Principal's Welcome

Dear Florence High School Parents and Students,

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2024 – 2025 school year.  At Florence High School, we strive to prepare students for life after high school.  We provide students with an excellent education including the opportunity to earn 42 hours of dual credit, take Advanced Placement classes and take classes that prepare them for the real world, like financial math.  Students also have the opportunity to complete 9 different programs of study with industry-based certifications preparing students for the workforce and postsecondary training. 

As a graduate of Florence High School, I am excited to have the opportunity to partner with parents and the community to support and serve the students at FHS.  Together we can help our students be successful!

I invite you to read our weekly campus newsletter, visit our campus, and see all of the great things that are happening at FHS.  I look forward to another great year.  If I can be of any assistance to you, please let me know. 


Dr. Russell Porterfield

Principal, Florence High School
