The 2011-2012 school year was the first year for Wacoochee Elementary School. In the Smiths attendance zone of Lee County, the schools were reconfigured. Previously there was a K-1 school (Smiths Primary), a 2-3 school (Smiths Elementary), and a 4-6 (Smiths Intermediate) in this area. Once the new high school was complete, the Junior High school moved into where the high school was previously. That left this building vacant. Lee County changed the configuration to what we have now with four K-6 schools (East Elementary, South Elementary, West Elementary and Wacoochee Elementary) where the students are zoned for each particular school. We have approximately 540 students at WES. We are very proud of our school and are excited about the positive climate that has been established here!
Some of the goals that we are going to focus on for 2017-2018 are:
- Tiered instruction
- Standards-based instruction
- Student engagement
- Positive learning environment
We look forward to working with all stakeholders of WES this year!
