Attention Students: Sign up for Academic Lab at least one day in advance. Because of the lack of space and high demand to use computers the media center will not accept anyone who tries to sign up the day of Academic Lab. Academic Lab is a time for studying, reading, or working on class materials. It is not a time to play video games on the computers. If you are caught doing this, you will be written up and sent back to your academic lab advisor.
The Media Center is a wonderful location and resource to help students with their quest for knowledge. That is why only two things are required of students when they enter the Media Center: respect and responsibility. When students are taking a test, please be respectful and keep conversation to a minimum. Take care of the school's resources (computers, books, flash drives, etc.) because they are the only resources the high school has in its possession. The bottom line is: "You break it, you buy it," and we are not kidding in the least.
Media Center Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday→ 7:00am - 3:00pm
After School Study Hall: Monday - Thursday → 2:45pm - 3:45pm

Flat Rock's Alma Mater: Green and Gold
Hail to thee ol' green and gold
From the students young and old.
Through the halls we hear the cheers
Echoes now from bygone years.
Now for all the Love we bear,
Gladly we thy colors wear.
Flaunt them boldly to the sky
For we love thee, Flat Rock High!
Cheers, cheers for ol' Flat Rock High
Our green and gold is floating on high
Onward, onward, always fight
We'll beat our foes with all of our might
Block that kick and hold that line
We will be fighting all of the time
Spirit ahead with a one, two, three
And lead us to victory!
Our mission is to enable students and staff
to become effective lifelong users of
the information and ideas found in
both print and electronic resources.
