Situated in Northwestern Pennsylvania, Fort LeBoeuf High School (FLB) sits high atop a hill in the small historic town of Waterford. Rich in tradition and pride, the successes of FLB are built upon a foundation of caring that begins with school personnel, and diffuses outwards towards students and the community. Teachers, administrators, transportation personnel, food service and custodial staff - all members of the FLB family contribute to the culture of caring that creates the optimal environment for learning. The challenge to "Leave a Legacy" is a message that is planted in the halls and classrooms of FLB, and blooms in the hearts of staff and students. The students of FLB are encouraged every day to find their passions and leave their legacies to make the world a better place.

In addition to a culture based in caring and encouragement, FLB has established a curriculum that provides students the opportunities to prepare academically for a "lateral transition" to their post-secondary education. The development of the AP program, in all academic disciplines, has been instrumental in both the success of FLB students and FLB. The adoption of a new AP course requires a retrofit approach, as lower level courses have to be revised, to enable a smooth transition for students into the AP programs. FLB adopted its first AP course in 2000, and now offers 15 total AP courses and continues to seek more opportunities for our students. The ability to reach higher academically means all of FLB continues to aim higher.
