F. L. Schlagle High School is a fully accredited, public high school located in Kansas City, Kansas, United States, serving students in grades 9–12. The principal is Mrs. Yolanda Thompson. The mascot is the Stallion and the school colors are blue, white, and gold.
In September 1973, F. L. Schlagle High School opened. The school was named after Frank Leslie Schlagle, the former superintendent of schools (1932–1962). Opening of the school was accompanied by a major shift in attendance zones between the old Washington district and the old USD #500. The Schlagle zone was carved from the Washington and Wyandotte areas, but in addition, a major part of the Wyandotte zone lying generally north of Quindaro Boulevard and east as far as 12th Street was attached to the Washington zone. The effect of those changes was to increase significantly the numbers and proportions of Black students at Washington, to reduce the Black enrollment at Wyandotte and to establish an integrated student body at Schlagle.
