    We have the greatest faculty staff and administration in the area. We are likely to have enough points to have an "A" this school year. That distinction comes from all the hard work of our people and especially our students. TIWAHE!

    Overall I think Ft. White is a great school and what its lacking it will take time to build. Some of the teaching staff have alittle to learn about life in general when it comes to what the childs life is like outside the school walls. Its not always a perfect world for them. For people who live in a dream world and think automatically that everthing is the child fault they are wrong. Overall though I would give this school a C+

    I love this school. My three children have attended FWHS and they loved it also! The administration is the best in the county. I certainly wouldn't choose any other school in the county for them to attend when I know that this school is tops!

    My children have excelled at FWHS and it is due to superb teachers and administration.

    Fort White is a very good school. Yes Fort White has problems but its the kids that start everything. The kids are the ones that make the bathrooms dirty and they are the ones that dont follow the dress code.I am senior at Fort White High and this school has helped me and they still are. NO i am not one of the teachers kids .I am a student that cares about his life. This school does need help but the kid are the one that can change everything.

    This school is horrible! As soon as a student has a problem they want to send them to alternative school. Yes we transferred from somewhere else... The dress code --- let's teach our children favoritism -- just go sit at the school and see how many children are dressed right and have their shirts tucked in. Plain and simple -- girls don't have to. Let's have no sugar in the cafeteria with high priced lunches and candy bars for sale everywhere. I have 5 children so I do have experience with schools and this one is the worst I have seen. I am now faced with trying to home school a child with a learning disability. Someone should look into everything there -- right down to the dirty nasty bathrooms that my children are afraid to even use. Way too much favoritism and if aren't from here you can forget it!

    FWHS is a fabuluos high school. The leadership is the best it has ever been!

    Both of my children have gone to FWHS; this is my daughter's 1st year and my son is now a Senior. He has attended this school since the 1st year it opened. Any time that I've had a problem which has only been twice the whole time he's been attending the problem was taken care of the same day. If you're a parent that cares about your child and is persistant if there's a problem be it social or educational the problem will be handled. NO school is perfect just as NOTHING and NO ONE is but we've been VERY pleased w/this school. And no we're not employed by them. The school does need to have more parents involved.

    A concerned parent for Grades 6-8 and 9-12. There are some children 12-14 that do not need to be exposed to what 17 and 18 year old teenagers are doing well enough said. They need to seperate this most immediately. Dress code is a problem and it's the parents. If you are a parent of a girl protect her cover her up make sure she comes home looking the same as you sent her. She is a vital part in your family. The disipline in the school should be reconsidered. Because Fort White is such a small town the adults that run the school are the parents of the children in the school. There is a lot of favortism. Protect our children love our children. Seperate them. Let them learn at their own age levels. Quickly some one can do something. And parents look out because we need a PTSA.

    This is not a very good school. There are alot of drug problems and teen pregnancies. There are also a lot of race issues. The teachers are not very helpful at all if your child is having a problem in a subject.

    Ft. White has been a wonderful learning opportunity for my child. His grades have improved and the teachers and principal have a geniune care & concern for the students. Mr. Hatcher is a wonderful principal. They also have a great sports program at Ft. White as well as other great activities for your child. I highly recommend Ft. White above all other middle schools or high schools.
