Your System. Our Community. One Florence.

  • The 2021-2022 school year was another step out of the shadows of COVID and into a new year.  We celebrated our first Early College graduates, stuffed a bus, and served our community. What remained constant was our spirit to serve.

    As we reflect on the 2021-2022 school year, you will see administrators, faculties, and staff empowering students to explore their futures, create a solid foundation for academic excellence, win state and national awards by being innovators, and a school board that led us and continues to lead us in an unprecedented time of change. 

    In May 2022, we beamed with Falcon Pride as we had 10 graduates walk across the stage as graduates of both Northwest Shoals Community College and Florence High School. This was the culmination of four years of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. Whether it was stuffing a bus to spread holiday cheer or offering vaccines through a partnership with North Alabama Medical Center, the Florence Community, pulled together to serve the students of this historic school system. As you explore the following pages, take time to reflect and celebrate the school year that was 2021-2022. 

    Florence City Schools; we are your school system. Florence is our community. We are one Florence. 

    Have a great year. Go Falcons!
