A Message from the Florence High School Principal

Greetings FHS Shareholders,

It is with great honor and enthusiasm that I humbly submit this letter as the Principal of Florence High School. Please accept this note as an official welcome back to Florence High School and our webpage. Our commitment at Florence High School is to provide our students a safe environment that enables them to live out our system’s mission. That mission is to empower our students to explore, create, challenge, innovate and lead, by giving them tomorrow…today.

The program at Florence High School is both extensive and well-rounded. We boast 20 AP Courses, 4 Foreign Languages, 13 Competitive Sports, and an abundance of Career Technical Education Courses. We are also proud of our Fine Arts Academy as well as the courses that we provide through our virtual school options. In addition, we are affiliated with almost every student organization that a high school can house. From Radio, Film and Television, to Recording Arts, our curriculum envelopes the desires and needs of all students.

As we enter this school year, I want you to know that your administrators, your faculty and the FHS support team will work hard make Florence High School the best it can be. The city of Florence only has one high school that bears its name, and that is Florence High School. The programs that we offer are second to one.

In closing, I want to thank each of you who entrust the education of your child to Florence High School. If I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at rsheppard@florencek12.org. I am both honored and privilege to get to serve the city of Florence as the Principal of Florence High School.

Let’s have a great year and GO Falcons!!!!


Roderick D. Sheppard, Ed.D.
