I attended this school, and have been involved in its activities and with its students, teachers, coaches, and staff recently. I have found that the school offers a strong education. The teachers that they have on staff now and when I went to school there are intelligent, dedicated, hard-working, and committed to the students' education. There are more sports programs now than when I went there and the teams have made successful showings at tournaments in recent years. Numerous students get athletic scholarships as well, so they are being seen by necessary people. There are also more AP classes offered than before and I believe all or most of the students pass the AP tests and are able to take those credits on to college. Students also recieve many academic scholarships, awards, and other recognition (newspaper articles, publication, etc.) I think the school does great based on what it has to work with. It is a small town with only some people being supportive of its students, teachers, administration, programs, etc. Parents should be more involved, but that is an individual choice that this review and anyone reading it has absolutely no control over (unless a parent of a Florence student is reading). When I went on to college from this high school I was very successful and I believe I owe it largely to my Florence education.

I, regretfully, attended this inadequate establishment. The incompetent teachers lack both the capability and credibility to efficiently do their job, most of which being jaded/corrupted with little concern for student security and well-being. The educational standards are lacking and there are few/no AP or college prep. classes to speak of. All extracurricular activities are on a budget and most currently being cut for lack thereof. They're maintained at an insufficient level focusing on teacher salary instead of student benefit. Even parental involvement is low, and the few that actually do help out are the only reason this excuse for an educational environment is still running.
