I am so glad my son got to go to this school.The teachers really care and my son loves this school.He has been here for 2yrs now and he has been doing excellent at this school.Compared to the school he use to go too.This school and the teachers are great.Thanks Fletcher for being a awesome school.
Fletcher provides excellent opportunities for students motivated to take advantage of them. Unlike the magnet schools, it has true diversity in its makeup: there are black, white, rich, poor, smart, struggling, straight edge, druggies, etc., etc. If you want your child to learn how to live in a world filled with all kinds of people before they go out into that world alone after high school, then they would be lucky to attend this school. The faculty and administration are caring and supportive, especially if you are a parent willing to help out with the many activities offered for the benefit of the students. Involved parents always seem to get their concerns taken care of. Fletcher is the best school in Duval County for a motivated student to earn both AP and Dual Enrollment credit.
I am thoroughly impressed with the principal as he promotes trust and high achievment. The teachers are very high quality, particularly those teaching advanced placement. The Humanities and Statistics teachers are extraordinary.
This school is only good for one thing: the loss of innocence, I have known too many students that have been lost to a life of decadence. Now for the academics, anyone can pass there it's just that pitiful
We moved from North Carolina this year and my son is a senior at Fletcher. The staff was outstanding in making sure all credits were counted and very friendly. Big move for his senior year and students were very welcoming. Great school!
