Since 1887

February 5, 2018

Try to imagine what life was like in Lee County in 1887. There were no roads, no electricity and every person carried a smudge pot to keep the thousands of mosquitos away. We have come a long way from students carrying smudge pots to now students carry chromebooks. From a county with no electricty or roads, to electric cars driving on roads like I-75 and Tamiami Trail (US-41). Welcome to Lee County, Florida! #LoveLeeSchools
