Fort Lauderdale High School was founded in 1914 as Broward County’s first high school. It has since grown to be one of the most storied and prestigious public high schools in the state of Florida, and its famous alumni include novelist Rita Mae Brown, WWII hero Lt. Alexander R. Nininger, and director Bob Clark.

The school houses 2,300 students on a 25-acre campus on the corner of Flying L Drive (Northeast 4th Ave/State Road 811) and Northeast 16th Street, nestled between Wilton Manors and the Fort Lauderdale neighborhood of Middle River Terrace. It has been at this location ever since the school was moved in 1962 from its previous location at Southeast 3rd Ave and Broward Boulevard.
