Junior year: a phrase that instills fear in the hearts of freshmen and sophomores at FMHS and beyond. Images of the first Dual Enrollment, IB, honors and AP classes keep students up at night. However, many report Junior year as their favorite year of high school.  A sort of epiphany comes when you realize that all of the hard-work and stress you put in gives you an unmatched feeling of productivity. You meet new people and get closer to old ones. You can’t wait for the year to be over until you wake up one day and realize that you have one year of high school left. However, there are some “professional” juniors here to help you out.


To the Class of 2019,

I hope you summer has been going well, but the start of school is approaching and it is time to crack down. Junior year is all about getting involved, achieving good grades, taking your standardized tests, and having fun at the same time. If there is a club or sport you’ve always wanted to try- go for it! Run for a leadership position or experiment with volunteer opportunities! High school is the time to take risks and have fun. Colleges look at your Junior year with heavy consideration, so make sure to take advantage of your time. Take some advanced classes, study, and challenge yourself. Getting involved and maintaining good grades may seem like a big enough chore- but if you keep busy, it won’t seem like you’re bogged down by anything! Get involved, study, don’t get stressed, and most importantly- have fun! Junior year is the best year of high school, so make the most of the time that you have left at Fort Myers.

See you in school! Annie Thorp
