Lake Wales High School

1 Highlander Way


Lake Wales Senior High School was constituted in 1924 and had a total student body of 85 students, five full time faculty members, and one administrator. Today Lake Wales High School is a member of the Lake Wales Charter Schools System which are public schools sponsored by the Polk County School System. The Highlanders presently host over 1300 students, over 90 full time Faculty members and Paraprofessionals, three Guidance Counselors, a Career Specialist, six Administrators, and one School Resource Officer. While our facilities have changed (the original school burned in 1977 and presently houses a community center) and our Faculty and Student population has grown and diversified, our core ideologies remain the same.
