Flagler Schools serves over 13,000 students across ten schools. With over 2,000 employees, the school district is the county's largest employer and plays a significant role in the community. Flagler Schools is a model for other districts in the state and has been recognized for its technology-infused learning spaces and innovative programs for students.
Our Mission is to ensure educational success through high expectations and innovative thinking in a safe learning environment to empower students to reach their full potential as responsible, ethical, and productive citizens in a diverse and changing world.
In 2021, Flagler Schools adopted a three-year Strategic Plan that established goals in alignment with our mission. Six areas were identified as being paramount in moving Flagler Schools forward while continuing to provide a high-quality education to the families of Flagler County: Academics, Student Supports, Social-Emotional Well-Being, Talent, Operational Efficiency, and Communication.
Our students have the opportunity to take Dual Enrollment courses with partner colleges and universities.
Career and Technical Education programs are available to all students at our middle and high schools. These programs prepare our youth for life after graduation, whether it's continuing their education through college, university or trade school, or entering the workforce with the tools they need to succeed.
District and school accreditation is a certification by an external authority that the minimum standards of quality are being met as required by the Florida Department of Education. Accreditation means that our schools meet leadership capacity, learning capacity, and resource capacity performance standards.
Flagler Schools is accredited through Cognia (formerly AdvancED). Their Accreditation Engagement Review Reports are produced after visiting our schools, examining district documents, and interviewing stakeholders.
