About Area Schools

Hendry County’s public school system serves more than 7,000 students in grades K-12 at six elementary, two middle, and two high schools. A wide range of educationally beneficial experiences awaits each student who enters our schools, and we take great pride in seeing students progress academically through the grade levels as they reach the ultimate goal of high school graduation. We have instituted academically rigorous reading and math programs at the elementary and middle school levels. Elementary schools are using a variety of push-in and enhancement programs. Middle schools are instituting new and rigorous math and science curriculums, and adding a number of classes that students can take for high school credit. High school students are finding increased opportunities to take Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes, as well as having the ability to participate in many industry certification academies and programs in Clewiston and LaBelle.
