School Notes

  • Florence High School (est. 2003) is the main public high school in the city of Florence, Alabama and in the Florence City School System. Florence High School is the result of the merge between the two parent high schools (Coffee HS and Henry A. Bradshaw HS) that were previously open in Florence. The new school was given the falcon as its mascot and school colors of royal blue and silver. This merger also led to the creation of the Florence Freshman Center, which houses the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. The 10th, 11th, and 12th grades attend the high school.
