Lemon Bay High School



High School is back in session for another school year, but this year is different. The new buildings are completed after a $40 million construction project and now the students can move completely across campus without going outside into the weather.  The classrooms have all the most up-to-date training aids at the teachers disposal, a great  gymnasium,  weight room, cafeteria and theater just to name some of the features.
