High School Information

The School District of Lee County invites all 8th grade students and their parents to the inaugural High School Student Enrollment Showcase on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at the Lee County Public Education Center. All 15 traditional high schools and Lee Virtual School will be represented and available to answer questions about their academic programs, career academies and activities they offer.

“We want our incoming high school students to choose a school that meets their interests but recognize not every family has the ability to attend each school’s open house”, said Superintendent Dr. Christopher Bernier. “By holding a showcase, with every school available on the same day, we are making it easier on our families to compare the high schools in their zone. All of our high schools have done a great job creating unique opportunities so that every student can find their place.”
