Principal Picure

UKnighted We Stand!

Thank you for choosing Ocoee High School and welcome to Knight N"A"tion where "Kindness and Compassion Reign." I am proud to serve as your next principal and carry on the strong culture and traditions that make it so great to be an Ocoee Knight. At Ocoee High School our strength lies in our diversity, and I am committed to creating a culture of inclusiveness and connectedness; preparing our students to live and work in a global society. I will work tirelessly to ensure that every student feels welcomed, accepted, and at home at Ocoee High School.

Ocoee High School Students: I challenge you to get involved. We offer award winning arts programs, a "Gold Medallion Award" winning student government association, an innovative and cutting-edge agriculture program, more than eighteen competitive sports programs, and a wide-array of clubs and organizations. I also challenge you to push yourself academically, to reach higher and dream bigger, than you have before. We offer a wide range of accelerated course options including Dual Enrollment through Valencia, UCF, UF, and Embry Riddle; Career and Technical Education Dual Enrollment through Orange Technical College; Advanced Placement courses; and a Cambridge program which affords you the opportunity to earn an internationally recognized diploma; and in turn, a Florida Bright Futures Academic Scholar's award. With hard work and commitment, you truly can become anything you want to be.

Ocoee High School Parents: A strong relationship between parents, teachers, and the school is critical in ensuring that each of our children are successful. I encourage you to remain active and involved in your child's academic life throughout their high school career. I challenge you to monitor your child's progress weekly in Skyward and check Canvas. If your child needs support, we are here to help. Please reach out to your child's teachers and ask about additional support, resources, and tutoring opportunities. If you have suggestions, ideas, or would like to be more involved at the school, please do not hesitate to reach out to our administration team.

Ocoee High School Staff: Thank you for your commitment and dedication to nurturing and developing the next generation of leaders. I am in awe of your ability to adapt so quickly and teach in new and innovative ways in the midst of a global pandemic. Your hard work is valued and your impact on the lives of our students is immeasurable.

Dr. Lisa Karcinski
