The Alexander D. Henderson University School/FAU High School is a national exemplary model for school systems and teacher preparation programs improving education for diverse student populations through innovative, faculty-developed research and curriculum.
Florida Atlantic University High School (FAU HS) is a dual enrollment high school on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. We are not a part of the Palm Beach County School System, but we are a public school under the auspices of the State University System. We have been rated an “A” school since 2004. Our Principal/Director is Dr. Tammy Ferguson and the Dean of the College of Education, Dr. Valerie Bristor, is the Superintendent.
Our school is unique in the way that students spend their 9th grade year in a typical high school classroom setting, taking advanced coursework. This prepares them for Grades 10-12 where all classes are collegiate classes taken at the University for both high school and college credit. Typically, when students graduate from FAU HS, they have also earned three years worth of college credits. Some have even received their Bachelor Degree!
