Principal's Message

Welcome to Ocoee High School!
Be Kind – Be Brave – Be You
Belonging does not require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are.” - Brené Brown

Lisa KarcinskiThank you for choosing Ocoee High School and welcome to Knight Nation! 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 truly grateful to be a part of this amazing, caring, and dedicated team of educators. Your hard work is valued and your impact on the lives of our students is immeasurable.

I know that our students and teachers are resilient.  This year we will focus our efforts on helping our students accelerate their learning by incorporating writing, inquiry, collaborative structures, and various other research based strategies and approaches to learning.  We will continue to sow character and social emotional skills in our curriculum.  I am confident that together we will help our entire community heal.
