Overall, this school is a really great school. I've had cousins, aunts, uncles, and many friends who graduated from Florence High School. So, it was really nice to be apart from this tradition to Graduate from this high school. When attending to Florence High School I knew I was going to have a great day. The teachers there were always welcoming and knew how to help students. I've made a lot of friends and they will be my life long friends. Even when I was struggling on a subject, a teacher or peer would gladly help me. I really liked when they did that because it made me feel more confident with my tests and finals. Florence High School really helped me grow as a person and I did mature much better when I was there. Florence High School was a great school.

My experience at Florence High School has been amazing but also rememberable. I've been provided the best education and opportunities to have a jumpstart in my adult life. I joined a program called CAVIT which gives students the opportunity to start a career and I choose Medical Assisting. I am grateful for being part of this school and I wouldn't want to go to a different one. Over the years, Florence High School has changed significantly and for the better. The only thing they could approve on is having more elective choices.
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.
