are also a variety of different clubs/organizations for students to become involved in. Some of the teachers only give busy work, however the outstanding AP teachers make up for that. There also is a lack of diversity, there are too many cliques, and the cafeteria food is not the best.. Although these cons, First Flight has definitely seen improvement over the years and the success we have in academics, sports, and overall involvement makes up for the disadvantages.
