Welcome to Lake Minneola High School! This Flyer Will Provide Current and Prospective Students

Welcome to Lake Minneola High School! This flyer will provide current and prospective students information regarding course offerings at LMHS. Course offerings are subject to change and are based upon availability and student interest. Every effort is made to meet the requests of each student, but final schedules cannot be guaranteed.

Some courses are specific to a grade level or may require a prerequisite or previous course achievement for participation. Other courses are required for specific students based on previous FSA or End of Course (EOC) exam scores. Students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) may have specific course requirements as part of their IEP. All course selections will be reviewed by the grade level guidance counselor to assure that each student registers for an appropriate course of study.

Each school year, students take a variety of both core academic (Math, Science, English and Social Studies) courses as well as electives (fine or performing arts, foreign language, physical education) or Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes. Every effort is made to place students in their chosen courses, but final decisions are frequently made on a space available basis.

Graduation requirements are specific for each cohort group as determined by the year the student entered 9th grade. Students must complete the graduation requirements as determined by the State of Florida. This information is available at

Please feel free to contact the LMHS Guidance Department by phone (352-394-9600) or online through the LMHS website at Graduation requirements are also available through the guidance website.

Thank you and welcome to LMHS, Home of the HAWKS!
