    Magnet Application Information

         The application process is different depending on whether your student is an in-boundary or out-of-boundary student.  Read below for specific information on how your student can become part of our FLHS Flying "L" family.

    In-Boundary Magnet Students

         All eligible students living within the boundary zone of FLHS are guaranteed a spot in one of our magnet programs.  To be eligible, students must have a 2.5 GPA or higher AND a Level 3 or higher on their FSA or EOC exams for Reading and Math.  There is no need to complete an application on School Choice if you wish to attend a magnet program at your boundary school.  
         To register as an in-boundary magnet student at FLHS, please check our Magnet Events Calendar and look for "Registration Event: In-Boundary Magnet Students Only" to find a special registration nights scheduled just for you!  These events will take place in March/April.
