Looking Back at the History of FLVS

I started working at Florida High School (as FLVS was called in its early days) in January of 2000.

My interview was short and sweet…three questions. After I answered the questions, I was taken to the office of Julie Young, our first leader and online education pioneer, for a few more questions and the job offer.

There were just 10-15 of us in our small Orlando office shared with OCPS at the time, including Julie Young (Principal), Bruce Friend (Assistant Principal), two registrars (myself included), two IT staff members, a school counselor, bookkeeper, and a few others providing support for course development, instruction, and the organization as whole. We had about 60 total employees including teachers.
