I personally didn’t know what college was going to be like until this past summer when I took a college dual enrollment class. Fitzgerald high school needs to make it mandatory for students to complete a college-preparedness assessment or have them complete a weekend college preparatory class? Advanced Placement classes are the closest things to a college-preparedness class, but even then it won’t make up for all of the different things you must adjust to during college. Developing skills such as time management are taught firsthand, but these skills will fade if they aren’t reinforced regularly. Money management is another skill that is necessary to live well in this country. And what happens when credit comes into play? If most young adults don’t understand what credit is or how it works, when will they learn? They may end up learning the hard way and starting off with bad credit, and they shouldn’t be taught that way.

My experience at Fitzgerald High School was alright but it definitely could've been better. I've made a lot of good friends at this school and have built some relationships with the majority of my teachers that I have had for a couple of years. A thing that needs to change is the teachers at FHS need to be a little more strict and start doing something about the kids that don't behave well. Another thing about our school that needs to change is that most of our money should go to our actual education and not mostly to football. I wish I could give this school higher but due to all the different aspects of this school I can't and won't.
I went to Fitzgerald High School and it was a pretty good school! Of course every school has its flaws, but everyone who attends LOVES their purple hurricanes! You can most certainly count on your community, school, and peers to be behind you in everything!
