Good but it needs to be improved for those who simply don't have the time and are usually working jobs as well and dual enrollment.

FMH is hands down the best High School in the area as far as academics are concerned. Especially for students that are bright and want to get into a good college after high school. If your student enrolls in and successfully finishes the IB program, the sky is the limit. In addition, the school offers tons of AP classes for extra credits. FMH students have a very high acceptance rate at the best public college in the state, University of Florida. My oldest son graduated in 2018 Summa Cum Laude and is now at UF. He was well prepared and it was an easy transition, partly because so many of his class mates from FMH joined him at UF.In addition to great academics, the school also has some of the best athletic teams. The girls basketball program won state 3 years in a row.I still have 2 kids at this school (junior and senior; both in the IB program) and I am confident that they too will end up at a great college thanks to the excellent teaching staff at Fort Myers High.

FMHS is by far the best school in Fort Myers. There is an overwhelming sense of tradition and expectation for excellence. There are so many clubs, sports, and other activities that just about every student can find something outside of school to take part in (and excel), if not, it's a breeze to start your own club (I did). The IB teachers are, for the most part, incredible and don't feel the need to inundate you with useless work. There is a very strong sense of safety and overall calmness, bullying isn't a problem and people in general tend not to get in each other's way. We have a huge success rate with our students being admitted at about any state school (over 90% acceptance rate into UF in a couple of occasions), and our top students get accepted into top schools like MIT, Duke, and GeorgiaTech more frequently than any other school in this county.

It's amazing how little the faculty care about the students there. There is a culture of lying there that starts a the top. An example is how they continue to list themselves as a top 100 school on their webpage when they have not been there for three years.

Heard so many good things so I was shocked when we did not experience them! If your child is in the I.B program or plays sports Ft Myers is a great school otherwise forget it. The school really only cares about those two things,everything (and everyone else)falls to the wayside. The school placed our child in advanceded math classes (Trig & Calculus etc).Our child did extremely well and continued advancing only to be told senior year -Oops! We made a mistake you shouldnt have been in those classes(starting freshman year mind you) because you never took Algebra 2 so until you do you cannot graduate with your class. Our child indeed had to do an extra semester due to the school's mistake & despite getting A's & B's in their most advanced math classes! Our other children will not be attending Ft.Myers when it is time for their high school.
