Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Fernandina Beach High School, an exceptional learning environment that is dedicated to providing the best educational opportunities for all students, while achieving academic excellence, which is the Pirate Advantage.  FBHS is a close-knit education community that promotes the academic and social development of all students in a safe environment conducive to learning.

As the proud principal of Fernandina Beach High School, I have the distinct pleasure of working with a devoted faculty and staff that cares deeply for all students and is passionate about teaching and learning.  In each department, teachers deliver a challenging and rigorous standards-based curriculum that promotes opportunities for continued growth and exploration for all students.  Our teachers utilize best practices to meet the educational demands of our student body.

Fernandina Beach High School is a school where you will experience a diverse learning community; where students develop a positive sense of self; strive to achieve their fullest potential and become responsibile individuals through a variety of opportunities in a safe, supportive, collaborative culture.  Our students attend a school that expects and believes that they will achieve at very high levels.  Above all, Fernandina Beach High School wants our students to challenge themselves in every endeavor, both inside and outside of the classroom.  We believe our programs give our students that opportunity.

We truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience.  Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the students of Fernandina Beach High School.  Education is a partnership betweenthe school, students, parents/guardians, and community.  All students are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals. By working together, we will make this a wonderful successful year for our students.

Go Pirates!
