I went to The Sanibel School for Elementary and Middle School. Since this was a small school on a small island, it almost looked like a private school. Beautiful building, great sports fields, excellent indoor/outdoor rec facilities. Great teachers and lots of volunteers. Unlike most other schools The Sanibel School added Spanish 1 and Algebra 1 to the Middle School curriculum. This was great! Saved me from having to do it in High School.
I currently am a senior in the IB Program at Fort Myers High School. Definitely the top public school in the district and possibly one of the best in Florida. I will graduate in May with my IB program and a weighted GPA of 5.7! I accumulated a lot of credits that will be very useful when I start at The University of Florida in July. All-in-all, the Lee County Public School System has been GREAT for me :-)

My overall experience in lee county public schools has been great, from the dedicated teachers willing to do anything for their students to the administers helping kids graduate. No matter of the situation or what your going through lee county school district makes sure you go above and beyond the florida state standards. I went to two different lee county schools South Fort Myers high and Island park high which helped me work with a school schedule that fit the situation I was placed in. I would highly recommend the lee county public school services to anyone I knew looking for well dedicated teachers, great peers, and well rounded administers.
I like the school I attend, but as far as the entire district, I've seen great high school campuses. I like the facility and the atmosphere here in FL, the teachers I've had actually teach and I feel like I'm getting the preparation I need for college. It's overall a great place to learn!
