 “HOME OF THE HURRICANES”

At Lake Weir High School our vision is for students, staff, parents and the community to work together in developing high-achieving, confident, life-long learners and responsible citizens.

The faculty and staff of Lake Weir High School are dedicated to our mission of providing a learning environment that is safe and secure based on a relevant, disciplined and comprehensive educational program. We strive to encourage the potential of each individual student. We ask your support in working with us to make your high school experience productive and enjoyable. 

Parent and student involvement in school and extra-curricular activities is important; we encourage you to share our pride and become involved. . 

Mr. Wayne Livingston, Principal

Our Vision 

Our mission is to motivate students and teachers to strive for excellence in academics, where habits of lifelong learning are developed, where responsibility and caring for each other and the environment are fostered, where social and emotional growth is nurtured, and where cooperation among all members of the school community helps prepare students to meet life's challenges.

International Baccalaureate Program

In addition to the programs that have been put in place to help students achieve and become the best they can be, Lake Weir High, under the direction of Principal Cynthia Saunders, began the accreditation process for becoming an International Baccalaureate school in the 2007-2008 school year.

We have received our official authorization and Lake Weir is part of the IB World Community. We began offering the IB Diploma Programme classes in the fall of 2010, and our first IB class graduated in 2012.

PERT Testing Information

The PERT (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test) is a test that will measure a student’s college readiness.  The legislature has passed a law that certain juniors must take the PERT in order to determine what classes they will need in their Senior Year and any seniors who are not College Ready. Additionally, if students did not pass the Algebra I EOC a PERT concordant score of 97 can replace the EOC.  The PERT will be available for students who are interested in the College of Central Florida or Dual Enrollment.  Please click the link for the PERT Parent Letter
