Hendry County School District is America's sweetest school district. From raising sugar cane, to citrus, to cattle, Hendry County is situated in the rural agricultural Heartland of Florida. We have over 7,000 students and close to 1,000 employees. Both our staff and students come from a rich diversity of experiences. With over 65% percent of students of Hispanic descent and 15% of African American, we are truly a majority minority school district. We are proud of our student diversity and the opportunity that diversity has to enrich the learning experiences of our students.
We are also proud of the positive impact our teachers and staff have on our students daily. Both of our high schools have produced the best graduation rates in their respective histories in recent years. This is a testament to the work our teachers do in our entire pre-K-12 system. From offering voluntary pre-kindergarten opportunities at each one of our six elementary schools to advanced adult education programs in welding and diesel mechanics, we offer a wide array of programs designed to inspire, engage, challenge our students to be the best version of themselves.
We are proud of our Leader in Me and positive behavior and intervention programs that both teach our students to make good decisions. The Collegiate Academies at both high schools annually see students graduate with both their high school diploma and an Associate of Arts (two year college) degree from Florida Southwestern State College. Our schools are offering the types of programs that help our students to create a positive and fulfilling future for themselves. Whether a student is interested in pursuing college or a vocational trade after high school, our district meets the needs of our students. Through robust Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) and Advanced Placement (AP) programs and an ever-expanding course offering in Career and Technical Education (CTE), our students will be prepared for both college and/or a career.
Students will be prepared for the future of their choice through equitable learning experiences and high expectations of achievement with the ability to think critically and to become contributing members of society.
Through a culture of excellence and equity, an engaging and supportive environment, meaningful relationships, strong communication and collaboration, Hendry County School District puts students on the path to a positive and fulfilling future.
