Open Quote I am currently a junior at FLHS and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else. The principal is an absolute sweetheart and the teachers are absolutely amazing. Their ROTC program is my favorite but they have so many clubs and extracurricular activities its mind blowing. Definitely a great school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
