Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face…we must do that which we think we cannot".
Coming with the background of a mild, under confident child, I was not sure if I would fit into a new environment with the likes of other teenagers I found superior to me, only to later be proven wrong and realise that it would be the best 3 years of my high school.
Florence Public School, provided me with the strong academic knowledge, learning to face a crowd, making myself presentable and approachable, learning to communicate, the extra-curricular activities as well all the laughter, fun, friendship and bonds that are going to last a lifetime. This school or rather my second home has given me the perfect upbringing that a teenager needs as he/she grows up and helping me find my way through the 3 years of high school which I was skeptical about initially. It has nurtured the teenager and turned me into a responsible youth with a promising potential and all this was solely possible because of the trust and faith instilled in me by my super awesome Principal, the amazing faculty and our beloved Chairman.
Education helps you learn more, but Florence helps you to learn, love and live your life by bringing out the BEST in YOU!

Florence public school played a key role in shaping my personality. At a time when people around me said that I had to choose between sports and academics, it taught me how to balance both. School gave me the confidence to stand up for myself and be counted.
At Florence Public School I had the opportunity to learn and participate in several literary, cultural and sporting events and was also encouraged to be dynamic in thought. I was constantly pushed and encouraged to be the best I could be. The competition in school in both sports and academics pushed every student to perform to the best of their abilities. There is also a deep emotional connect with the school which brings me back to visit ever so often
I joined Florence in 1991, and was there right until 2004 when I finished my 10th Standard. Thus, the school clearly played a major role in shaping who I am today. Its importance to my life can be gauged from the fact that I am still in touch with the school and the teachers there, and that most of my friends (and even my work colleagues!) are from Florence. I do retain several fond memories of my experiences there and am extremely grateful to the teachers who played an indispensable role, teaching me both technical details of subjects and also life-skills.
