I think FBHS is an amazing high school for learning and gives many a academic possibilities to its students. From the regular courses all the way to the AP and duel enrollment program we have, there are many possibilities to get ahead in high school and college. I’ve had the chance to be a marching falcon the last 3 years I’ve been here and I’ve had so many amazing memories at the games and competitions that we’ve went to. The only thing I think that could possibly be changed is doing more school spirit activities such as pep rallies and such, we didn’t have much of that this year. But other than that I believe FBHS is an amazing choice for a high school!

Being a student at Flowery Branch High School taught me some very important leadership skills that have helped me to achieve things I never thought possible at my age. With leadership being a crucial focus of the school, they offer classes that invigorate outspoken, strident individuals to hone their capability for management and direction to a finely tuned level. Flowery Branch High School has dedicated teachers and administration that seek unconditional well-being for their students, along with students who strove to create a unified, powerful community around them. I have been blessed to be a Flowery Branch Falcon and experience the unrestricted power of each and every member to achieve their full potential.
I am involved in the early college at Jones program, which I have enjoyed. It has helped prepare me for college with college professors and my classmates. It is great to be able to take a real college class around my friends so I didn’t feel uncomfortable in a new area. I am also involved in the band program, which is excellent the environment in the band program is awesome, and very easy to make friends. We challenge ourselves with difficult music that we master in a very timely manner. The academics are wonderful, and every teacher works hard to ensure the success of their students.
