Seminole County Public Schools is committed to creating positive learning environments, promoting kindness between all individuals, and creating a safe community. This is only possible through the support of our community, parents and educators.

Keeping our children focused and leaning in the classroom is key. Distractions like bullying, drug use and crime take away a student’s opportunity to fully engage in their education.
