We have a nationally and internationally recognized program. Dr. Anna Winneker of the Florida PBIS Project and the University of South Florida recognized our program. Thirty-Five (35) administrators from the Netherlands visited our program on Valentines' Day 2017. We are PBIS mentors to schools of Sumter, Lake, Seminole, Pasco, Hernando, Indian River, Columbia, Dade, and Taylor counties. Our Principal, Mr. James C. Presley, speaks around the nation on "Creating a Positive School Culture".
