Francis Howell Union

Francis Howell Union High School (FHU) is an alternative high school that provides a smaller learning environment for students who are considered credit deficient. FHU is designed to meet the needs of at risk students. At risk students are students whose educational outcomes are in jeopardy because they are experiencing academic deficits, have become disillusioned with school and learning, or are impacted by other factors which impede educational and social development.  

Students at FHU follow the same curriculum as other district high schools. However, a variety of instructional strategies are used to enhance student success. Students have a blended curriculum where some courses are taken on the computer using the A+ Anywhere Learning System software (A+ LS).

This computer based program provides core curriculum and assessment tools to match skill levels of all students, whether on a developmental, remedial, or enhanced learning track. The school day is also structured differently than a conventional high school. School hours are from 7:55 AM to 1:50 PM and the day runs on a four block schedule.

  • Students also have the opportunity to earn their credits back at a faster pace than the traditional highs school setting.
  • Breakfast and lunch are available to FHU students on a daily basis. Students can utilize accounts and pin numbers to purchase food.
  • Students may apply to attend FHU through their home school and can receive an application from their high school counselor.
