Welcome to South Florence High School! It is my honor to serve as principal.  SFHS has the distinction of serving as the Fine Arts Magnet High School for Florence One Schools.  Our rich academic and arts programs provide a unique and innovative educational experience for all of our students.  The wide variety of courses offered to our students provides them with opportunities in the arts, academics, and science and technology.  Our course options include STEM classes, fine arts courses, career and technology classes, and a wide selection of Advanced Placement classes.  We are proud to partner with Francis Marion University to offer students opportunities to earn college credit through our thriving dual credit program.  The faculty and staff of South Florence High School are committed to providing our students with the foundation needed to be successful in college and career paths post-graduation. 

In addition to our academic and fine arts offerings, there are multiple opportunities for students to become involved in high school.  Our athletic programs, along with our student club organizations, provide students with the opportunity to become involved and explore individual interests and talents. 

I look forward to partnering with all South Florence students and families as we make the journey to excellence in education.   Please reach out to me if I may be of assistance.  I am proud to be a part of the Bruin Family and I am looking forward to a successful year.
