FSWC – Lee is a Cognia accredited and dynamic learning environment that is dedicated to creating and sustaining the independent learning process. In 2021 Cognia named FSWC – Lee a School of Distinction, one of 80 world wide. A focus on helping students construct knowledge through projects, hands on activities, and lots of academic debate and discussion helps vest dedicated students in their own success. Teachers are not primarily in charge of dispensing information but rather serve to monitor a structure where students can develop critical thinking skills to access, apply, and investigate relevant topics. Approximately 35% of our student body qualifies for free or reduced lunch.
AdvancED (now Cognia) STEM Certification is the first internationally recognized mark of quality for STEM schools and programs and FSWC – Lee was the first public charter school in Florida to earn this distinction. FSWC – Lee’s commitment to STEM was reaffirmed by Cognia during a 2022 visit.
An integral part of our mission is to connect qualified and motivated students to maximizing their dual enrollment options. Sophomore students with a 3.5 may qualify to take a single class and Junior and Senior students with a 3.0 are eligible for full time dual enrollment status. FSWC – Lee is a public charter high school serving up to 436 students operating on the campus of, and under the direction of Florida SouthWestern State College. The Lee County School District is the local sponsor. Full details about the school’s governing board (including meeting dates and past meeting dates and minutes, the annual budget, governance letter, SPAR report, audit and ESSER fund plans), as well as related management issues are available at www.fsw.edu.
