The Lee district in Florida is home to 112 schools, including 61 elementary schools, 18 middle schools, 29 high schools, and 4 alternative schools. The data reveals a diverse landscape, with standout schools like The Sanibel School, Pinewoods Elementary School, and Fort Myers Beach Elementary School achieving exceptional academic performance, with proficiency rates as high as 100% on state assessments. In contrast, some schools like Island Park High School and Donna J. Beasley Technical Academy struggle with very low graduation rates and poor academic outcomes.

The data also reveals significant disparities in key metrics across the district. Graduation rates range from as low as 12.1% at City Of Palms Charter High School to as high as 98.9% at Florida Southwestern Collegiate High School. Chronic absenteeism rates vary widely as well, from 4.6% at Florida Southwestern Collegiate High School to over 96% at Northern Palms Charter High School. These disparities suggest significant inequities in resources, teaching quality, and other factors that contribute to student success across the Lee district.

The data also highlights the exceptional performance of smaller schools, such as The Sanibel School and Fort Myers Beach Elementary, which are able to achieve outstanding results, potentially due to factors like smaller class sizes and a strong focus on academics. Conversely, the struggles of alternative and charter schools in the district, like Island Park High School and Donna J. Beasley Technical Academy, underscore the challenges these types of schools may face in serving their student populations. Overall, the data paints a complex picture of the Lee district, revealing both areas of excellence and significant room for improvement to ensure equitable educational opportunities for all students.
