What I like about Fluvanna County High School is that their academic choices are very wide in class choice options. You have a variety of choices to choose from. Saying that, there are also very willing to help you when you need assistance on almost anything. The very best part about the school’s structure is that there’s a huge football field, baseball field, track, softball field, and even a tennis court! I would definitely recommend new parents that are deciding between schools, or just moving into the county, to look into what Fluvanna has and what the child is willing to accomplish!

The clubs here are absolutely terrible. The yoga club is all a bunch of rude, skinny, white girls who make fun of anyone over a size two who dares to join.
The closest thing we have to culture is rednecks who wear hunting gear and dirty boots.
The coaches don't know how to keep their team together. The athletes have no clue what they're doing and lose just about every game. Somehow, they still end up the most funded activity in this school.
The arts classes, especially photography, are super underfunded.
We have zero diversity, food I wouldn't even feed to a pig, and unless you take the AP classes you are not prepared for college.
Last year the school decided that having us all in the cafeteria was a safety violation because if a shooter came in they would have no problem getting us all. This year they have decided that our safety must not mean that much because they are making us all sit in the cafeteria again.

I can appreciate Fluvanna County High School for many reasons --the academics is not one of them. Surrounded by a diverse classroom of peers and a beautifully designed building, the atmosphere is something enjoyable. The difficulty, however, comes when attempting to take classes with any more rigor than the standard honors curriculum. There is an immense shortage of teachers with AP or Dual-Enrollment (DE) credentials, leading to most AP and DE classes being offered online. Students that choose to take these rigorous online classes are situated in a computer lab for most of the day, if not the entire day, the presiding story of the top 10% of the Junior and Senior class. Aside from this, however, the extracurriculars are often well represented, with a Nationally ranked Speech team and a state champion baseball team being just a few of the accomplishments of the school of recent years.
