I've only been to Fort Myers High School for both my Junior and Senior year, but the memories there are like nothing I've ever had before at other schools I have been to! The Clubs there are always enjoyable and engaging, there are teachers that can really, really help you for both high school and college! The games and events are perfectly planned and turn out fantastic! I'll never forget the 2017-2018 homcoming; one of the best times I've had in school, EVER! Class of 2018 in Fort Myers High School has been like nothing else and I'll cherish every single one of those moments! It just felt safe, fun and memorable to be there!
I've only been here for a while as a freshman but I really am getting a lot of help. The teachers are always there and they actually teach very well. They also have really good food, especially for it being free. It's nice to have a good environment to learn that also has many tools to help with the student's success like chromebooks. The school is excellent at preparing students for their future. Not even a full two months in and I have already been told many beneficial websites to help obtain a scholarship before we start college. The schools lack a little diversity however that is based on the general location rather than the school itself. The school opens its arms to their students and have a great standard for their students to achieve. They expect nothing less than greatness from their students and that makes the students even more motivated to become successful.
