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.
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.
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.

Students may now bring their laptops on campus and make use of the wireless network here at Lake Weir High. This is a great opportunity to learn how to use a laptop as a learning tool in preparation for attending college or obtaining a job.
Please read the Protocol for the use of electronic devices on campus agreement.
Supervision is provided for thirty minutes after any school event. Students who are not picked up within the thirty minutes following a school event: game, dance, field trip, etc., will be banned from attending the next school event. Students who are repeatedly picked up late, may be banned from all after school activities for the entire semester
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.
In accordance with E.P.A. regulations, all Marion County Schools have been inspected for asbestos containing materials. The original inspection along with a diagram of the location(s), and a copy of all re-inspections has been made available in the administrative office at each school for review.
