I currently attend Fort Myers High school and i'm in the IB course at that school. I've only been there less then a month, but I can tell that this really is the best school in the state of Florida. They may have alot of new teachers, but with new teachers comes more challenges. And being in the ib program I know what it's like to be challenged every day. I give this school the highest ranking, becase it really is a great school. They have very high expectations, but nothing that's going to kill us. And dicipline is very good.
My daughter has graduated from , and my son is a senior, both in the IB program. The program is outstanding and balanced, and not only for the gifted. Extracurricular opportunities are varied, the athletic program is widely supported throughout the community and teams are regularly in post-season playoffs. Student population is a wonderful mix of cultures. Most importantly, graduates from FMHS are very well prepared for their college studies, both in time management and in course load(not only my daughter's experience, but that of many of her friends, and classmates). This is easily the best public high school in the extended area. The 2 private high schools are excellent, but lack the advantage of cultural diversity.
I feel that this school provided a wonderful and educational enviroment for my son. I now have my daughter in the IB program at fmhs and know that she will also get an A+ education.
Whether your child is in the IB or regular program this school has exceptional teachers, the desire to excel, strict discipline, and a student body and peer pressure that is there to succeed and mannered. Strong dress code enforced. For the 2003-2004 year I have a 10 & 12 grader in the IB program. Highly Rated and in my research probably the best in South Florida.
