Spanish River helped prepare me for college while allowing me to enjoy my time while there. The various academies were all outstanding and the teachers in them and in general are caring and passionate to help students succeed. I'm thankful that I was able to go to this school, and as long as you find the right people/group/club/interest, this school can really help you thrive :) Key tip: take AP bio!! You will not regret the teachers nor the possible college credit. Bio in college is not as fun or as easy as in high school, so take the opportunity to take it, even if you think you don't need it! The AP teachers are some of the best, so take advantage of their knowledge while you can.
