North America, United States, Seminole County

Oviedo High School is a grade 9-12 public secondary school set on a 52-acre (210,000 m) campus in Oviedo, Florida, a growing community situated in southeastern Seminole County operated by Seminole County Public Schools. The “Oviedo School” was established in 1932 as a comprehensive K-through-12 educational facility; members of the first graduating class received their diplomas in 1935. The secondary grades separated from the elementary in 1948, and the upper level, which moved to the current site in 1969, became Oviedo High School, now one of the oldest schools in Central Florida. The school is currently undergoing a $50 million renovation project. The school newspaper is the "Lion's Tale", an award-winning paper recognized by the National Scholastic Press Association, the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Florida Scholastic Press Association. Six out of the last eight years Oviedo High School has been rated an “A” school by the Governor's A+ Plan for Education; more than any other high school in Seminole County. The school had 5 National Merit Semifinalists this year (class of '08), and 2 National Hispanic Scholars.
