My experience at Florence High School has been an inspiring journey. Through the years, I have been opened up to so many opportunities. Florence is a very large diverse school. It has showed me that everyone can find a place somewhere and the teachers and staff are the most supportive people to have while deciding your path in life. They will do anything to help and I have taken advantage of that. Florence has so many different programs and clubs to involve all students in something. I wouldn't have wanted to spend my years of high school anywhere else.
Florence High School is outstanding in relation to its faculty, administration, and academics. The teachers are wonderful and are always there for you with any questions you have. They make sure that you understand everything they are teaching and that you are on track. Florence offers countless Advanced Placement classes for students to take in order to further their academic career. It also has a program called FAFA, also known as Florence Academy of Fine Arts, where students can take dance, piano, theatre, and many other art classes. Florence altogether is a great school, the only thing that I would like to see a change in is I would love for there to be more diverse clubs that the students can participate in.
