After graduating in 2013, I was not prepared for the rigorous pace at UT Austin and had a really tough time acclimating. In the first year, I was having to teach myself things I should've learned in high school while also learning new stuff in lectures. Even though I wasn't prepared academically, I was able to work hard and earn an engineering degree. I think Florence might've helped prepare me to work towards my goal, but that's it.

This year, Florence High School received a new counselor and principal. Although we had our doubts about the new administration, the students, parents, and staff of Florence High School have really come to love our new administration. The principal is very involved in cheering on the students academically and in extra-curricular activities by cheering them on, singing at pep rallies, and pumping the athletes up with inspiring speeches. The principal of Florence High School is also very strict on not tolerating bullying, inappropriate dress code violations, and failure to attend school regularly. The counselor is also very active in providing the students the correct information when they need it such as scholarships and information about the future. Our administration is on top of their game this year and I could not ask for better staff members to ensure my child is getting the proper academic care!
There are a handful of outstanding and incredible teachers, ones that teach for the pure joy of teaching and bettering students. However, some teachers lack enthusiasm and drive. Some of them are young and are just working at Florence to get experience and move on to a better paying school district. Because of the inadequate funding due to the poor community, the technology is lacking and supplies are limited. I have had many teachers who just throw worksheets in front of us because they have so many classes on which they have to focus because of the shortage of staff. Nevertheless, the community and faculty are quite supportive of the Ag program and a select others, like the softball and football team. Even though Florence had its problems, there was a sense of family that overshadowed the negative aspects.
