Florence High School Reviews

Although I graduated in 2011, and things very well may have changed for the better since then, I have to say that I had a less-than satisfactory experience attending Florence High School. My biggest complaint would be the lack of discipline/control of students and the teachers/administration that allows that kind of behavior. I would also like to see them improve their curriculum and become a more competitive and desirable school to go to.

When I attended, there were many amazing teachers that really changed the way I viewed my academics. However, when students reported a case of a teacher bullying a fellow student, it was written off as the students “not understanding the situation” and being ignored. It rarely seemed like administration actually cared about the students.
Florence High School give their students many new opportunities to look at. They are are open to any and everyone. The students and teachers believe in accepting everyone for who the are and giving the love and respect they deserve. Florence High has also really lock down on their safety of their students and they have the DIG-IT program. DIG-IT stands for Diversity, Integrity, Grit, Independent, and Tradition.
