First State School Reviews

First state school is nothing short of amazing. I came to FSS when I was In fourth grade and I am a senior in highs school now so I have been a student here for nine years. First state school is accommodating, supportive, and always goes above and beyond for all their students. They are truly like a family. With their support I have kept up with school and have been able to attend school where as I would be home bound If I did not have FSS.
