Jess Rines – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) –  LRHS has been designated a “School of Excellence” by the Florida State Board of Education. The Mustangs were the only Manatee County high school to receive the award.

The “School of Excellence” recognition requires that a school be in the “A” or “B” grade ranges for the three most recent academic years, and to spend two of those years in the 80th percentile. Out of over 600 Florida high schools, only 96 achieved this feat.

“What makes this recognition special is that a school must consistently produce strong scores,” said LRHS Principal Craig Little.

“I am so proud of our staff and students for receiving this honor. It’s their hard work and commitment that made it happen.”

Manatee County Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene is just as proud of the award as our administrators around campus.

“The students, parents, teachers, support employees, and administrators will serve as shining examples to all of us as to what is possible and obtainable,” said Greene.
