Schools of Excellence GraphicThe following six Osceola County schools have been designated as Schools of Excellence by the State Board of Education in October 2018:

--Celebration K-8 School

--Harmony Community School

--Kissimmee Elementary School

--New Dimensions High School

--Osceola County School for the Arts

--Professional & Technical High School (PATHS)

To be eligible for an initial designation as a School of Excellence, a school had to receive a grade of A or B in each of the most recent three school years, and had to rank at the 80th percentile or higher for their school type for at least two of the last three years. Qualifying schools shall retain the designation for up to three years. The designation grants administrative flexibility to the state’s top schools so that the instructional personnel and administrative staff at such schools can continue to serve their communities and increase student learning to the best of their professional ability.
“I am extremely proud of these schools’ continued commitment to developing students who are community, college, and career ready,” said Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace.
