Lee County Schools "A District of Distinction"

Vision:  Lee County Schools, creating a successful future one student at a time.

Mission Statement: The mission of the Lee County School District is to foster trust, growth, and  accountability in partnership with students, staff, parents, and the community.

Belief Statements

We believe all students should be surrounded by a positive learning environment that will ensure their safety, stimulate their minds, and challenge their abilities.   

We believe in teachers working together. We must have an organizational structure and schedule that gives all teachers time to plan and deliver integrated instruction aimed at teaching high-level academic content.

We believe a positive attitude, high expectations, and accountability must be modeled as an exemplary behavior for all students and adults.  

We believe student achievement is a shared responsibility between home, school and the community.  

We believe students should understand the importance of hard work in achieving their goals, persevering through challenges and maintaining a positive outlook.
