A Message from Florence High School Principal Lynne Hice

Dear Stakeholders,

I am honored and privileged to be part the Florence High School Team. Our team is composed of dedicated individuals committed to providing students with excellent academic and social learning experiences. Florence High School is ranked as one of America’s Best High Schools as reported Niche’s Best High School report for 2016. Florence High School has also been named as a Banner School by the Council of Leaders in Alabama Schools (CLAS) for the second time. This year our 12 for Life Program is being recognized by CLAS for its innovation and service to students. This serves as a testament to the hard-work of our staff, faculty, and most importantly, our students.

FHS is committed to providing students with rigorous and relevant curriculum. We provide the most extensive curriculum of any high school, public or private, in Northwest Alabama with more than 272 course offerings. Students may choose from among 20 Advanced Placement (AP) courses and nine Honors courses in the areas of science, mathematics, English, foreign languages and social studies. Students may also choose from among 65 Career/Technical Education courses in 20 different fields of study. In addition to opportunities to earn college credit by successful completion of AP courses and AP examinations on campus, students may also gain college credit via dual enrollment at the University of North Alabama and Northwest-Shoals Community College, as well as through selected on-line courses.

FHS is committed to providing our students with the latest in technological advances as part of the school’s one-to-one technology initiative and through participation in the Florence Virtual High School. Students use this technology in class and at home to access digital textbooks, correspond with teachers, submit assignment, and to preserve a record of student work in digital portfolios. Learning time is no longer confined to the traditional school day. Students have the opportunity to extend learning 24/7, anyplace, anytime by participating in virtual courses taught by our teachers. These important initiatives allow FHS students to extend the classroom beyond the walls of the school. With the use of technology and participation in virtual classes, our students are engaged in instruction relevant for today’s world.

FHS is also committed to the pursuit of excellence in areas which support students’ personal interests. Whether it is participation in The Florence Academy of Fine Arts, which includes orchestra, show choir, drama, theatre, dance, band, chorus, studio art, creative writing or clubs, community services opportunities, athletics, engaging in leadership or producing Florence Falcon TV; there is an opportunity for our students to connect with their passion and excel.

We invite you to join us on our journey to become #1 in Alabama and among the top in the nation!
