Coral Springs High School was the city's first high school. The school originally opened as a collection of portable classrooms at what is now the site of Coral Springs Medical Center, with a student population of some 1,200 students. In 1976, the main building opened at its current location. By the 1980-1981 school year, CSHS was organized into double sessions to accommodate 3,764 students. By the fall of 1981, a second high school - J. P. Taravella High School - was opened, thereby reducing the student population down to 2,400 students.
Academically, CSHS excelled among all secondary schools in the state. By 1984, a state Education Committee had selected CSHS as one of the top seven secondary schools in Florida. By then, over 80% of all graduating seniors attended college. At that time, CSHS accommodated over 3,000 students between the main campus and some 47 portable classrooms. The school boasted many National Merit Scholars, as well as teachers who were recognized state wide - and nationally - as some of the best in their profession.
Athletically, CSHS won the All County Sports Trophy for four consecutive years in the early 1980s. In 1979, the Girls Basketball Team won the state title. After the first 10 years of existence, some 111 trophies had filled the school's trophy cases for individual and team excellence.
In 1993 the wrestling team lead by coach Dan Jacobs and Henry "Hank" Johnson went undefeated for two seasons. Team captain John Moran won the state title in his weight class during the 1994 season, along with his brother Matt, the Moran brothers dominated the local wrestling challenges.
The school newspaper, The Chronicle, has made great strides in recent years, winning most improved newspaper in Broward County in the annual Sun Sentinel awards. The newspaper recently tied for second best editorial/opinion section, and has won numerous honorable mentions.
The school's chapter of the National Honor Society has been continuously ranked as a golden chapter of distinction by the BCNHS.
