I used to go to this school last year, most people were welcoming, and are helpful. This school could use alot of improvement! I'd give it a 2.5, I don't see why the teachers encourage the students to better themselves when the kids are just as ghetto as the teachers. As a school there are alot of great teachers, but as far as the students, thats what makes the school, and well look where its at. As long as you go in with a posative mind the school isn't that bad. Good luck to anyone who attends (:

So far I visited the school for the first six weeks and I am very impressed on how my daughter enjoys going to school there. She has come along way I was very impressed on how each teacher enjoys having her in their classroom as a student. Especially her math class, that's something I normally have a problem with trying to retreive the answers. I hope this school encourages my daughter to maintain the A honor roll average that she has.
I attend Florence and I really think it is a good school even though it needs a little repair inside doesn't mean we don't get learning out of it.
My daughter goes to Florence, my son went last year, I was not a happy mother last year but this year I have seen a major change. As far as the school books the parents can check them out till the end of the year. The building doesn't need as much work as the childrens attitudes. We or I personally got fustrated they have been telling these kids to tuck in their shirt since day one. They are still doing the same thing as of today what in the world are these parents teaching these children if they can't even make them respect these teachers so they can do their job not tell them how to dress they cant even teach our children, so we need to teach our children to respect the teachers.
This could be a better school if it get a total makeover inside and out. The school bldg is too old and looks it and not very clean. This really reflects on student moral and attitude. Also there is not enough books for the children. I'm tired of hearing on how my child is failing and not doing homework. I keep hearing that there is not enough books to go around. How is a parent suppose to help their child with homework with only a piece of paper and not a book for guidance? He can't bring his books home in order to help understand the homework sheets. Please help me go understand.
This is a very dead school it has very little to offer. I know it is because it is a low income area. But why should that matter. My daugher wants to be a doctor how will she make when the school offers anything that gets our educated for life after school. What are we going to do? Can anyone here my plea for help out there? Will someone please help our children? This school is in need of more things to offer.
