I have a sophmore at this school and I've been impressed with the teachers and staff. She is making good grades, enjoys (most) of her classes and teachers, is active in sports and band. Love the band program!! The overall community is wonderful

This school is good overall. It provides a safe and secure environment that almost feels sheltered at times. As a parent, I was never concerned about my daughter being safe at school or at any nightly activities which is very important and not the case at many other schools. The school provides many social and athletic options for the kids to have a well rounded high school experience. However, I feel like they should step it up academically. My daughter is smart, but she made great grades without a lot of effort. They often watch movies instead of read books and did no term papers. The school prides itself on how many students go on to college, however I think the more interesting stat is how many finish. Even my daughter who is now a freshman in college says she does not feel prepared to write the papers in the different styles and content asked of her. They offer many different AP classes, however how many students actually pass the AP tests to get the college credits. My daughter didn't and very few of her friends did either. The school really does have a lot to offer overall, but could improve on academics.

I am a parent of two former students and a former employee. I agree that this is a decent school for education, but the principal is overdue for retirement. She runs that place like she is the dictator. There is no longer a Homecoming dance because some kids acted up at a former dance (10 years ago)! For years the junior class has worked hard to raise Prom funds to go somewhere nice off island, like downtown Jax. She said "No!" Her reasoning? Because not every student can afford transportation. If they can buy the tickets at $60 a piece and the $200 outfits, I think they could get to Jacksonville. And Jacksonville is the exact location of the high school graduation where all graduating seniors and their families are expected to bring themselves. Perhaps I am being over critical, but I am exasperated with her meaningless and out of touch rules. The sad thing is that my youngest will attend FBHS next year and I wish there could be changes made at the top prior to her arrival so that she could enjoy a great high school experience. She will get the education she needs to move on to college but what will her memories consist of? Prom at the Rec Center?? Come on, RETIRE!!!

FBHS is in desperate need of a new principal--she has been there forever and seems to care more about discipline and drama than curriculum and learning. There are also many other administrators and teachers there who do not care about the students. While there are some good teachers, many of them are lazy, rude to the kids and spend more time on their computers/phones during class instead of teaching and interacting with the kids. If you don't love kids, do NOT teach. Seems simple enough. Imagine what our schools would be like if every teacher and principal truly cared and loved the students. This school is in need of a major overhaul.
