Florin High School is a high school in Sacramento, California. It is part of the Elk Grove Unified School District.

History[edit]

Florin High School opened in 1989, the third high school in the district. It has since then remained in continuous operation. The district named Florin High after Florin, a neighborhood in unincorporated Sacramento County, California that used to be a farming community growing primarily strawberries until a combination of the Japanese American Internment and land development replaced the strawberry fields with suburban tracts.

Architecture[edit]

Florin High School's architecture adopts the University of Virginia's "academical village" building plan.[2] This plan anchors the school on the library. Two parallel rows of classrooms run down from behind the library with a manicured lawn in between the two rows. Other permanent classrooms exist as contemporaries to the anchor architecture plan. Since the school's inception, the Elk Grove Unified School District has added a number of other permanent and temporary classrooms.
