This school will sufficiently prepare you for college. The classes range from easy to competitive, and most teachers care about the students. There are many Dual Enrollment and AP class options, however the workload can be stressful at times.
The administration isn't the best, as they're more focused on enforcing the rules than focusing on the students' basic needs. For example, many students are simply chastised when they miss multiple days of school due to sickness or mental health issues instead of pointed towards valuable resources to help their condition. I would strongly advise any student who has a disability, mental health issues, or chronic illnesses not to attend this school, as there are not many resources and it is hard for students to catch up on work.
Due to the area it is in, the student body is made up of predominately Caucasian, cisgendered heterosexuals. Discrimination has happened, but it is rare and not prevalent.

My experience at Fontainebleau High School wasn’t all that special, it was mainly working toward getting through it and graduating. The main thing I did at the school was be apart of the band, which is pretty good. Some good things about the school are the safety procedures put in place to keep the students, attending the school, safe. I also think the school has good administration that cracks down on discipline when it comes to bullying, fighting, etc. I believe the school could get better teachers that can teach the students correctly and know how to change their teaching styles to accommodate for the students needs. I also think the school could teach the students tips and tricks that will be more useful to them when they get out in the real world as well as prepare them more for if the student decides to attend college.
Fontainebleau is an average school. The student involvement is nice. It's a generally safe school except for the occasional hallway fights. The teachers and administration are generally cool. I've had bad experiences with few of them though. Fontainebleau focuses mostly on discipline which I think is their downfall. If they were to focus more on education and how to improve their students grades, they would greatly improve their test scores. Athletics are okay, they might focus on their not so good football team more than anything else.
