Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Fort Lauderdale High School, FLSH is one of the oldest continuously functioning high schools in Broward County, Florida. The school founded in 1899, it was the only high school in the 68 mile stretch between Miami and West Palm Beach. In 1915 tourist trade increased in Fort Lauderdale, which boosted the population of residents in the county. In a land slide vote, the county decided to construct a new school that was able to accommodate more students. In 1915, Fort Lauderdale High had their first graduating class of five boys. In 1963, Fort Lauderdale High moved from its original downtown location to its present location on Northeast Fourth Avenue.
The school is home to numerous magnet programs, including one of the states most prominent pre-law programs and the Advanced Studies Institute, a program which allows students to follow an Advanced Program, AP and Honors level-track which places them in sophomore standing their first year of university. Recently, a third magnet was added the Cambridge Program, sponsored by Cambridge University.
The Athletic Program began in 1915 with only two male sports, Fort Lauderdale High now provides the students with eleven varsity sports for males and ten varsity sports for females. The school also offers four junior varsity sports for males and five junior varsity sports for females to participate in. In 1917, FLHS won their first state championship in Track, which is where the unique mascot was derived. Over the years the athletic program has accumulated fifty-nine state championships, which puts Fort Lauderdale High in the lead over all other Broward County schools.

The mission of Fort Lauderdale School is to provide an environment in which all students will acquire the necessary skills to become responsible thinkers who appreciate diversity and are productive citizens in their community.
