Principal's Message

  • Greetings!

    My name is Michael South and I am the Principal of Hibbett Intermediate School (HIS).  I am very excited to work alongside my Assistant Principal Ms. Melanie Harris, our dedicated faculty and staff, our incoming 5th and 6th grade students, and our parents throughout the 2022-2023 school year!  We look forward to seeing you at HIS!  

    The vision of Florence City School is to offer our students learning opportunities that give them “Tomorrow…Today.”  This ensures that all students learn at the highest level they ever have.  This will be the focus and center of all that we do at HIS.  We will strive to provide all students with educational experiences that prepare them for the next level while fostering their knowledge and interests in higher education or career paths. 

    As a parent, former teacher, and longtime principal, I fully understand the high expectations all parents have for their children.  I look forward to working alongside you to help our students excel in all they do!  Let’s plant dreams in their hearts today as they look forward to their futures.

    We are a team that has been assembled for the best interests of all students in our community. If you wish to contact me to discuss your child, please do not hesitate. You can reach me by phone at 256-768-2811 or by email at Please know I have an open door policy.  If I am not available when you call or come by, I will contact you as soon as possible.  

    Thank you and Go Falcons!

    Michael South, Ed.D.
