West Shore Junior/Senior High

This National Blue Ribbon School’s motto is “Excellence Achieved,” which is why it attracts ambitious students seeking a challenging middle school and high school experience. Students work towards earning a Diploma of Distinction by taking accelerated classes in a nurturing environment with smaller class sizes. As an open enrollment school of choice, students in grades 7th through 12th can attend regardless of their assigned school with transportation provided at designated pickup points.

Each student working towards a Diploma of Distinction is required to complete two Accelerations, advanced classes for extra credit, to graduate. Students can choose to complete one Acceleration in middle school or complete both Accelerations in high school. In middle school, these accelerated courses include Foreign Language, Algebra I Honors, Geometry Honors, or Biology Honors. In high school, students can take college-level classes including Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes or computer based courses through Brevard Virtual School. Here, technology is equally important as textbooks in a student’s learning experience. An open computer lab and mobile laptop lab give students daily use of computers in all areas of study from foreign language to graphic design and internet access to research class projects. Many teachers also post homework assignments online for students and parents to access on the school’s website.

Because responsibility and self-discipline are key to lifelong success, the school has a strong character education program that pairs each student with a mentor or advocate. Part of each student’s personal growth comes from a commitment to community service as part of the school’s curriculum.
