Fort Myers High School was founded in 1911. Our school is rich in tradition and pride.
How do I get into the program?
Whether you are part of the rigorous International Baccalaureate program or mainstream high school, simply select band, color guard or dance on your class choice form.

Do you have auditions?

Dance and Color Guard information meeting April 17 at 6pm in the band room. For new families, please drive around the back of the school and enter through the courtyard. You will see a back "loading dock/stage" area and that is where the back door to the bandroom is located.
