Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the School District of Florence County, where We Positively Affect the Lives of Children. I hope you find our redesigned website a beneficial resource. If there is anything specific you are looking for or would like to know more of, please contact me directly at and I’ll promptly reply or direct you to the individual who can best help you.

We Positively Affect the Lives of Children by providing opportunities that expose students to a variety of academic and extra-curricular offerings. By assuring that our students have positive experiences both within and beyond the classroom, the lessons learned will carry relevance for future application. Together, we work as a team at the School District of Florence County to assure we meet our mission in promoting a culture of continuous improvement. Our professional teachers and supporting staff are the catalyst of inspiration for our students, and they are supported by a Board of Education that governs and allocates resources for a maximum return to our students.

The recent addition of our Fab Lab is just one example that illustrates our commitment to being a leader in providing great educational experiences for our students. In addition, we value the support of our community and others in our region; we welcome those to participate in the Fab Lab and many other opportunities here at Florence County schools. With the support of our great county, complimented by our partnerships with both local and regional industry and collaboration with post-secondary institutions, our students have the opportunity for many successes.

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in the School District of Florence County. Together We Positively Affect the Lives of Children.

Always in Education,


Ben Niehaus, District Administrator
