Central Pasco School System

The Pasco County school system is recognized across the state for its innovative and challenging instructional programs and teaching practices focused on technology and high standards of excellence. There are also two private schools.

From pre-K through 12th grade the classrooms are organized into teams to create an environment offering Continuity of Caring. This concept offers students the opportunity to work together, and learn from a consistent group of teachers and staff for more than the usual one year.

Land O’ Lakes High School students are organized into Learning Communities to make better connections between what they are learning and what they will be doing in the future. Land O’ Lakes High also provides students the opportunity to enroll in advanced placement classes to earn college credit while in high school, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma program, a rigorous program of studies. This diploma is accepted at universities and colleges throughout the world.

Central Pasco Students continuously perform at, or above, national state averages on the (SAT) college entrance exam, the (FCAT), the High School Competency Test and the Stanford Achievement Test. Eleven of our teachers are certified by the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards. This is the highest level of teacher certification in the nation. Pasco-Hernando Community College, 15 minutes away, offers a workplace Learning Internship Program.
