    As a Destin resident, I'm glad we made the decision for our 2 children to attend FWBHS. Great school, administration, teachers, counselors and extracurriculars.

    My son has been on a waiver throughout high school to participate in the FWBHS drama department. It is truly an amazing experience for students who want to pursue something other than sports. He is a better person because of this program. It is the best drama program in this part of Florida!

    Would have been 5 stars but the guidance counselors have too many student to keep track of and my child will not be able to graduate with honors even with a 4.2 grade point because the correct classes were not recommended (that is what a guidance counselor is for) BIG dissappointment.

    Great School!! Excellent Staff!! After moving to destin we were concerned about the high school because our child is Autistic. I was so amazed at how involved the staff were compared to our previous high school. My child has the best classes to fit her needs.

    FWBHS is an excellent school with amazing teachers and administrators that truly care about the students and their families. The academics are challenging and the students are well-prepared for college upon graduation.

    The school has strong leadership. The school leaders have high expectations of their students and teachers. Administration has a visible presence in the classroom, hallways and school functions. They help create a positive atmosphere at the school.

    There is a sense of trust amongst the students, teachers and staff at the high school. Everyone knows what is expected of each other. The teachers have high expectations of their students and it shows in the students performance

    My son attends this school for three years now. He and I have loved it. The school understands that friends are an important thing to these teenagers and give them many outlets to hang out. The school has many teachers with over 15 years of experience. This is a great school. If you are going to send you child to a high school, make it this one!
