Located in the east Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale High School is part of the Broward County Public School System and serves over 2,900 students.
Daily classes operate on an A/B block schedule. This means that students are enrolled for seven academic classes and one “study hall”. Periods 1-4 meet on A days, while periods 5-8 meet on B days. The days alternate and each period lasts approximately 90 minutes.
The school offers a conventional high school program complete with regular, honors and AP classes. Additionally, it is home to two magnet programs, Cambridge AICE and Pre-law and Public Affairs. Students looking at these programs must apply for acceptance.
