I have watched my daughter become a Senior this year and it’s been amazing. FHS is a wonderful school, with fantastic teachers and staff. I have seen problems come up but they are handled in professional ways. I also have a son who is on the football team and they show them exactly what school pride is. I cannot say enough good stuff about FHS. I’m just glad to be an EAGLE and so are my kids!

Great school, everyone is very nice. All of the teachers are always ready to help. The teachers want to form friendships and never make you feel low. There are many activities to involve yourself in with many different things.
I graduated from Florence High School in 2009 and I feel like I was very well prepared for college. Many of the classes I took focused on college prep and prepared me for the real world. The teachers did really work hard and take time with students. I felt very safe and I felt like my education mattered to the teachers and staff at FHS. My only complaint is the lack of recognition to the arts programs. There were many talented students in both band, choir, theatre, and art but it seemed like these programs were not as valued as sports.
